    Pros

    Great people to work with and product line is top in most categories. Quality products and pricing structure was always competitive.

    Cons

    Privately held company, EBITDA goals were always out of reach, Management is complacent and all are "yes" men. Sad to see some of the people that were let go.

    Micro-management "culture"

    I have been working at Reynolds Consumer Products

    Pros

    Peers (at the "manager"/low level) are good to work with. Talent at that level is good, lots of good external experience.

    Cons

    Lack of culture and lack of desire from leadership (top level) to build a culture. Morale is bad because employees are not treated with respect. There is way too much micro-management from top down. Not allowed to perform functions/tasks that are outlined in job descriptions as stated (can't make even the smallest of decisions without top management input and full involvement). Be careful when reading a job description - things may not always be as they seem! If you're looking for a place to grow, professionally, this is not the place.

    Pros

    The one star is for a competitive base salary (at least in marketing), solid general mgt experience for brand managers, and decent co-workers ....

    Cons

    ... the missing stars are for everything else. This has to be one of the worst companies to work for in terms of culture and nature of work.
    Every process is broken, and manual ... and management has no desire to improve. Thus, constantly fighting fires and feeling like you're doing everyone else's job as a marketer. That's why the general management training is so good - you have to do everything because half of your x-functional team is lost ... Either because the tools they are using are archaic, or they're just really lost.
    Brand management is loosely defined around here. It's really product management, and if you hang around too long, you'll lose any type of brand savvy you came in with.
    This place is owned by a private equity firm that doesn't understand the CPG world, and has senior leadership who also either has no clue, or really doesn't care. No one above the director level in marketing has a classical CPG background, so giving product away via deep discounting is considered a robust consumer marketing strategy. This would be a great private label company.
    And if not liking your job is not enough, the culture will beat you down. No jeans Friday, telecommuting, summer hours... Too progressive.

    Pros

    Not really anything good. They want more for less.

    Cons

    Management is constantly looking to see who they can fire. You have to have eyes in the back of your head.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat employees with respect. Pay decent wage. Fast foods pays more.

    Pros

    Good people to work with, challenging and rewarding work. Desire to develop innovative solutions. Goal oriented and recognition

    Cons

    Tough industry. Compensation is less that it should be for the positions. Too much politics for the size it is. Worked for much larger companies with half the politics. There are some arrogant people and in lead roles that make it hard for folks just trying to do the right things

    Pros

    RCP has a dynamic environment and offers decent pay. They have two dominant and well known brands, Hefty and Reynolds Wrap.

    Cons

    No room for growth, incompetent ownership group, leaders in at least two functional areas know little about their role. Leadership does not listen to the employees. Instead they talk down to them.

    Low-cost employee perks like casual Friday are handed out as rewards if that month the company just happens to make its numbers. If you ask for other things, like summer hours, you are scolded in front of an all-employee meeting.
