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

Pros

This is a stable company that has had only a few layoffs in the past few years. Benefits, but they are getting worse.

Cons

It is a machine where low level employees, entry to supervisor, are fodder. Everything is geared for the maximum profitability for the company.

Health coverage is backed by the companies dollar, so it is monitored closely and reviewed and factored into an employees total cost and risk to the company. It is also why they have a "no" nicotine policy and perform fitness evaluations that determines an employee's medical insurance costs, where high insurance risk employees are viewed negatively.

No privacy onsite. All of your activities are monitored and logged in reports. The have cameras throughout the premises, a locator service to track employee movements (start & stop time, in-office lunches, out-office lunches, movements throughout the building, etc.), email motoring, phone call logging and monitoring, and back-doors built into PCs for remote access and motoring. These reports are reviewed by direct supervisors and upper management and also used in employee reviews.

Positions have a ceiling for totally pay, including overtime work. Too much overtime in a position would lead to a review an employee work duties. If warranted, an employee is moved to a salaried position to eliminate overtime pay, and after hour work is required in many salary positions. It is also a reason why low level promotions are often given without a pay increase.

Any activity or service that would enhance an employees resume is viewed negatively. This means the company will not fund certifications or other certified training in most cases. It also means they discourage employees from completing higher education and no referrals or letters of recommendations are provided, only dates of employment.

    I worked at Reynolds and Reynolds full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I can't think of very many pros. The pay and benefits are not very good. I did meet some nice coworkers.

    Cons

    This place has a messed up corporate culture. They expect the world with little compensation or respect for employees. They indoctrinate whom they can, usually the young and ignorant, but anybody with any business sense or greater ambition leave this place with a bad taste in their mouth. It's a type of culture that puts the company first and the employees second, or maybe third or forth. I wouldn't even recommend this place to an entry level person.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sell. It is the only way to clean house for major reforms needed to make this place into a decent work environment for its employees.
