    I have been working at Commonwealth-Altadis full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Used to be a great company, benefits are slowly declining. Unfortunately there just aren't many pro's as the work environment is toxic. Sorry folks, I believe there are no pro's anymore.

    Cons

    A few of the Supervisors and managers at the Reidsville facility are bullies and harassing their employees. Sad part is the HR team sees it and even acknowledges it, but simply allows it. Not a good work environment anymore. As a result, socially and emotionally it's a very unsafe place anymore. Lots of backstabbing since the merger. Is progressively becoming worse and more evident each day. Stay away from this... place!

    Advice to Management

    Put an end to the backstabbing, cut-throat games that are currently happening. It's simply a horrible, horrible place to work anymore. The last few years the reviews and employee survey has mentioned that no one would recommend this place to a friend nor trust the management ... here's the reason why. Now fix it.
