    Pros

    Salary. And that is it.

    Forget about closing your career here: you will get fired (silently and quietly) before you turn 50. Guaranteed.

    An old fashioned, traditional, control oriented, mostly secure and stable work environment.

    Current Employee - Business Development & Planning Analyst in Santo Domingo (Dominican Republic)

    I have been working at Philip Morris International full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Work life balance can be good in the right department and supervisor, many opportunities to move across functions and develop your career fast, slightly above average salaries and benefits for consumer goods companies in the country, relaxed and friendly office environment in general.

    Cons

    Cigarette industry carries a stigma, year end performance evaluation "discussions" are kind of pointless, a bad year can really set you back even after several good ones, don't get on the wrong side of the guys on the top, traditional business model not very aligned with current trends weakens learning experience (marketing in special).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve communication regarding payscale improvement potential in order to better know what to expect (like consulting companies do)

    Pros

    good package, good salary and benefits. achievement and results oriented company. many good people. many opportunities, but you need to work really really hard to get career progression

    Cons

    work life balance is big issue across the company. old style management based on directive style, they squeeze employees for every paid penny, slow decision making, all decided only by top managers, no trust to employees and too much politics

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    align words with actions, walk the talk - good objectives and strategies but example needs to be set by senior management teams
