    Negative Outlook
    No Opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Altria full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    - 16% in your 401K. This will keep you here further than you will think - Competitive salary out of college - Company car, gas and insurance - Can get promoted for not working very hard if you fit a certain race or gender

    Cons

    - Cigarette volume declines every year (-6% this year). With less volume, less people are needed. Yes, price increases help the company top line but again. Less Volume year over year = less people needed - Culture is at a 10 year low with Howard as CEO. Culture was much better under previous CEO. - FDA scrutiny with JUUL purchase - Layoffs every 2-3 years. (2012, 2014, 2016, 2019). - Becoming less fun and more... cut throat as management positions are less achievable due to layoffs. - Stock price has plummeted from $70 to $43 in two years under CEO due to JUUL & Cronos purchases

    Advice to Management

    - Focus on culture. Is it more broken than any time in the past decade. - Is Howard the leader we want? At what point do we need a regime change? Listen back to Marty’s investor calls and listen to Howard’s. Who inspires confidence?
