    I worked at Altria as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Decent compensation and a very flexible schedule

    Cons

    You are working in a dying industry. Just how fast that industry declines is going to be based on a number of factors such as FDA regulation, warning labels, etc, but would you really want to start a career with a company that is i a losing industry? They just had a "restructuring a few months before I started and there was already talk of another restructuring in the not so distant future....

    I have been working at Altria full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    - Great first job out of college, secure
    - Salary, Car, Health Insurance, etc.
    - Crash course in (basic) sales, building relationships in business situations
    - Resume builder

    Cons

    - Monotonous
    - Difficult to build strong relationships with customers due to a constant push of new tobacco products, changes in retail programs, etc.
    - Management is luck of the draw - some are great, some not... depends on location
    - Unhealthy focus on pushing new hires to think about rapid promotion

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Training should be focused on training great sales people, not glorified merchandisers with a handful of statistics in their tool box.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
