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

    Pros

    Very rarely do you see a company where most employees have worked 10+ years. It was one of the main selling points for me, especially working in the tech industry, where turnover and job jumping is very common. The benefits are unparalleled, although the base 401k matching could be better and I think it should take effect your first day instead of the current rate (3% matching after 6 months of employment). But there is a student loan repayment plan, schooling FULLY paid for if you want to get your Master's/PhD, deferred profit sharing program which can invest 13%-27% of your base salary in retirement options, etc.

    Cons

    A LOT of the technologies are outdated, so there is a huge gap between the current trend of the tech industry and Altria. But Altria is full aware and making efforts in diminish the gap (thus the reason why I'm here) :)

    I worked at Altria full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Perfect work life balance. Enough vacation days and you can add more.

    Cons

    I started working at Altria straight out of college. They told me they would pay for my relocation but did not tell me I would pay out of pocket then they would pay me back. I was a college student I didn't have money to pay $700 dollars a week to stay in a hotel. They told me to ask my parents for the money or get a credit card. My family does not have that kind of money. I literarily got on my flight not knowing where I would be staying. During my layover I talked to the relocation lady and begged her to help me and they put me in a hotel. Overall, it was stressful.

    Cons

    -Constant onslaught of racist emails from their "diversity" team -Focus on improving the company is secondary to social activism -Merit does not seem to matter. What does matter is kissing up to those above you and nodding in violent agreement with whatever they say no matter how inane.
