    Pros

    A company that cares about YOU. As an associate: your challenges, development, successes and overall being. As a person: your family, balancing career and home, there when you need them...a true "family" environment. Most importantly, Lorillard Tobacco is a highly successful, 240 year old success story that not only knows who generates that success, but is more than willing to share that success with every associate...which in turn is overwhelmingly reciprocated.

    Cons

    With any international company, there are bound to be some negatives. Lorillard Tobacco must have some, however, they would be extremely isolated and usually attended to and reviewed to insure no repetition. Associates, from field sales representatives to corporate management, are allowed a wide berth in which to operate and achieve success. However, when conflicts occur, everything is studied, researched and reviewed by peer groups and management to not only insure fairness and consistency, but to discover methods to reduce the chances of occuring again.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

    Pros

    Benefits, company car, flexible schedule, pay is good

    Cons

    Company is being sold, CEO is a sell out! CEO cares nothing for the history of our company. CEO is a crook like all the rest of the Executives shifting stock money around. CEO says great things about the company & employees, if it was so good why do you jump ship?

    Advice to Management

    Kick CEO out of office

    Pros

    1) Large company with a small company feel. Really good people.
    2) Very competent CEO and many on the executive management team.
    3) Fun being a part of a very old company that is culturally moving into a newer and more modern environment.
    4) Many of the staff are dedicated employees. Very low turnover rate. Obviously the company is doing something right.
    5) Competitive salary and benefits with minor exception being a very unattractive vacation program

    Cons

    1) Like most companies, there is not a great deal of upward growth opportunity, but a smart person can really shine in this organization if they try.
    2) Some of the old style management still exists which can create a dysfunctional work environment.
    3) The vacation policy is something that could afford some attention and improvement. Could be a burden in attracting and landing good talent.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work and continue to drive our company forward.

    Pros

    The benefits are great and the pay is average versus competition, but benefits make up for a great deal of that. Company car, fuel, and maintenance are paid for by the company. Old-fashion company that keeps its eyes on being profitable more so than being number one for bragging rights. Flat out makes money and if they are making more than last year than job security is good.

    Cons

    It’s a tobacco company; lots of people want to make villains of an industry that provides billions of tax dollars to keep these overspending states afloat. Can not say one bad thing about management from the bottom to the top

    Advice to Management

    Let the guys get rid of the ties in the hot months.
