Pros

RAI Services Company provides excellent compensation and benefits.

Cons

RAISC only wants employees who are certified in their field and let employees with 20+ years of experience go.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Many years of experience and loyalty to the company are leaving the company. New employees who are hired do not possess the loyalty and dedication of the long time employees. This company will end up with more "chiefs" than "indians" and no loyalty and dedication it once had. The newer employees do not have a reason to remain with the company as the salaries are much lower now than in the past. Management is more task oriented than people oriented. This company used to be a great company to work for, and the culture has changed to the point where each employee is looking to "step on the toes" of the other employee to get ahead.

    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!
