    Pros

    Good Autonomy balance, great people who are passionate about their work and your professional growth. Company culture is family like and everyone is happy on the job. Brilliant internship experience.

    Cons

    Job is difficult because of the industry regulations but it makes your job challenging which keeps you on your toes.

    Advice to Management

    It's a flat organization so options to move up are extremely limited. More opportunities to move at least sideways would be good.

    Pros

    Great creer outlook. It is great to work for a comapny that is willing to invest so much money in your development by leting you take development roles and sending you to great trainings

    Cons

    Field training could get REALLY boring, but you have to realize you need to know the field before entering senior management...

    Advice to Management

    Communicate more aggressively our migration strategy, we need people to be aware of our efforts to bring newer and better products to the market place

    Pros

    The company offers strong leadership development, comprehensive hands on training. There is ample opportunity for career advancement for those willing to work hard and demonstrate success in established leadership dimensions. Many perks - company car, gas paid, flexible work schedules, ownership of territory.

    Cons

    The salary paid in urban areas is not ideal for cost of living. Extra effort could be given to better adjust for high cost areas. The company also hangs on to unproductive members of the workforce longer than necessary - quick elimination of the those unwilling to demonstrate potential would better serve the entire team.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to focus on the dimensions of a good leader and bringing those characteristics to the workforce with new employment.

    Pros

    Great pay, flexible schedule, lots of perks, benefits are great... Company car, merit increases/bonuses, 401K match + enhancements, work out of your home, cell and internet expenses, etc... Open communication with management. Always learning something new about strategy and marketing. Management will always back you up on decisions made in the field. Management gives you a lot of creative freedom and executive power over your territory. As long as you have the ability to quickly adjust and embrace change, you will do well at RJRT. This is a job you have to be passionate and motivated about.

    Cons

    There are times when the work load can seem overwhelming. This is not an 8-5 job. There are some employees who linger in 'transition' positions until retirement. This disables the ability for entry-level/TM's to be promoted to management as quickly/easily as initially suggested by senior management. This limits the ability for the company to properly groom the more abitious and motivated youth they so strongly recruit to eventually 'run the company!'

    Advice to Management

    Be more realistic when suggesting a time frame for promotion. Be sure the expectations of your reps is more clearly stated.
