    Negative Outlook
    No Opinion of CEO

    I worked at Philip Morris International full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Great people, most of my 9 year career was really great. Always changing, great autonomy, pays well, good perks, and events.

    Cons

    You’ll learn to stop asking “why?”. Most of the time nothing makes any sense, a lot of the activities that engage most of your time, don’t actually relate to your KPI’s. Bi annual performance reviews are highly subjective, decided behind closed doors, and don’t change regardless of the body of evidence you can produce to support your case.

    Advice to Management

    You’ll never beat your opposition, while you remain so reactive

    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.
