    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Philip Morris International full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great peaks, free parking and healthcare

    Cons

    Tenure is rewarded, so managers that have been with company for 10+ years become seniors, with little real experience or business acumen. Unable to plan or execute business strategies, very reactive.

    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.

    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.
