Virtual trade union of Philip Morris USSR

It's a web site started by a disgruntled former(?) employee of Philip Morris in Kazakhstan. It has a bunch of essays of negative content about the company, as well as the guest book, where former and current employees may vet out their frustrations. It's very funny to read. Apparently, there's a division between blue collars and workers. The essays and a guest book gives an unusual look at the corporate life of Philip Morris in former Soviet union.

Here's an article in Express K about employment contracts of Philip Morris Kazakhstan by Alexandr Kaminsky, a former employee converted to a journalist. The comments are fun to read as usual.

Прикольный сайт. Да и у мужика это все писавшего явно талант есть. Надеюсь он двинул в журналисты, а не в BAT :-)

я думаю Каминский сам этот сайт Дело-Табак и открыл. Он конечно все оч предвзято и однобоко освещает, но с др стороны в принципе он затрагивает реальные проблемы. при полном отсутствии какого-либо критического взгляда на компанию изнутри этот сайт - явление позитивное.
