    Pros

    The company was filled with quality people that made it a fun place to work. Salary and benefits were top of the line.

    Cons

    I sometimes did not understand the direction that the company was taking when introducing new products. That made it challenging to get them into the marketplace.

    Advice to Management

    They needed to get more feedback from the field sales force prior to coming out with new products and promotions.

    Work Wasn't difficult
    Treated very well by the company
    Could work when needed not mandatory you attend every event
    Fellow employees were good people

    Cons

    There is not much room for upward movement at this position considering it is a menial job.
    Does not provide much of a challenge

    Advice to Management

    Give the lower level employees an opportunity for advancement.
    Try and give the field coordinators more responsibility to keep them on task

    Pros

    Great people and culture. Had a great run with this organization

    Cons

    Morale and appreciation for the company decrease after Murray Kessler arrived.
    Very few of us trusted that creep

    Advice to Management

    Altria CEO Szymanczyk and UST CEO Kessler lied to the workforce when the acquisition started - should have been truthful both both individuals lack integrity

    Pros

    While I was there, UST was the greatest of all corporate cultures I had experienced. They were friendly, helpful, and truly cared for their people. The benefits were bar none, matching $1.50 to every $1 that you put into stock. They had a 90% medical coverage, unlimited personal mileage on a company car, cell phone and high speed DSL reimbursement.

    Cons

    The only con was the one instituted by a competitor during a corporate buyout. The old" were going to keep everyone", but instead let eveyone go. Otherwise, the only downside was everbody loved their job and noone wanted to advance so others could.

    Advice to Management

    Please recognize that People Power is a philosophical way of life not just a corporate concept. Buy low, sell high.
