    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.

    I have been working at Reynolds American full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Benefits, company car, education reimbursement, freedom on the road, great coworkers, and decent work-life balance most times. Great job if you are single and willing to move around the country to promote. Company seems to really try to do the right thing, even though it is a controversial industry. Great brands to work with.

    Cons

    Management can sometimes hold unreasonable expectations. The base pay is pretty low compared to my last job in the same industry. Recent CRM launch has not gone very well at all. Arbitrary qualitative achievement goals that are weighted at 50% of bonus. Not a lot of opportunity to promote without displacing your entire life. Cost of living increase in California is nowhere near as high as it should be, currently 15% when it is closer to at least double when living in LA, SF, SD.

    Advice to Management

    More pay when living in major metropolitan regions. Don't use the state average cost when making these cost of living decisions. This can create a lot of turnover. I really wish there was a lot more opportunity to advance without moving around the country, but I do understand how that could be difficult.
