    Pros

    competitive salary, great benefits, 401k match, company vehicle, work hard / play hard, certification, critical selling skills - The list goes on

    Cons

    Nothing I can think of other than IT issues, as the database runs very slow
    Promotions are a lot less as of late due to little turnover - Actually a positive

    I have been working at Reynolds American

    Pros

    Work environment was ok most of the time

    Cons

    Working in a smaller branch, there was CONSTANT worry of whether or not your job was secure. No encouragement from supervisors to make employees feel secure.
