    I have been working at Reynolds and Reynolds as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Very kind to interns. Learn how to use new software. On the Job training. Fun potlucks. Dress policy is not too strict for interns.

    Cons

    Sometimes things can get backed up and you are working on many things simultaneously. Hard to say anything as I only did intern work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep being fantastic and interacting with the interns.

    Weird "recruiting process" all the way around... a disrespectful waste of time

    Current Employee - Graphic Designer in Houston, TX
    Current Employee - Graphic Designer in Houston, TX

    I have been working at Reynolds and Reynolds

    Pros

    Nice building. Strange that a place that does advertising campaigns for dealerships doesn't have any examples in their lobby.

    Cons

    They ran ads for a GRAPHIC DESIGNER. I filled out the on-line application. The contacted me, put me through an hour on-line intelligence test for the better part of an hour, then a second one at their establishment. Nothing in their testing had anything to do with any of the applications or typical problems encountered in this arena... non-sequitur.
    I have close to 30 years of experience in all areas of graphics for printing and web.
    I saw lots of people with their portfolios with them. There was no interviewing taking place. It came off like some kind of oddball NSA experiment. I sincerely doubt they had any jobs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You are wasting a lot of people's time and good will.

    Pros

    The only good thing about working here are the fellow coworkers and the cookies in the lunch room. Everyone here collectively agrees that this place sucks the life out of you, and makes you wish you were hit by a bus instead of going to work.

    Cons

    Training is a joke - all classes and no hands on training, then they throw 50-80 accounts at you unannounced and expect you to be perfect at doing your job. The pay is nothing so you're broke all the time, the benefits are fluffed up, supervisors treat you like children, and yes, they only promote from within, but I wouldn't advise anyone to stay here long enough for that to happen. There aren't even any freakin' windows in the Naked Lime office!! It was previously a warehouse, so you walk in and are immediately depressed. How a person stays sane here I have no idea. Also, for a company that specializes in technology (for car dealerships) their own programs are the most ineffective tools ever and constantly cause problems. It got to the point where we attempted to warn new trainees about how awful it truly was. In conclusion, if you'd like to spend every day in a meaningless, soul sucking job that makes you want to cry under you desk, and causes anger and alcohol issues then feel free to apply. But don't say you weren't warned.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    For all the BS your employees put up with you need to pay them more. And it wouldn't kill you to add a window or two to the Naked Lime office. Seriously. I couldn't even tell there was a thunderstorm until I walked outside.
