    Advice to Management

    Weed out the staff with multiple complaints that are similar. It seems that tenure is in play above TM status.

    I worked at Swedish Match North America full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Richmond office was very nice and the staff was friendly. Every holiday the company did some type of company wide event which was nice. There was profit sharing every year which was extra money they company put into your 401k based how they did that year. The benefits were decent.

    Cons

    You have a manager that is in Sweden who does not see you daily but bases their reviews based on what they claim others said but where their own personal views. The team was divided and there was not structure team wide. Traveling was a lot when you have a family and there was no regard that you have kids and family to take care of. When I got the job I agreed to travel twice a year and ended up being way more than... that.

    Advice to Management

    Management should treat all team members equally and rules should not apply to only certain people but to everyone. Management was not fit for their position and at times the manager was very rude and provided no help. You don't leave the company you leave the manager! Leaving was the best thing I could have done, I have been happy and at peace.
