Altria
HR Shared Services Specialist (Current Employee) –  Richmond, VAFebruary 20, 2019
This company is all about who you are in good with and is an extremely conservative company. They are very involved in helping the community, which I liked. But the culture is very strange and not like anywhere I have been before.

Dynamic, exciting place to work
Sr. Director of Sales (Current Employee) –  Seattle, WAFebruary 12, 2019
While it is a bit stereotypical, the people of Altria make all the difference in the world. While each role has unique challenges, the only limitation in your development is you. There are boundless opportunities for career advancement, but personal situations sometimes preclude folks from those opportunities based on the geographic nature of the business.

Territory Sales Manager (Current Employee) –  FloridaFebruary 3, 2019
Tobacco is a declining industry, that should be a big clue. Stereotypical Fortune 500 sales company with a terrible culture, identity crisis and terrible promotions process. They have corporate layoffs every 3-4 years so don’t expect job security. Promotions are ONLY given to former interns. You have a new manager every 2 years because they are constantly hiring kids and then promoting them with almost no experience into people management roles. High paying entry level job but after 2 years it’s a dead end and the salary quickly loses its spark.
Pros
Company car, starting salary
Cons
Management, tobacco industry, bias promotions, job security, everything else really

Altria: harsh, noninclusive, and not recommended
Manager (Current Employee) –  Richmond, VAJanuary 26, 2019
Altria claims to champion diversity and inclusion, but in practice doesn’t actually value team members who are different. It’s a competitive environment more than a collaborative one. Be expected to have to talk over and interrupt people to make your point, and that upper management/VPs will be consistently rude and will belittle you if they disagree with what you’ve said. They claim to aspire to be the leaders in harm reduction, but stop work on harm reduced products at the drop of a hat. I would not recommend this as a workplace.

Altria is a good company to work for. The company has a bright future but sometimes the restructuring that takes place can totally take you by surprise.

Good company to work for
Senior Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) –  Richmond, VAJanuary 21, 2019
They are in the middle of transforming their culture. Lots of variety in the Admin Assistant role. Not a lot of development opportunities for admins. You have to seek out your own opportunities across the corporation.
Pros
great on site gym
Cons
workforce reductions every few years

Intersting and Challenging place towork
Senior Security Architect (Current Employee) –  Richmond, VAJanuary 15, 2019
If you are seeking a strong challenge where you will have the autonomy to work on prioritized initiatives and assigned objects how you want, when you want, and where you want... this is the place for you.

If you don't look at the clock, watching for the end of the business day to come this is the place for you.

If you are looking for easy days with simple problems to solve, this is not the place for you.

Good work does not speak for itself
Product Integrity Scientist (Current Employee) –  Richmond, VAJanuary 4, 2019
I have had 6 bosses in my 3 full time years with the company. Executives are very protected, information only flows up the chain, 3 of my 6 bosses had really no clue what I did. Don't feel that performance assessments are fair and objective. Boss has lied to my face on more than one occasion.
Pros
good retirement and pay
Cons
no job security unless you are an executive

Established and successful company with great benefits.
TERRITORY SALES MANAGER (Current Employee) –  FloridaDecember 30, 2018
Fortune 200 company with solid management and distribution channel. Territory Sales Managers are provided with fantastic work/life balance, good salary, and great benefits. Work is relatively easy with an established territory of accounts that already purchase products. Trade-off is low ceiling for long-term salary potential and almost meaningless yearly bonuses based on company-wide performance. For those looking to advance, there are plenty of opportunities to develop skills in cross-functional teams and special projects outside of traditional role. However, this work is on your own time with no monetary benefit besides an individual rating multiplier on the yearly bonus. Even the highest rating, which is tough to attain, does not yield a respectable bonus. As with many other companies, your geography preferences will be the greatest determinant of promotion/career opportunities.

Sales Representative and Merchandiser (Former Employee) –  Richmond, VANovember 4, 2018
We trained in all aspects of customer relations. The hardest part of the job was working in the weather. We learned route management, contract preparation, and merchandising. The most enjoyable part of the job was working on our own, which sometimes proved difficult.
Pros
Heathcare, Car
Cons
long days
