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

    Pros

    Great pay and benefits, but don't think it's long term. You'll start off much higher but in the long haul you'll make less, unless you can move up every 3 years max. don't wait longer than that. You don't have to be a rocket scientist to work there, so it's a great "start out" company. They will provide a lot of training that you will eventually want to take someplace else.

    Cons

    Once you work in tobacco, in many cases when you go to move on, other companies will question your judgement due to the fact you worked for a tobacco co. It unfortunate and based on ignorance, but true. Long term growth and advancement will NOT be as fast with other CPG's if you are a result oriented hard working, innovative type person.

    Advice to Management

    This is a more top down style run company versus a bottoms up company. Get in make friends and sound good and you'll do well. Used to be a very result oriented company. They do not value longer term experience due to the potential long term cost of longer term employee's. It more of a what have you done for me lately management style. Upper management rarely changes, reducing opportunity at the higher positions.

    Have to play the "game" to get promoted
    Industry is taboo... people say some interesting things about you
    You have to be mobile... which can be really good or really bad
    in gas stations all day, not the most glamorous work

    Advice to Management

    Don't micro manage and TM's will be happier
