    Current Employee - Territory Manager III

    I have been working at Reynolds American

    Pros

    The benefits are outstanding. We are in a time where employers are taking them away and RJ Reynolds still have 401k match, short & long term disability, company car, cell phone and internet paid monthly

    Cons

    Very dynamic industry so the compass changes constantly

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When first starting work really hard to shine fast, and then your career will coast. If you do not have a supportive manager you will go no where, so transfer as soon as you are able.

    working for rj reynolds

    Current Employee - Account Manager

    I have been working at Reynolds American

    Pros

    If you are working for a supervisor who truly is an excellent coach, it can be great. Many nice people work for rj reynolds. The president Susan Ivy as well as many of the other higher ups are very nice. the working culture is much better in the mid-west and the western united states.
    company car, phone allowance, internet allowance is all included. You will learn a lot as far as sales go. If you can sell tobacco, other companies figure you can sell anything.

    Cons

    Your job performance is based soley on whomever is your supervisor/coach. Had numerous fantastic bosses. Had two horrible bosses. One just didn't teach anything, the other took my ideas for business plans and said they were his/her own. Bullied, threatened, and sabatoged every aspect of my career. The problem is there is no one to back you because you are basically on your own. So beware if you get a bad boss immediately contact HR.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There needs to be a better way to evaluate employee performance. sitting through the process makes me sick to my stomach. I observe managers throwing excellent employees under the bus to make themselves look better. all territory reps, account managers, key account managers, etc should have to ask at least three people to evaluate them as part of the performance based bonus . Rj reynolds is losing and will continue to lose excellent key people due to some really poor managers. No one should be written up before HR contacts them to get their side of the story.
