Current Employee - Territory Manager

I have been working at Reynolds American full-time for more than a year

Pros

-Decent benefits (health/dental, 401k matching, short term disability, etc),
-Vacation time, company car, gas, and tuition reimbursement
-Flexibility in schedule
-Decent work/life balance

Cons

-No commission
-Need to be very mobile to advance
-Dirty work conditions (due to retail)
-Very redundant

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Try to optimize training and/or create an official training workshop/seminar/class for new TM's. Trust that we are doing the right thing for the business without all the micromanagement.

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

    Pros

    The package is good (pay, car, phone etc) and work can be fun. Most co-workers are really good and promotion is possible (I was promoted after 16 months during a time when promotions were "rare").

    Cons

    Some managers are micromanagers to the extreme. Your work week will never be 40 hours unless you stay a Territory Manager for life. Best candidates not always promoted.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take away relocation as part of promotion and you will finally be able to promote the best talent instead of just the most flexible.

    Former Employee - Territory Manager

    I worked at Reynolds American full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great benefits, Good starting pay, and for the most part great team members

    Cons

    Lots of "equal opportunity" management, promotions take forever at least 18 months, micromanaged, Managers act as private investigators to and will ride your territory w/out you knowing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire the right person for the mgmt positions, and treat your territory managers right they are what drives the company
