    Hi there, thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. We’re happy to see your overall satisfaction about the company and the benefits it suggested you within the time you’ve been working with us. It’s great to know you’d recommend our organization to your friends too. However, we’re sorry to hear about your overtime. Providing our people with the opportunity to balance their commitments is something we’re increasingly working towards, providing options like the possibility to work remotely, compress the working week, work part-time or take an unpaid leave.

    I have been working at Philip Morris International full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Very strong community ties and believes in uplifting various areas. Good benefits and salary is generally above market. Team work is encouraged.

    Cons

    People are not always rated for salary increases according to job performance but according to how much your supervisor likes you and liking is usually rated whether you are part of the "click". Very clicky and not all are welcome here. Team work is encouraged however the supervisors tend to take all the recognition and only offer criticism. A select few are also earmarked for promotions and the rest are forced to either stay in their original roles or forced to resign to ensure their own advancement. I was told that I was not employed for a different job, but I was welcome to look for another job.

    We’re sorry that you feel a lack of recognition. Your achievements matter. We believe that excellence should be recognized, celebrated and rewarded. We foster a culture of ongoing day to day recognition. A simple ‘thank you’ or ‘a great job’ can be one of the most meaningful form of recognition. Our PMI Award Programs recognize those employees who have truly made a difference. In addition our recognition program is designed to reward innovative and significant contributions to the business from an individual or team, as well as outstanding leadership qualities. We invite you to sit down with your Line Manager or HR Manager and share your thoughts and needs with them. Speaking up and reporting inappropriate behavior is highly valued in our company.
