  4. "Nepotism in the Toronto office"

    • Work/Life Balance

    • Senior Management
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Toronto, ON

    I have been working at Philip Morris International full-time

    Pros

    Great benefits to compensate for all the cons.

    Cons

    An overwhelming majority of employees working in the Toronto office have been hired on or promoted due to the fact that they are either a daughter, wife, son of, brother-in-law of another employee. Nepotism rules in this company, and if you are not related to another employee, your chances of getting hired or promoted are very slim.

    Advice to Management

    Give other (non family member) employees a chance at succeeding as well, or change your hiring policies.
