    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Philip Morris International full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    No real accountability across middle and senior management.

    Cons

    Far too much political performance measurement. Make the most noise and you will move forward.

    Advice to Management

    Establish a vision, mission statement and KPI's to run the business, tobacco is too expensive to sell themselves now.

    I worked at Philip Morris International full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Good development and opportunities to grow.

    Cons

    Yearly appraisal process for salary and bonus reviews needs to be improved. A misguided and poorly implemented forced distribution system leads to a lack of correlation between true merit and reward.
