I worked at Reynolds American full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

The pay and benefits are great, no doubt about that. While in the field it's a great company in that you get a company car and some autonomy/less micro-management.

Cons

In the Home Office there are constant political games and backstabbing going on. All the managers are jockeying for position and the rest of the workers are just trying to hang on. There are CONSTANT changes in what Senior Management claims they are trying to do and, in reality, they usually have no idea as to what is going on below them. The moral is exceptionally bad and the chances for promotion are very, very poor unless you become a favourite of some manager, look good, are young (new grad preferably)...and preferably all of the above.
There is little, if any, respect for Senior Management as they have no idea at all just how poor the moral is or how hopeless a great many of the employees actually feel.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pay attention to what is happening in your own company instead of just focusing on your next six or seven figure bonus.

    Tobacco industry will continue to consolidate sales force due to declining industry and need to cut expenses.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Push back to Senior Level management and down focus on things that don't matter.

    Pros

    Benefits are good, pay is good, office is beautiful, co-workers at my level are great.

    Cons

    Since 2007 this company has gone downhill since RJRT has come thru the doors. The transition of duties and jobs to RJRT in North Carolina have left many people that made this company what it is today without jobs. It is all about the all mighty dollar and trying to bring Marlboro down. There is a tremendous amount of favoritism, and if you are in the right crowd, you will do nothing wrong, get good raises, take long lunches, and basically come and go as you please on work hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lead by example, take a look at yourselves before judging other people. Get to know your team and make discussions based on facts instead of hear say. ELT- step up to the plate and quit sugar coating everything. When is the next severance package going to be offered? I will be taking it.
