    I have been working at Reynolds American full-time

    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

    The focus of the company was not readily understood by middle management.

    I worked at Reynolds American full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Some very good people work for them. Salary was fair.

    Cons

    Middle management made confusing statements to the sales force like saying they wanted to be the number 1 tobacco company and then listed several companies that while strong brands, were not the number 1 companies in their fields. ie. Starbucks, it's a great company but doesn't sell nearly as much coffee as Dunkin Donuts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote people that understand your message and can clearly communicate it to others. Make sure your people know what your trying to do.
