    Pros

    Working for Reynolds makes it easy to come to work. They have created a great corporate culture, they offer great pay and benefits and they have completely updated the office space in the corporate headquarter building. It is hard to imagine a better place to work. When you walk in the doors each day you read a graphic that says "through these doors walk the finest employees." The organization backs that up in the way we are treated.

    Cons

    This is such a great place to work that there is low turnover, meaning positions do not come up very often.

    Advice to Management

    Management is doing an excellent job of creating a positive and motivated workforce at the company.

    Pros

    Hands on career development plans and mentorships, competitive salary & bonus, outstanding 401k program, tuition reimbursement, renovated home office, onsite gym with trainers, cafeteria, state of the art tech, free garage parking, low employee turnover.

    Cons

    Finance might be a bit overstaffed at present meaning individual jobs are lower impact. Difficult to stand out in a crowd of talented, motivated, educated professionals. Upcoming acquisition by BAT means some uncertainty.

    Advice to Management

    Wouldn't presume. Love working here!

    I have been working at Reynolds American full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I work at American Snuff Company Clarksville TN, have been with the company for almost 5 years, hands down the best company I've worked for in my life. From pay to annual bonuses, paid leave, sick and personal time witch in most companies now a days is not even heard of, paid holidays and 401k. That's the money part but they also help thru HR from financial help to medical short and long term disabilities witch they pay 100% also not heard of now a days. This is the BEST company to work for.

    Cons

    If I had to put one it would be that the taste of success program witch is a great program but if you have a certain illness you are not eligible to be part of, and they pay co-workers when they participate and because of that illness that I had I can't, I would like for the company to see if there was a way to include those people that can't. Not the only one that fills this way

    Advice to Management

    Stay on Course, Great Job, Keep up the Good Work.

    Pros

    They have a excellent training course and very experienced people to help you. The job offers a good wage and benefits along with bonuses and many other perks not offered by most other employers.

    Cons

    They need to make preventive maintenance on machinery a more important factor.

    Advice to Management

    Trust the people on the floor and listen to their concerns. It will benefit both parties.

    Pros

    Reynolds American provides a competitive environment. RAI is committed to employee development; encouraging employees to pursue training opportunities. RAI offers benefits such as work from home to suport work/life balance. RAI stands behind good sound science, data integrity, and credibility.

    Cons

    I have worked for RAI for over 20 years. I find it most impressive that I struggle finding a Con to list about this company.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to develop employees and support good sound science.

    Pros

    As a new employee, they find a nice balance between letting you learn your new job function and giving support through different orientation experiences and classes to get you caught up on the company history and culture. They have great benefits and I love the way that they focus on your individual development plan by including your desired personal leadership pathway on your employee profile! At my last company, high-performing employees had to wait for their managers to speak up for them (which may or may not happen depending on the manager) and had much less ownership of their career development, so kudos to Reynolds!

    Cons

    A lot of team work is done which is a good thing, but sometimes the RACI idealogy might help to clarify roles and responsibilities for multi-lead projects.

    Advice to Management

    Thanks for setting up newbies for success!
