    Former Employee - Intern in Dayton, OH

    I worked at Reynolds and Reynolds as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Gym is great. Great managers and mentoring all around. The corporate culture is very professional, but, that leads to many loving their job.

    Cons

    It is the most Republican centered company I literally could have ever imagined. So much so that they talked about the coming debt crisis in a company wide address. Fox News on every TV

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep checking in. Invest in the small people.

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

    Pros

    In the department I worked in, the people were great and the pay was pretty good for the type of work. The hours were very flexible and it was always easy to get my supervisor to let me have time off when I needed it for school and family.

    Cons

    The minimum requirement of 15 hours per week gets annoying when you also have school to consider. That requirement is ultimately why I had to leave. Also, even though I'm not a smoker, the company's seemingly vehement prejudice against smokers always seemed unreasonable to me.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The upper management should probably consider relaxing their minimum hours policy. Also, the anti-smoking policy is kind of ridiculous. I've never smoked and I'm not too fond of people smoking around me, but that's what designated outside smoking areas are for.

    Pros

    Company car, decent starting salary, opportunity to travel, the company lets you keep hotel points, rental car rewards, airline miles, etc.

    Cons

    The travel can sometimes be overwhelming, and the work can fluctuate from incredibly boring to way too much to get done in a normal day.

    Pros

    Thirty-one year career with history of promotion within. Since merger in 2008, we have managed to maintain excellent customer focus as well as quality programming and enhancements. Loyalty is rewarded. Training program for Account Managers is second to none.

    Cons

    Based in Dayton, Ohio. Dayton is nice, but.....

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bob Brockmans's core principals just make sense. Every employee should hear him delivery his beliefs and priorities and his logic behind them

    I have been working at Reynolds and Reynolds full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    You get out what you put in at R&R. Hard work, creative thinking and innovation will get you ahead here. They tend to hire recent college grads and promote from within. Virtually every manager, director and exec started on the ground floor and worked their way up.

    Expect to be challenging work everyday. They make and sell top shelf solutions to very demanding customers, so they expect and pay for top shelf talent.

    Cons

    A little conservative culturally. Make sure you wear a tie at HQ.

    I have been working at Reynolds and Reynolds full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Great place to have a career, continuing education. Fantastic support from middle and upper management. Focus on customer experience, great product and services offerings. Have improved my income each year of employment.

    Cons

    Per the sales job description, the job can often be taxing as it is not a 40 hour work week. With experience, I am able to balance fairly well, but from time to time it can be a little overwhelming.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to focus on the development of your people, ask for feedback and implement some of the suggestions.

    I have been working at Reynolds and Reynolds full-time

    Pros

    Reynolds has a great team environment, and provides excellent training for their associates. New associate training teaches you everything you need to know about the automotive industry, and how Reynolds has evolved. There are additional training courses offered quarterly, that help associates grow professionally and learn more about the industry.

    Reynolds is the industry leader, and widely recognized in the automotive industry. Their products, customer support and training are the best in the industry.

    There are additional activities Reynolds offers associates, including an onsite gym, medical center, convenience store and cafeteria all at headquarters. The "work hard, play hard" mentality is shown through the onsite amenities, as well as the sports leagues and volunteer opportunities offered to all associates.

    Cons

    It does take some time to accrue vacation days.
