    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!

    Pros

    Great pay for hourly, decent benefits, profit sharing second to none.

    Cons

    As in all industries you can get a bad supervisor that tries to make your world hard but for the most part a good atmosphere. Overtime can be rough at times. sometimes forced 7days and 12 hours

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees.

    Pros

    Can work without talking to anyone all day. Free t-shirts, Join a team and sit in the break room all day instead of doing audits. The more teams you join the less you have to be on the floor actually working. Non-productive is the key to easy weekly pay! You don't have to be smart or think for the production jobs here. Free vouchers to the cafeteria when you behave. Throw me a banana!

    Cons

    Forced over time, pay is average for VA you have to work over time to make the money you could make at a professional job with no over time. The majority of the workers are uneducated and act is if they are field workers. NO room for advancement unless you want to be a BUL and give up your pension for demeaning work. Too many interns. The CEO needs to cut pension, hire contractors, and put the uneducated workers back in their place. The company does not really pay for school. None of the workers go anyway. If you just want physical work with no meaning PMUSA is where it is. Generations of families work there with no real goals. Too many of the salaried workers hope to get to headquarters one day but they stay in the positions for decades and add no value to the company. The CEO needs to do a overhaul and clean house. Save money and get rid of the over paid workers! Anyone could do those jobs for $9 an hour and be proud! Poor union. Union workers are machine operators who love the time off the floor lol.

    Advice to Management

    Clean house and notice that your workers are overpaid and many are not retiring because of this and all of the committees you pay workers to be on doing audits is just time that they ride the clock, Your tenured salaried workers stay in positions and do nothing to add value. Hire more innovative university grads and replace the operators on the floor with contractors. The work isn't hard at all. You can hire people to do the physical work running machines for way less! Force these people to go out and take the time to educate themselves. Hire students who are looking for valuable experiences and want to learn the product life cycle. Replace non productive BUL's who sit in the offices all day.
