Former Employee - Territory Manager in Washington, DC
Former Employee - Territory Manager in Washington, DC

I worked at Reynolds American full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Nice benefits, good consumer goods packaging training.
Company has a premium product that sells. Territory Managers are backbone of company.

Cons

Deceitful managers that overwork employees. Territory Managers are responsible for visiting 600 accounts per quarter leaving very little time for personal life after spending an hour per night after sales calls to check email and company related chores.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Ease up on the expectations of TMs. Make goals realistic for employees. Trust Territory Managers to do the job they were hired for as trust works both ways and you have lost it all from your Territory Managers

    Current Employee - Territory Manager III
    Current Employee - Territory Manager III

    I have been working at Reynolds American full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexibility, Company Car, and Okay salary once you reach TM III. Great opportunities to meet people throughout the company at national meetings. The company spares know expense at national meetings.

    Cons

    The biggest Con is the incompetent DM's they have managing you. In order to grow as an individual you need managers that will coach you to be your best. Instead these DM's are too busy covering their butts that they micro-manage and lose focus of the company culture. This company has limited advancement opportunities and its difficult to live a comfortable lifestyle with the compensation provide depending on your assignment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start coaching employees to advance within their desired area and stop micro managing. This is tobacco not rocket science!
