I worked at Lorillard

Pros

even for senior scientists it's pretty much a regular 8-5 work day, good pay; workers are nice to work with

Cons

a leadership vacuum in the research area; instead of having a small percentage of bad managers, the vast majority of managers/directors are bad, ranging from control freaks to bullies; managers don't greet or even acknowledge people in the hall ways; the morale is very low, everybody is unhappy

Advice to ManagementAdvice

don't think current management in research has a chance to turn it around; distrust and dislike to too deeply ingrained in workers

    Inconsistent message, all about numbers to impress/satisfy the next level of management

    Pros

    competitive benefit and compensation package

    Cons

    Again all emphasis is put on numbers with less regard to business judgement. Manager's primary concern is to be the top of the "list" regardless of what market dictates.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is a great improvement in communication, but listening is the key.

    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 ManagementAdvice

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