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

    Pros

    In recent years the company is much more focused on the employees and provides excellent training and tools to do the job. For self motivated individuals with leadership abilities the career advancement opportunities are excellent. The benefits are very good and continue to improve.

    Cons

    Change is a constant but that is not necessarily a negative. I have never been bored in the many years that I have worked for this company.

    Advice to Management

    None, the current executive management team is focused on the people that work for RAI and have a solid long term plan in place for the future of the organization.

    Pros

    I love this job! Great company with amazing support and training. Great benefits -- company car, paid vacation (Currently 5 weeks for me!), 401 etd. Very team oriented. You are left alone to manage your business.

    Cons

    The lonely hours! With one of the pros being you are left alone to manage your business, it is also one of the cons. Lot's of time spent on your own. You have interaction with customers everyday and your team is always available, but at the end of the day it is just you out there getting it done.

    Advice to Management

    Ensure we hit the goals! LTIPs for everyone!

    Company car, good benefits, the job isn't hard at all

    Cons

    no room for growth unless you are willing to move anywhere they tell you

    Advice to Management

    It is great to promote from within but I feel like this company could benefit from hiring some outside candidates to take the blinders off

    Pros

    Great work life balance. Managers help you set personal and professional goals to help you develop in a professional environment.

    Very large company, sometimes feel like a very small unimportant part of the company. I do not have any negatives.

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

    Pros

    What a wonderful fulfilling time is has been here at this company.
    The key word is "Engagement" at all levels, with peers, management, customers, & consumers.
    Great benefits, good compensation, bonus, car, 401K up to 6% match.
    They will have continuing education/training through the company.

    Cons

    This is an execution job, with there goal to turn it to communication job long term.
    There is always too much to do.
    50 hours a week is the norm.
    You are on an island, must be self motivated with little supervision.
    Very structured, very little latitude to innovate.

    Advice to Management

    Have a clear avenue for advancement through the organization.
    Everything can't be a priority. Cigarettes, Moist, VUSE, Gum, C/E's, CSS, IDP, Coaching.
    Let's face it not every outlet is an opportunity.

    Pros

    Great company culture, benefits and training

    Cons

    getting promoted depends highly on the area that you are assigned to, so in some cases may take longer than anticipated

    Advice to Management

    Make division management more uniform, some divisions have a lot lower expectations therefore TM's shine or appear to be doing a better job than in other divisions where the DM has a higher bar. therefore some TM's that are less qualified may get promoted simply because their supervisor expects less from them.
