What I value about the company is primarily its stability and its capability to value its employees.
With the shift in position I received more responsibilities and today I get complex projects that I’m capable of leading on my own.
At work, I can combine my two passions, traveling and meeting new people.
The origin of the company stretches to the year 1847 when the British entrepreneur Philip Morris opened his own small stall on Bond Street. After Morris’ death, the business was taken over by his wife and brother, who turned it into a strong trading company. In its time, the firm was a court supplier of King Edward VII. Enjoying one’s favorite tobacco brand is no longer the privilege of kings. The company today exports its products to over 180 countries around the world.
Philip Morris believes in a smoke-free future, and the company is undertaking several steps leading to the realization of this vision. Philip Morris constantly develops new products, which, in the future, could replace cigarettes altogether for many users. Such products may eventually reduce the risk not only to the user but to his surroundings as well.
Philip Morris does not let anyone sit in the same chair for too long. The company is full of genuinely talented people, and it helps them move forward. Philip Morris is more than happy to welcome all talents to work in Prague, but also in Kutná Hora, which is also a really great place to gain a lot of experience. The company regularly organizes a talent pool during which every employee’s work and direction are assessed, and the employee is then asked in which direction he would like to go. The benefits of working with Philip Morris are not only the usual ones, but they include the opportunity to work abroad and find out how the company’s business works anywhere in the world. And the company CEO is living proof of that.
