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

    Pros

    Competitive pay for entry-level position, great benefits (health insurance, DPS, life insurance, etc). Great people, most people try to help each other.

    Cons

    The job can become very monotonous very fast. For the TSM (Territory Sales Manager) position, you are in charge of about 150 stores and depending on your area it can get old fast.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop pushing so many initiatives on us at once. If we can create out own game plans and have 6 months to implement, it will help grow the business more than pushing a carton of cigarettes on 20 stores.

    I have been working at Altria full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    The leading tobacco manufacturer, distributor and marketer of tobacco in the USA. WIth it's three leading companies, there is always a new launch for a new product.
    In a weak economy, consumers don't think think twice about spending money on alcohol and tobaco. Great stock.

    Cons

    TOO many launches, TOO many objectives to execute on a monthly baises. The worse part being communication. Its always presented in legal terms making it frustrating to understand not only for the sales force, but also for there business partner's.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management knows what they are doing. However, when objectives are handed down to middle and lower management, they will add more objectives to the plate complicating execution.
