I have been working at Reynolds American full-time

Pros

Entry level position, many training opportunities. Company car, benefits, work out of home office. Company computer, pay for cell phone and hi speed internet. Work out in the field not in a office. Work independently most of the time.

Cons

Promotion limited based on who likes you and your mobility not your work. Long hours very demanding. Mostly work in retail outlets. Not allowed to think outside the box. Selling tobacco products.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take a look at upper management leadership.

    I have been working at Reynolds American full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Excellent learning opportunities, great pay and benefits, company car and free gas, flexibility

    Cons

    Management should be evaluted closely. The job is wonderful if you don't have a manager that has been at the company their entire life! The manager makes the job, and if you get someone that is invested in seeing you succeed, then you have found gold. If you get an anal manager that chooses to micromanage you, then beware. You may be looking for another job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let employees have the freedom to make decisions without you making them. Lighten up and trust that we know how to do our own job!

    I worked at Reynolds American full-time

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits if you want to live in Winston-Salem, NC. Other companies are matching because RAI continues to reduce benefits except for their executives.

    Cons

    Declining business, poor leadership, trying new ideas tried by the previous management. Throwing ideas against the wall and hope something sticks. Core cigarette business that generated the profits in decline. RAI focusing on smokeless and spit less products that will never generate the profits that the cigarette category previously generated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get advice from the previous RJ Reynolds management, premerger RJRT was number 2 in the market and Brown Williamson was number 3.
