Driven by computer and often unacheivable KPI's rather than building good customer rapport . Which is a shame as there are a lot of great people working for Uncle Phil.

A fantastic company to work for with an emphasis on work life balance. Setting my own hours to start between 7am - 3.30pm somedays and 8.30am - 5pm others.
PMI focussed heavily on business to business dealing with an emphasis on maximising potential income and profit for both parties. Budget forecasting and management, along with precise timing and execution of objectives. Negotiating with existing and new clients was a daily strategy.

Culture was of a high standard with staff incentives and rewards on a quarterly basis.

Data reconcilliation and sorting was sometimes challenging but the tools provided were complimentary of the task.

Job satisfaction was high due to the obstacles in growing a challenging and very restricted product.
Pros
Salary Package
Cons
The growing backlash of working for big tobacco

PML is a company that invested in their people. They also have fantastic systems and training so you can reach your full potential.
The market is high paced and every demanding which can challenge individuals. I experienced excellent values and completely compliant behaviours and will defend their approach from my view point. This is from an employee who has left the business.

The company exists in a dynamic and fast-paced industry (Tobacco) where employees are required to display agility, creativity and the ability to execute both top down and bottom up objectives. Excellent training is provided and there are plenty of opportunities for personal career advancement.

Incredible people who are engaged in their work, but also can approach the employee and talk as with a best friend.
These are people who know perfectly the factory's goals and because of that, the factory grows year by year. Managment is really a big force in the Philip Morris factory, but without the usual factory workers there would be no success.

Great company and culture. Could do with a bit more emphasis on all staff, and not just the ones bringing in sales volume.

My days consist of new challenges and new learning. We take pride in providing the best customer service possible, developing new ideas to grow business and manage our time efficiently. This will also include managing our distribution and product manufacturing to meet all stock level requirements.

Our team consists of motivated, hard working, fun and professional people who never hesitate to provide a helping hand, very friendly and welcoming atmosphere. All management level people have an open door policy and are very easily approached.


The hardest part of the job is to come up with new ideas and to innovate everyday within a declining industry. The tobacco industry has never seen tougher times and the hardest and yet most fun part of the job is to make sure we generate business and achieve market leadership regardless of the market conditions.
Pros
Free lunches, health benefits, outdoor and fun activities all year round
Cons
organisational politics

I have worked in a great team, that strived to achieve and implement best practices in each of the procurement areas.
It was a great company to work for, however with manufacturing moving oversees, the procurement function will change scope.

The typical day in the warehouse was well organized and flowed steady.
Could sometimes go wrong through mostly outside influences such as transport breakdowns traffic issues, when these things happen you learn quickly to re adjust plans and think on the hop.

Management though not always agreeable were mostly understanding and would try to be helpful with any issues.

Always had well trained great group of people to work with understood that when things were quiet you could cruise along but when the heat is on it is all in.

The toughest part of this job was coordinating people inside and outside to meet required time slots does not always go smoothly.

There is nothing more enjoyable than the variety you get from all of the above.
Pros
All around great company to work
Cons
Sometimes having to let good people go its never easy.
