I worked at Reynolds American full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Well known name & many in demand products. Good salary and benefits. Company car.

Cons

Management more concerned with market share and distribution than with customers and ethics. Reps are required to act like they own the retail stores they deal with. It's RJR's way or no way.

Advice to Management

Without your customers you have nothing.

    I worked at Reynolds American full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Anyone who has worked in the tobacco industry knows how stressful it can be. But as long as you know that than make sure you work for the one company that treats you well and with respect. My time at RJ Reynolds was by far the best of any company I have worked for. Training was exceptional, very forward thinking. Pay and benefits for the job I did have been hard to replace.

    Cons

    Mostly outside the company itself. Stressful and very competitive. Fighting all the time with your competition, retailers, and anti- smoking climate.

    Advice to Management

    Realize that people are not always going to be open to constant relocation, and the answers aren't with every kid just out of college with a piece of paper.
