    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

    Negative Outlook
    No Opinion of CEO

    I worked at Philip Morris International full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great place to work in terms of work/life balance, office atmosphere, modern office, innovative projects to work on and flexible working arrangements

    Cons

    The office atmosphere used to be better with teams collaborating more. Now there’s confusion about what the different teams work on. Performance review is not always fair and can really depend on your age (the younger, the better), how much your manager appreciates your work and how influential your manager is in calibration meetings.

    Advice to Management

    Please put senior managers/directors in place who have local knowledge, i.e. have lived in the UK for a minimum of 5yrs. Local market knowledge/relationships are integral.
