I have been working at Reynolds American full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Pay is decent for Winston Salem.

Cons

1. Lack of clear vision,
2. Too willing to promote people who are young and inexperienced, and often unqualified for their positions.
3. Continuous degradation of benefits
4. No path for promotion, for most people in the company.
5. Performance review process is flawed.
6. "Succession" planning process is flawed.
7. No opportunity to "apply" for jobs internally.
8. Company places too much emphasis on bringing in talent and almost no importance on retaining talent with often decades of experience.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

1. Consider the opinion of employees, not just new employees.
2. Consider looking at ALL employees for promotion opportunities, not just the new hires/less tenured employees.
3. Stop being myopic in managing the company. Think at least a couple of years out.
4. Offer new opportunities to ALL employees.
5. Revise "succession" planning and employee reviews.
6. Equally value all employees - not just new hires.

    I worked at Reynolds American full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Good pay, benefits. People I worked with were great, fun people that worked hard and were fun to be around.

    Cons

    As described by others, the promotion game is very political. Many of the better performers have been by passed due to politics and favorites (brown-nosers) getting preferred spots. So glad I left, as I hear it is worse than ever. I worked nights, weekends and while on vacation to keep my boss happy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Realize when you hit the streets you are looking at a day that has been totally set up for your appeasement. If you want a real look at your business do something on your own.
