I have been working at Reynolds American

Pros

Great flexibility, company car, Pays for phone and internet bills, company credit card, Salary is pretty decent, co workers are prett friendly

Cons

no 8 to 5 job, must continuously check emails and be willing to burn the midnight oil to get things done, Senior management is confused on what they want to do especially since FDA regulation is looming, no real direction and you always get this "sneaky old tobacco tricks" when working for them . Too many brands and the tobacco industry is declining every year. Lots of regulation coming, speculation of downsizing to come in the future

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stick to one plan of action, care about employees more, and understand that the tobacco industry has an unfavorable image among young people and people just dont use tobacco like they used to.

    Pros

    Great benefits and environment. Company car for personal use, insurance paid for, gas paid for, internet and 1/2 of cell phone paid for. Matching 401k up to 6%.

    Cons

    promotions a secretive and vacancies are never announced. Do not look to move up for a very long time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not move people across the country. Let people have the ability to buy vacation time. Announce vacancies as opposed to secret selections.

    Pros

    The company offers strong leadership development, comprehensive hands on training. There is ample opportunity for career advancement for those willing to work hard and demonstrate success in established leadership dimensions. Many perks - company car, gas paid, flexible work schedules, ownership of territory.

    Cons

    The salary paid in urban areas is not ideal for cost of living. Extra effort could be given to better adjust for high cost areas. The company also hangs on to unproductive members of the workforce longer than necessary - quick elimination of the those unwilling to demonstrate potential would better serve the entire team.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to focus on the dimensions of a good leader and bringing those characteristics to the workforce with new employment.
