    Pros

    For New Mexico the pay is good. Benefits are alright. Co-workers are the best part. VP is good. President is the best but a figurehead. Tobacco is the very best. There are some very talented people working in this company.

    Cons

    Little trust in upper managment no matter how they try to dress it up. Politics are despicable. Watch out for the overly ambitious but mediocre talent judging others and holding your fate in their hands but not all are like that. some very intelligent people also hold your fate in their hands. But lots of Ego-driven and obsessed with heirarchy. Some real micro-managers. Not enough great workers get promoted. Why? Not from RJR? Not able to relocate? Aren't BFFs with certain people? Not the Reynolds style? So many of the employees are tyring to figure out how they can get out without losing everything.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think of the entire company as one big team instead of ELT, MLT and then the peons. Bring us all together. Understand the true meaning of transparency. Support genuine talent development. TEAM TEAM TEAM

    Pros

    The benefits are reasonably good, although the employee's share is high. The physical environment i.e., workspace is nice and relatively new.

    Cons

    The people who run this organization are not human. They promote their "favorites" and you can be certain that the least qualified person who is a 'favorite' is the person who will be, and is, promoted. All communcations from management are written in corporate speak, you never understand what they are saying. Management does not follow the "core principles" of the organization, they make a big deal of following the core principles posted on the RAI website, but management are the worst offenders in terms of treating employees with disrespect and unfairly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop with all the corporate B.S. - this organization is on an orgy of downsizing. Basically every 2 years they cut another 10% of the work force.
