    I worked at Reynolds and Reynolds full-time

    Pros

    Co-workers were a younger group of people, so it was easy to adapt when moving to their head quarters, which was in Houston.

    Cons

    Management would send you out on assignments with no information of what you were doing, or who you needed to talk to to complete your assignment.

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

    Pros

    They have some very nice, dedicated people at this company. It is easy to fit in.

    Cons

    The compensation is not competitive at all. The projects and products that you work on in the Web Support department do not carry over to other companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest more in your employees so your turnover rate won't be so high.

    Pros

    Fitness oriented, vacation time, opportunity

    Cons

    Severe micro managed, since the takeover in 2006 became too regulated in your personal life. Anti motorcycle

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go back to the way things were ran in the early to mid 2000s. Become more friendly to employees with Auto Dealer experience

    I worked at Reynolds and Reynolds as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Lot of professional development opportunities, Great gym access, fun intern events. All the other interns were great to work with!

    Cons

    No direction from supervisor, Very low pay, It was the exact same tasks every week for three months. You had to sit in your cubicle for 8 hours a day, and it was a typical boring office job. Not much room for advancement, from what I could tell.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make your employees feel valued, and not like they are just there to do all of the things that you didn't want to do.

    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.

    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.

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