    I have been working at Reynolds American full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Training and Development of employees is highly regarded. Competitive Salaries and Benefits. Challenging work. Collaboration and Engagement is expected and rewarded. Diversity in Leadership and the workforce.

    Cons

    Organization gets pretty flat above Sr Manager...so beyond that level opportunities are limited. Tobacco industry stigma can affect some workers at times when speaking with family/friends...although its about responsible adult choices and providing the best products in the industry which RAI is continuing to do.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to develop career paths that reward all levels. Perhaps more developmental roles in key positions so we don't lose intellectual property as our workforce ages out.

    I have been working at Reynolds American full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Free car, free gas, free insurance, good pay, $9k bonus! Total pay almost $50k w/free car. I am still fairly new but highly recommend staying OUTSIDE OF SALT LAKE CITY! From what I hear this company is awesome, but my manager = not so good; indecisive; try's to micro-manage but fails; if you get the opportunity, take it! Short days, take it easy, just be seen at every visit :)

    Cons

    Simply the roll of the dice and whether you end up with an awesome manager like some that I have heard about; or a not so awesome manager (i.e. SLC, UT = entirely incapable of leading)!

    Advice to Management

    Time for some changes in the Salt Lake City Area. Account Management & Division Management! Highly recommended as I believe the two managers collude against employees (my peers feel the same way)!

    Pros

    As long as you work hard and stay focused on the overall goals you will be rewarded. Company fully invests in talent and those willing to work hard.

    Cons

    Very competitive environment, you have to wait your turn in some instances where there is a surplus of talent and limited openings at the next level

    Advice to Management

    Create mid-level positions or offer projects to those looking to elevate there skill set to ease the burden of wait time.

    I have been working at Reynolds American full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Compensation is excellent for entry-level (new-hires get $43,000 base pay plus performance based annual bonus, very nice company car and free gas, company matching 401k, reimbursements for cell-phone and internet). The company invests heavily into the training and development of skills in their employees. The skills they want you to use may seem pointless due to the incompetence of the people you deal with on a day to day basis at the Territory Manager position, but they are preparing you for the next level when you are in control of large accounts of 20+ stores. I have seen some comments that there is no advancement opportunities or you must "play the corporate game" in order to be promoted, simply not true. You have to be personable and apply the skills that they spend so much money teaching you, welcome to real-life. Flexible with work hours and you plan your own week. 17 days paid vacation upon hire and free to use them whenever you want (no black-out dates). Job security is great. Very laid back culture with the company and they know how to have fun, work hard-play hard culture.

    Cons

    Work can become monotonous after you get your territory in order. Dealing with employees of convenience stores is not the most prestigious job, but again, you must use "people" skills to get what you need.

    Advice to Management

    Do not move new-hires across the country, try to keep them more local to their home cities, even regional relocations would be better.

    Pros

    competitive salary, great benefits, 401k match, company vehicle, work hard / play hard, certification, critical selling skills - The list goes on

    Cons

    Nothing I can think of other than IT issues, as the database runs very slow Promotions are a lot less as of late due to little turnover - Actually a positive

    Advice to Management

    Continue driving the coaching culture
