I worked at Reynolds American full-time

Pros

Interesting place to try to find a way to fit in with insane amounts of governmental regulations to stop you from doing your job. Always keeping you on your toes.

Cons

Too many layoffs. Over the last 5 years, the company has shrunk so much that people are overloaded. Additionally, IT is just inundated with work at all times, and there is never a chance to rest. You'll often work way too many hours and never get promoted for your efforts. Then, after all you've given up for the company, you'll be booted because they need to cut more jobs.

Advice to Management

Stop laying people off so you can take other stupid risks like buying companies that produce products to help your consumers stop using your product.

    I have been working at Reynolds American full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    RAI Services Company provides excellent compensation and benefits.

    Cons

    RAISC only wants employees who are certified in their field and let employees with 20+ years of experience go.

    Advice to Management

    Many years of experience and loyalty to the company are leaving the company. New employees who are hired do not possess the loyalty and dedication of the long time employees. This company will end up with more "chiefs" than "indians" and no loyalty and dedication it once had. The newer employees do not have a reason to remain with the company as the salaries are much lower now than in the past. Management is more task oriented than people oriented. This company used to be a great company to work for, and the culture has changed to the point where each employee is looking to "step on the toes" of the other employee to get ahead.
