    I worked at Reynolds American as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    RJRT had a great program for all interns. As an intern I took part in a meaningful project and was able to learn a lot about the tobacco industry.

    Cons

    There were not many downsides to the internship. Summer project was difficult to complete with short duration of internship (10 weeks).

    I have been working at Reynolds American full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Free car, free gas, free insurance, good pay, $9k bonus! Total pay almost $50k w/free car. I am still fairly new but highly recommend staying OUTSIDE OF SALT LAKE CITY! From what I hear this company is awesome, but my manager = not so good; indecisive; try's to micro-manage but fails; if you get the opportunity, take it! Short days, take it easy, just be seen at every visit :)

    Cons

    Simply the roll of the dice and whether you end up with an awesome manager like some that I have heard about; or a not so awesome manager (i.e. SLC, UT = entirely incapable of leading)!

    Advice to Management

    Time for some changes in the Salt Lake City Area. Account Management & Division Management! Highly recommended as I believe the two managers collude against employees (my peers feel the same way)!
