    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Global, great people, serious about work-life balance. Travel to exotic places but not too much as well.

    Cons

    Lots of bureaucracy. Career progressions can be slow as people tend to stay for a long time. 15-20 yrs managers are common.

    Advice to Management

    Stop trying being a 'cheap' company

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

    Pros

    Huge variety of work - no two months are the same Lots of opportunity to develop Great training budget You will work hard A company whose management actually communicates what's going on Make contacts all over the world - a very mind-opening experience Treats people as people, not just numbers

    Cons

    Very limited promotion opportunities - PMI hires the best people, and they tend to stay Used to be great for international assignments, but there are now very few opportunities unless you are already located in Europe (eastern or western) or in one of the lower-cost countries in Asia or Latin America. If you're in a high-cost Asian or Latin country, you won't be going anywhere.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the communication happening Change the performance appraisal process - there are good people every year who get rated "unsatisfactory" because of an arbitrary target, even though they delivered on everything. This has a huge negative impact on staff morale.
