Decent place to get started, but get out once you have experience

Pros

This is a decent place for someone fresh out of school looking for a first career. In the IT department, you can move up to an Engineering-level position pretty quickly if you work hard.

The people here are mostly nice and the company does a pretty good job of holding social events where you can meet people and make friends. Lots of young people working here, so that's a plus too, if you're young as well.

Cons

Once you get a little bit of experience there, its time to get out and find a new job. They don't do a good job of training and developing their Engineering-level IT personnel. Training budget is non-existent.

Compensation is TERRIBLE. I cannot stress that enough. You get really pitiful raises, even if you are promoted time and time again (as I have been). I'd say for an Engineer-level IT employee, compensation is about 40-50% below the industry average.

IT management is competent and reasonable, but upper-management demands cost reductions at any price. Be prepared to work with outdated, second-rate technology.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take care of your people better. Your company is constantly losing its most talented people because they're that are quickest to realize how poorly they are being treated/compensated.

    Pros

    Reynolds is a great company that offers plenty of benefits to their employees.
    - Good starting pay
    -Will hire entry level job seekers regardless of education background. They do prefer college educated however.
    -Fantastic training program. Will teach you everything you need to know to do your job well.
    -Medical benefits are very affordable.
    -401k company matching begins on day 1. Reynolds matches 100% of your contribution. up to 6% of your net pay
    -On sight fitness center and cafeteria with more food options you could ever need.
    - There is plenty of opportunities to exceed expectations by working overtime and taking on extra duties to impress your superiors and earn a raise.
    -You have the opportunity to increase your pay multiple times per year if you put in the extra effort.

    Cons

    - My biggest complait is the lack of mobility I have at my job. Depending on what position you are hired for you may be sitting in a cubicle in front of a computer all day. However there are other jobs at Reynolds that do not ask this of you.
    -Another downside is I don't see how the experience working for Reynolds will help you during future job searches if you dont want to stay in the Software/hardware area.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing in terms of managing and training people as you guys do a great job with that. Although if you wish to retain more talent you should probably raise your salaries.
