    Why isn't there a negative button?

    Territory Manager (Current Employee)

    Pros- Good Salary and Benefits
    - Company Car available for personal use

    Cons- Zero work / life balance
    - Very little opportunity for advancement
    - Overall company is a popularity contest and if you aren't connected or perceived to be, your ratings, salary, and possible advancement is affected
    - VERY poor leadership

    Advice to Senior Management- Get a clue! The company has a lot of hard working / loyal employees who are being treated VERY unfairly everyday!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Get ready for a professional life of "pledging." That means, like when you are pledging, anything you do is wrong!

    Senior Division Manager (Current Employee)

    ProsAbove average pay and benefits.

    ConsThe Succession process deeming promotions is totally political and rigged.

    Advice to Senior ManagementUpper management has wrecked a company that used to promote high performers and its success showed. Now, you rig promotion opportunities and you are left with a bunch of incompetent brown nosers who will sink the RJ Reynolds ship. Dan Delen and BAT are great; however, the Senior Leadership Team below Dan needs to be completely thrown out before the damage to RJR is permanent. Go back to a seniority / high performance promotion model and toss out the political shell game. Then, RJR will have competent, high-performing leaders.
