Reynolds pays well compared to other companies in this area.

Every couple of years there is a reorganization within the company. They push being innovative but innovative usually turns into a reorganization.

    I have been working at Reynolds American

    Pros

    Significantly above average pay. Great benefits. Located in a low cost of living city.

    Cons

    Industry decline. Uncertain strategic direction of the company. Very impatient senior management leading to constant change in strategic direction. Lots of older conservative people with less tolerance to change

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to be patient and stick with strategic direction for sometime. Also need to be proactive with regards to upcoming legislative changes and possible competitive tactics/strategy.
    Try not to throw away the baby with the bathwater while changing strategic direction

    Pros

    The pay is above average for similar jobs elsewhere and if you make it to a management position the bonuses are awesome.

    Cons

    Everybody knows that working for a tobacco company in a declining industry is not the best, but hey, they pay pretty well. Senior management is more involved in politics than anything else. Most often than not they reward the wrong behavior (politics vs. performance). They just got rid of 40% of the salaried employees in Winston Salem. Sure enough they kept some of the worst managers I've ever seen in my 15 years of professional experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get down to work. Make the tough desicions and look at your consumers and your brands.
