I worked at Reynolds American full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

There is a lot to like about working for RJ Reynolds as a TM. The benefits are solid, the pay is above average when compared to other TM positions and you have a lot of freedom to work from a home office. As a TM, you are also provided with a company car with no personal use restrictions, your internet is provided at home as well as wirelessly through a "Jet Pack," and you are provided a cell phone allowance.

Cons

This is not a very professionally rewarding position. Most of the work you do is "busy work" that really has no value to the company. You could literally work 7-8 days a month and be an overachiever in this position. The laid back company culture is very enjoyable, but the job unfortunately grows ever more redundant. There has been very little opportunity for career advancement over the last 3-4 years.

Advice to Management

I have no advice for management. I believe that most of the management team is doing what is necessary to get themselves noticed. If anything, since RJR is a company that promotes from within, don't take your position too seriously. You have held the same position as your subordinates, and you know the ups and downs of the position... manage with that information in mind.
