Pros

The company has been in business for 250 years and has shown profit and growth during its entire tenure. It is not the biggest, but it doesn't strive to be. It is a no nonsense company that does the best it can in a challenging industry. The requirements are challenging, but not overly excessive.

Cons

The industry continues to shrink and this might limit mobility. However, the company does not "binge and purge," which means the company expansion is consistent with market conditions. The federal government will continue to have a larger role in this industry, but difficult to say how much and how that will affect employees.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The company must remain nimble and able to take advantage of opportunities. This can best be accomplished by remaining lean and controlling costs.

    Pros

    Pros are vacation time, and benefits

    Cons

    Your Division Manager will take care of sales reps close to office.... because regional manager see's these areas. Outside reps are on their own. Do not get sick and ask your boss to come out and talk so your can work out time off. He is too busy. Probably on the phone with his wife again.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat sales representatives with some respect. Quit expecting them to double the work of PM and RJ and pay less and have larger territory's. Realize Division Managers are the problem -- why do so many good sales reps go bad... maybe because they are tired of not getting supplies, help or respect. They are tired of covering for the Division Managers. Also -- Division Managers seek and search to fire sales representatives that will not lie for them. Maybe the Regional Managers should look at the division managers - Time Lorillard is hones and realizes the employees they had were good. Just fed up.

    Pros

    If you enjoy sales -- you can manage a territory with little leadership or help by management.

    Cons

    1. Management never provides P.O.S. undless their supervisor is coming to town
    2. District Manager is always on the phone to wife -- but does not care if your family sees you.
    3. I enjoyed my job -- but could not get the tools from management to do my job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Realize sales representatives are the link between company and businesses even in non urban areas. Care about your sales representatives and take miles into account. Unfair to treat rural reps the same as city reps. Very rude to families.
