    I have been working at Reynolds and Reynolds

    Pros

    Garner extensive experience working with customers and problem-solving. As an entry-level associate you will gain a lot of the experience you need to explore employment opportunities later.

    Cons

    Company does not treat you like a human being, you are a resource to be allocated and nothing more. You will not feel like your work is appreciated outside of your direct supervisor. The business style is very conservative and old-world, they take pride in going against contemporary research which shows that treating your employees well will increase productivity. They cannot imagine a world where the working in the office is a relaxed atmosphere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat employees like human beings, loosen the ties in the office, stop living in the 1970's.

    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.

    I worked at Reynolds and Reynolds full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    - Well established company in the automotive industry
    - Decent starting base salary in sales
    - Most of the people you will start with are young and ambitious

    Cons

    - Well established unfortunately does not translate to well respected
    - Private company with no HR department (seriously). Gossip and inter-office drama is constantly present
    - Promotions within sales happen very few and far between
    - Training is WAY too long

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Figure out a business structure and strategy and stick to it
    - Stronger mentorship program is a must

    I have been working at Reynolds and Reynolds

    Pros

    Reynolds is a place that gave a student straight out of college the chance to gain some experience, confidence, and knowledge.

    Cons

    Very unsupportive company. Implementation specialists are often left hanging in the field. No synergy between departments. Pay is far below that of competitors.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop being ok with the level of turn around you are experiencing. Increase pay and quality of employment and you will keep experienced employees around longer which I assure you will improve customer satisfaction.

    I worked at Reynolds and Reynolds part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Worked well with college hours
    Not too difficult work
    Rest of the workers near the same age (mostly college students)
    Not strict about time off
    Decent hourly pay for the work

    Cons

    Upper Management is a bit lacking
    Tend to make changes a lot to dumb rules
    Work can sometimes be slow and tedious when there isn't much to do
    Like one person said, they don't really care much about the young hires since they are so easily replaced
