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

I have been working at Reynolds American

Pros

RJR had a great work/life balance. You run your territory as if it is your own business. Have the ability to schedule your day based on the need of your own territory.

Cons

In order to be promoted you usually need to be willing to move. This sometimes leads to the right people not being in the right positions.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Promote people based on work experience and ability, not on mobility. The company is doing a better job listening to the employees.

    Pros

    There are a lot of creative and diverse people in the organization. The culture is very unique / eclectic.

    Vacation schedules are easily geared towards promoting work/life balance. Daily responsibilities involve a lot of independence and ability to make your own decisions.

    There are excellent benefits in the Sales positions, including cell phone allowance, company car, decent salary, bonuses, 401k matching.

    Cons

    Some coworkers seemingly were hired out of desperation, are unprofessional, lazy, and feel "entitled".

    There are advancement opportunities, however there are **no** clear-cut rules or policies for determining who is promoted or why.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice to senior management is to recognize that there is some great talent slipping out the door. The company is hiring recent college grads / entry level workforce, but only promoting the ones who are the most attractive, most similar to their immediate supervisor, and those who do not challenge the status quo.

    The most qualified employees are highly sought after and leave the organization due to dissatisfaction with the "promotion" process.
