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 Management

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

    Nice benefits, company car, opportunity to advance career with seminars to advance career. Company has respect in market place as their share of market grows annually.

    Not much balance in the work vs. family time. High pressure to meet quarterly goals. Have to be mobile to be promoted.

    Advice to Management

    Need more time during day to set route for next week, complete reports that are due. Ease up on the expectations.
