A member of TOBACCO REVIEWS WEB FORUM shared some thoughts about Liggett & Myers Tobacco Company - Good Old Summer-Time: "The mildly savory, rugged Virginias provide a lot of tarts and tangy citrus, plenty of hay, straw and grass, some sugar, toasted bread, floralness, mild spice, small hints of tangy darker fruit, and light earth, acidity, and wood. The toasted, earthy, woody, nutty, mildly sour burley plays a small role. There is a small smoky note that may come from the processing or possibly the aging process as this sample was made in 1945. The strength, nic-hit, and taste levels are media. Won’t bite or get harsh, but it does sport a few rough edges. Being a thin shag cut, it burns rather quickly, and a tad warm with a very consistent, richly sweet and savory, rugged flavor that translates to the short-lived, pleasant after taste. The room note is a step stronger. Barely leaves any dampness in the bowl, and hardly requires any relights. An all-day, mildly complex smoke that has a little body. Can be used for cigarettes and according to the tin, chewing, too. Don’t think I’ll try that"

Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says"This box isn't big enough. But let's start with every minute of your life is micro managed. You are CONSTANTLY hanging for your life on ladders, out in the elements. A lot of overnights. A lot of overnights. A lot of overnights. Management is arrogant about there less than 1% market share and force you to burn relationships. Management is also very unethical and will tell you that you are not allowed having a personal life. This company is not for millennial's. No opportunity for advancement."

Former Employee - RSR says"Just a dead-end job. The driving required is absurd, some days I would put in 3-4 hundred miles. Your job consisted of replacing old cigarette signs with new cigarette signs. The brand they sell is so low grade that it's like pulling teeth to get merchants just to try the tobacco. Worked in Southern New England so I too had the pleasure (not) of working with the crusty old man, what a horrible boss!"
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says"Travel is long, management is lacking in understanding it's team members, no team training or team building. Work-life balance is an extremely difficult task with workload. Tough working for the smallest tobacco company...customers recognize this organization as "the bottom of the barrel". Account coverage is limited."

CONFIDENTIAL (Former Employee) says"The management team has some good folks there, and they have some really poor management types acting like they can't be smelled a mile away in higher up positions. They give you a job description, then immediately throw you into a different job without the pay. Really glad we went our separate ways. The people running the company keep the CEO in the dark about how horrible they are running their business.BagelsZero Career Advancement unless someone dies."

Machine Engineer (Current Employee) says"I enjoyed working hear for a while but , then I found out that what was promised by the company never happened. Very hot working conditions and the management was very racial with the employees. If you were low on the totem pole as far as seniority, then you had a long wait to be promoted. The only thing good their was the money.Cafeteria on sitehot working condition, very racial toward its employees"
Payroll Coordinator (Current Employee) says"A typical workday consist of processing payroll, and reporting. I learn mostly from reading and going to APA seminars and Congress. Managment is okay. I really feel that they need to attend classes to become modernized with how management really works. The workplace culture here is very laid back.

Analyst (Former Employee) says"Nice office environment. Not much room for promotion, but there are opportunities to increase your skill set. Management is somewhat "old-school" in their approach. Good pay and benefits. Minimal diversity in management and executive positions."
