Pros

You receive a pay check.

You receive some benefits, but they are not very good. 401K matching is the best benefit they have.

Cons

They have a management structure that is filled with cronies.

They care little about their employees, which is evident by the low employee morale.

They can't keep good employees, which makes the entire institution suffer. Most departments are understaffed with many open positions.

They require many positions to work after-hours, which interferes with personal lives and they provide little to no reward/compensation for this extra diligence, it's just expected. (Your family will hate this aspect of the company.)

They consistently try to short their employees. For instance, if you work too many hours a week in your position, they will move you to salary to keep your pay down. Or, they will promote you without a pay increase.

They monitor the activities of their employees via a location monitoring system, drug test employees consistently like you are a parolee, and they have fitness exams with skewed measurements that effect the price of your insurance. (I run, workout, watch my diet, and stay in overall good shape, and they said I was overweight when my Body Mass Index and body fat percentage is in a healthy range. What a joke.)

This institution seeks profit at the expense of their employees, as the points above explain.

Advice to Management

Respect your employees.

    Pros

    It is a good place to just "get a job" and gain some corporate experience right after college while you figure out what you want to do.

    Cons

    -No room for advancement
    -Salaries are very low
    -Micro-managing supervisors
    -No vacation time your first year of employment. If you start in January of 2012 you will not receive any vacation until January of 2013.
    -Employee morale is awful
    -They base hiring mostly on scores from pre-employment aptitude testing. They will schedule you to come take a test and say "you may have an interview when your finished." Once you're done, they check your scores and if you passed you will get an interview. If you didn't do so hot, they will send you home and say "you will hear from us in 3-5 business days."

    Advice to Management

    Develop career paths for employees. Raise salary levels to be competitive and not have so much employee turnover.

    Pros

    The people and friendships you make at work
    The average age of employees is much younger than most companies out there right now

    Cons

    The pay
    Deception of compensation and benefits
    Misleading advancement potential
    Inadequate training
    Day to day repetitive tasks that have no substance
    Incredibly high turnover

    Advice to Management

    While Reynolds is a fairly respectible company as far as their software is concerned, the pay, work environment your employees are given and the difficultly of customers steming from an over agressive sales force is just too much. The lies of pay, benefit, and job description is the main thing causing your employees to start searching for a new job as soon as their eyes are opened to what they just got into.
