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

    Pros

    PMI trully invests in its employee's development, it is agreat place to work with plenty of opportunities all the time either in your own country or abroad.

    Cons

    As the name says, "fast moving consumer goods" reflects on the speed of change of the Company. Might be well accepted by some, not so much if you are looking for a lot of stability and if you would like to do the same thing for many years.

    Advice to Management

    Understanding it is impossible to change the pace (and it wouldn't be as fun :) ), Management could try to make people feel safer and ensure there is a clear direction.

      Pros

      Excellent in destroying careers as it’s very difficult to switch from here.You become expert in buttering management and you get huge experience in PPT making.You learn how to show work when there is no work done and learn how to waste time.

      Cons

      No career growth,,people are on same designation since 5-7 years.Trade partner GPI drives this organisation.Your career as a sales guy depends upon GPI’s feedback.Bell curve is still followed by HR so every year someone has to be fired,no matter what.Top management are foreigners and have no idea what goes on and middle managers are good for nothing nit-wits who keep changing roles among themselves.Lot of unnecessary...

      Pros

      1. True multinational setup, we have many expats in India, most of them bring a lot of International experience, perspective and a no-nonsense approach,, equally local employees do get an opportunity to go outside India on short term(12-18 months) and long term assignments(~36 months) 2. Good pay master, decent benefits 3. Open culture, good global initiatives 4. High visibility and wider scope of roles(smaller...

      Cons

      1. The type of business that the company operates in (tobacco), and being in wholesale business, puts a lot of restrictions on quality of work. While profiles are wider but most of them are likely to lack depth. For example, your definition of marketing manager in FMCG industry and profile that someone should expect in IPM will be quite different(diluted) 2. Being an MNC, driven mostly by global KPIs and initiatives.....

      Good salary jump at the time of hiring.

      Cons

      Top management in India specially Finance, Legal and HR is not at all good. They treat you like a machine and obselete you once they find you not following their orders. Job stability is a big concern. Lot of top employees were sacked who were serving the company from more than 6-8 years stating they are insufficient/following wrong practices. You have to be a part of some group otherwise you will be nailed out from...
