Why Vinataba - Philip Morris?
Philip Morris International Inc. (PMI) is the leading international tobacco company, with six of the world’s top 15 international brands, including Marlboro, the number one cigarette brand worldwide. PMI’s products are sold in more than 180 markets. In 2014, the company held an estimated 15.6% share of the total international cigarette market outside of the U.S., or 28.6% excluding the People’s Republic of China and the U.S. For more information, see: www.pmi.com.
Marlboro cigarettes have been in Vietnam since 1994 and since January 2011 they have been manufactured under a sub-licensing agreement between PM Global Brands Inc. and Vinataba - Philip Morris Limited (VPM). Our goals are to provide high quality and innovative products to adult smokers, generate superior returns for shareholders, and reduce the harm caused by smoking while operating our business sustainably and with integrity.
All this can only be continued with our ability to attract, motivate and retain the best talent. We need to offer the best employment experience to current and potential employees. To have the right people with the right skills at the right time will play a critical role in our continued success – they will help shape our success and the future of this industry.
You might think, “Why would I work for tobacco?” Well, that's a fair question and something most of our employees thought initially too. There are all sorts of rumors out there, such as "you have to smoke in order to join us" or "the tobacco industry will not last". Of course, none of this is true. Many of our employees are non-smokers and we would never encourage them to start. At the same time, we are at the forefront of investing in the development of groundbreaking products. Isn't that exciting? We think so. That's why we always try our best to create a work environment that gets the best out of you and your colleagues while having fun together. Now you have it! There is more to PMI than meets the eye. If you come into one of our offices or meet our people, you will quickly realize that PMI is one of the best employers out there. Here, everyone can make a difference and build phenomenal careers.

Kim Hoa‘s story: “You’ll find employees like us kicking back at many happy hours. Everyone, including our bosses, can sit in a cubicle in our open and colorful office space. We love our pantry where coffee, tea, juice and milk with snacks are daily available; where we have lunch together; where we enjoy conversations during break-time. We love our kid-zone where children are taken care of when their parents are held up at work. We love the way the office is organized. But more importantly, we love the people and the culture here, where we, no matter who we are, employers or employees, are much appreciated and motivated every day for our development.”

National Commercial Conference (NCC):
Linh Thiện‘s story: “As a newly-recruited member of the company, I felt so much bonded and engaged with the culture here after National Commercial Conference (NCC) last May. When it comes to work, this is a truly target-and-achievement-driven organization. But when it comes to hanging out, we freely throw ourselves out among one another and enjoy ourselves to the fullest. I was surprised at how the management team of such a big corporation could be so friendly and open.”
