Wasted a year of my life

ConsAccount Manager Trainees are used to do all the work and are disposable, while the Account Manager reap the awards of the Trainee's hard work.

Advice to Senior ManagementNo point they are stuck in their ways

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Okay place to earn a paycheck

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Reynolds and Reynolds

ProsConsistently high raises, easy work environment. Organization of outside work activities were fun and helped build "teams spirit".

ConsExtremely low starting pay for the industry, not many opportunities to learn on the job or be given new tasks.

Advice to Senior ManagementLet employees learn new things and hone their skills.

Good starting place if you have no experience. Don't expect to be paid like your peers.

IT Technician (Former Employee)
Houston, TX

I worked at Reynolds and Reynolds full-time for more than 8 years

ProsVery efficient business, so it will be there for the long haul. Very young workforce, so tons of socializing opportunities, like minded colleagues. Overall good people, met a lot of great people working there. Promote from within (because they won't pay what experienced people want), but it usually leads to very competent teams until they leave.

ConsMonetary compensation way below average. Decisions driven by cost above all else. Move to proprietary systems limits any IT professionals' future career.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

College Station, TX

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

ProsThe other people working there were great.

Great learning experience

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
College Station, TX

I worked at Reynolds and Reynolds part-time for more than a year

ProsWorking at Reynolds and Reynolds taught me a great deal about hard work and time management. My schedule was flexible and they worked around my school hours.

ConsAs a part time worker I was required to work at least 20 hours a week. This was difficult at times since I was also a full time student.

Beware...

Project Manager (Former Employee)
Dayton, OH

I worked at Reynolds and Reynolds full-time for more than 5 years

ProsMatching 401k if you stay for 2 years, decent entry level pay, learn how to talk to customers and how not to manage people.

ConsVPs and above are all clueless yes men and they in turn only promote and notice yes men below them while pushing all their work onto those that actually deserve the position they hold. This is a company that is built to only say yes to the Owner and he has done everything he can to make it that way.
This directly affects everyone's work habits and mannerisms, to the point that no one is able to think for themselves or make a decision due to fear of their job and doing so even if it is the right move will be met with opposition and little upward mobility.

Advice to Senior ManagementListen to the crap that comes out of your own mouth's and learn to make decisions without having to bother the next level you can that will make one.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Its a Job not a Career

Software Developer (ERA DMS) (Current Employee)
Kettering, OH

I have been working at Reynolds and Reynolds full-time for more than 3 years

ProsAs an ERA developer there are almost no pros.
The work is copy paste...if you consider that a pro.
The bourgeoisie are extremely nice and friendly.

ConsManagement above supervisors are daft - Typing with two fingers, inability to comprehend concepts such as runtime; space complexity; and parallel programming.
Favoritism towards Houston Development
Languages: COBOL (proprietary), Pick Basic

Advice to Senior ManagementUse a more modern language for your software you would get less turnover and better morale.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

It had its ups and downs

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
College Station, TX

I worked at Reynolds and Reynolds full-time for more than 5 years

ProsFlexible schedule, cafeteria, gym, and sports leagues.

ConsA majority of management doesn't appear to care for the people that works for them or seem like they really like their jobs, very rarely any pay increases, any type of incentives such as monthly birthday parties were taken away.

Advice to Senior ManagementShow interest in the people that work for you and treat the workers that deserve it with respect or the incredibly high turnover rate will continue.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Accounting Internship

Accounting Intern (Former Employee)
Houston, TX

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

ProsStaff was very helpful in educating about process and procedures. There is a real opportunity to get involved with current projects that may require some skill rather than having to do menial tasks the whole summer.

ConsThe work environment is not conducive to success or aspirations.

Advice to Senior ManagementShow more interest for employee well-being.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
