    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.

    Toxic culture, no receptive to the new ideas. The top management team is known for its exclusion, biased, and close-mindedness. The leadership team does not encourage open communication at all.
