Good company - excellent benefits-well-managed

Sales Representative (Current Employee)
Cheyenne, WY (US)

I have been working at Lorillard

ProsSelf -direction, working independently, opportunity to make excellent salary, benefits are excellent, thanks to ownership of insurance company - of couse, one arm of the company sortof creats the clientele for the other. Wonderful perks like minimum 5 weeks vacation, great retirement, company vehicle, and you can set your own schedule. If you get a good
group of people to work with - this job is wonderful.

ConsLadder-climbing junior management create situations and trim staff to suit their ambitions - costing the company some of its best and brightest. Also - never tell your kids what you do for a living, since they will be hounded at school
by the anti-smokers. Get use to people asking you for freebie cartons. And you mightas well take up smoking yourself, since most staff meetings are in smoke-fileld rooms.

Advice to Senior ManagementRespect your staff more -trust their judgment - they are the noes in the trenches in what is a very unpopular occupation

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Work here if you want to stay below the radar, not advance, collect your pension and retire.
