    Pros

    Reynolds and Reynolds is one of the few companies that is willing to take recent college graduates with little to no experience. They train their employees well and give them the tools that they need to succeed in the future. The benefits are great and so is the company culture. I would definitely recommend Reynolds to anyone that is looking to start off on a career with a reputable company.

    Cons

    Some people don't like the non-smoking rule ,but as a non-smoker, I really don't mind. It helps to keep the insurance costs down.

    Pros

    A cafeteria downstairs so breakfast and lunch were always easy to get.

    Cons

    Full time employees with families and mortgage payments once went 3 years without raises, even after working through several periods where overtime was mandatory.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too many chiefs, not enough Indians. The management has no clue what's going on at any tier below their own, therefore they make decisions based on what they THINK should be done, without actually analyzing the real situation and figuring out the best solution.

    Pros

    Steady, reliable income. No random layoffs and you don't have to fear being fired unless you don't perform your job duties. Good management in the department I worked in, Naked Lime Marketing. They are good at what they do, are knowledgable, and care about their team members.

    Cons

    Pay is below average, but they are bi-annual performance reviews and if you perform well, you can get a raise. Also, in my department, they have certifications you can take to increase your salary. I earned over $4,000 onto my salary from certifications.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to department managers.

    Pros

    I've been working at Reynolds for a year now and have been surrounded by supportive and kind employees. Reynolds also does not skimp on giving you a quality product to sell and great training for anyone not familiar with the automotive industry.

    Cons

    The culture of the company is not for everyone and you'll have to jump through a few hoops to get used to your job.

    young work force so overall business knowledge is lower but Reynolds has many internal programs to help build that knowledge

    Pros

    Great people, friendly atmosphere, good perks for high performers, promotion from within, growth opportunities. Management will work with you when you need flexibility. I have learned a number of different areas since I have been here and have been entrusted with high profile projects since very early on in my career.

    Cons

    Culture definitely isn't for everyone, more structured than some would expect

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make yourselves better accessible to all levels of associates and be open about the direction the company is headed in.

    Pros

    Benefits, after work programs are nice.

    Cons

    They hire people who are not qualified to work IT sometimes. Hard to advance quickly...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    In the IT department try to focus more on skills and background for advancement. Too often employees are moved up based on time.

    Pros

    They hire a lot of young people that do a lot of activities. Other than that, its not a good experience.

    Cons

    It's a really cheap company, and they pay under what the average is. You have to jump through a lot of hoops.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The business plan i'm sure is to hire young employees and pay them below the norm until they find a job elsewhere.

    Pros

    Great leadership, great training, great benefits, clean and organized work environment.

    Cons

    The only cons I can say is the job is underpaid compared to others like it. And if you want anything with sugar in it, you're out of luck. Also you can't use tobacco products and work here.
