    I have been working at Philip Morris USA full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good Pay. Steady employment. Lots of over time

    Cons

    Although the pay is good it is not the premier place it once was. There are companies out there that are equal in pay. The benefit base has been eroding away in the past 12 years. The term industry standard is used to chisel away at what once was. There was a time not that long ago PM was a leader in standards and excelled. Not anymore.

    Advice to Management

    might not want to maintain "Industry Standards"

    I worked at Philip Morris USA full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great starting salary out of college especially in states where cost of living is low. Good training for advancement.

    Cons

    Salaries were the same to start in all states. Only promote within your region. They like to move you out of state when you get promoted so you work is your only focus.

    Advice to Management

    Help employees live where they want even if they means moving to different regions.

    Pros

    The people are wonderful and become family. Once you learn the job, it is pretty straight-forward and simple. You build wonderful relationships with people from all walks of life.

    Cons

    The amount of marketing materials is overwhelming. It’s not bad if you have room in your home to dedicate as an office.
    After a long day, you still have about an hour of computer work. New product launches happen often, as well as display changes (which can take an entire day!
