    Pros

    The severance package I received after my job was eliminated has helped me weather a tough time in the current economy.

    Cons

    They got bought out by Altria and the HQ was closed. The good work we had done over the years seems to be all for nothing.

    Advice to Management

    Don't undo all the work that went into growing the core brands to what they are. A lot of good people devoted a lot of their lives to that.
