    I worked at Reynolds American full-time

    Pros

    Interesting place to try to find a way to fit in with insane amounts of governmental regulations to stop you from doing your job. Always keeping you on your toes.

    Cons

    Too many layoffs. Over the last 5 years, the company has shrunk so much that people are overloaded. Additionally, IT is just inundated with work at all times, and there is never a chance to rest. You'll often work way too many hours and never get promoted for your efforts. Then, after all you've given up for the company, you'll be booted because they need to cut more jobs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop laying people off so you can take other stupid risks like buying companies that produce products to help your consumers stop using your product.

    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
