    Pros

    Never a dull moment! Constant change, so fasten your seatbelt! Good compensation package, company vehicle, good people who care about work-life balance. Strong company vision for the future.

    Cons

    Can sometimes be a little overwhelming with so many things going on at once. Good planning skills are a must for survival. Your office throughout the day could consist of a beer display to a milk crate. Must be versatile and thrive in a variety of different retail outlets.

    Advice to Management

    Leadership team has demonstrated a strong effort to listen to their employees and are constantly striving for a coaching culture to help win as a team. We will get there. Keep up the great work!

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

    Pros

    Company Car, Benefits, learn a lot , and company events. Great place to work dependent on Manager. Some DMs make working for the company hell. Others love their job and really want to coach their TMs to grow within the company

    Cons

    Management, CE requirements, very cliquish and disrespect coming from some management.
    Ask for transparency with TMs, but some management will mistreat TMs due to culture or backgrounds

    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

    From the outside it looks like there doing the right thing, benefits are a positive and rarely do they fire anyone

    Cons

    Values and culture are misguided, very political environment, middle to higher management is driven solely by self interests while the organization does not really believe in their transformational vision

    Advice to Management

    Replace middle management who have no idea what leadership is

    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.
