    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.
