    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.

    Former Employee - Content Writer in Dayton, OH

    I worked at Reynolds and Reynolds part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    At R&R I was a content writer for their marketing branch called Naked Lime Marketing. Most of the people I worked with were friendly and helpful while others were closed off and unwilling to help out new employees. This job gave me professional writing experience through writing auto blogs for different car dealerships across the country.

    Cons

    A real lack of training, I was thrown into writing content without any actual training and just a piece of paper vaguely explaining what to include in my writing. My position as a part-time writer was advertised as being an internship (look out for the content writing position being listed for both Naked Lime and Reynolds & Reynolds because it is the exact same position) which it wasn't. I had to write 34-38 blogs a week, 200 words a piece, which is like a full-time job when you are also a student. Time off was stingy. I was still attending college while working here part time and my main editor was reluctant to give me any time off for my finals week, yet kept telling me my education was important. The company tends to go after students who are seniors or close to graduating so they can suck them in and guarantees they will be employed after graduating, all while misleading candidates of what the position really entails. The environment does not foster growth or facilitate learning, editors are unnecessarily critical of work and hide behind their computer screens and tend to be confrontational through emails rather than making a phone call or meeting face-to-face = extremely unprofessional. Due to being a student I felt taken advantage of and was making a fraction of what other part-time writers like me were making. Definitely not worth the time investment and I recommend that college grads looking to write for a living seek a company that appreciates their talents and provides an environment conducive of learning.

    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

    - 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
