    I have been working at Reynolds Consumer Products full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The corporate leadership team is very accessible and willing to support the field locations. The company values match my own and are something I can get behind and endorse. There is a strong message of integrity throughout the company. Also, I find the compensation competitive and the benefits package more than competitive. I've been pleased with the benefits so far and think they are better than some similar companies.

    Cons

    I have not experienced anything concerning.

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

    Pros

    friendly people and plenty of "fun" day to day. Teamwork is a part of the culture. Goal is to better the business not the individual, which in the end rewards everyone.

    Cons

    Timing always a rush due to lack of appropriate planning. not seen as an issue because someone always finds a way to get it done - usually through long hours and overtime and cutting corners. Quality suffers in that environment.

    Advice to Management

    Have managers who plan things well train others who don't. Make project planning a part of all managers goals and rate them on it. Better planning brings out better quality, a culture to cultivate.

    Pros

    Great company, team, leaders, comp, and benefits! Treated me great while I was there and only left because I was recruited out to a role I just couldn't turn down. With that said, I'd love the opportunity to work for Reynolds again!

    Cons

    None to really mention. Truly great experience.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up all the great work!

    Pros

    Decent pay. Great upward mobility.

    Cons

    Corporate politics are part of the culture

    Advice to Management

    Sometimes the best candidates are already inside the company. Don't be afraid to make changes at any level. New perspectives can make a big difference.

    Pros

    100% 401k match up to 6%, 2% annual 401k contribution, 10% annual manager bonus, opportunity for growth, strong management team, great culture, casual environment, flexible hours, very competitive pay

    Cons

    Workplace environment is good, but IT folks are overworked and it shows during projects.

    Advice to Management

    While the health insurance benefits are good, more needs to be done regarding what types of doctor visits do and do not apply to deductible before coverage kicks in. Employees should not have to pay out of pocket for a dermatologist appointment because they haven't met their deductible. Understandably, however, deductibles should apply to ER visits, surgeries, etc.

    I have been working at Reynolds Consumer Products (More than a year)

    Pros

    Jeans everyday
    My functional leader is great and supports my development and my team's development
    Great pay and bonus
    People in my function are getting moved around and promoted
    Overall it is a great function to work in
    Great opportunities to have visibility to leadership and to make changes

    Cons

    Notice most of my pros all have to do with my particular function. My co-workers in other functions seem to be miserable. Alot of this has to do with their leaders not supporting them or giving them the support they need. I have seen managers throw their own employees under the bus in meetings just to save themselves.

    Reynolds is still trying to figure out their culture. They need to move this initiative along before we lose more great people!

    Advice to Management

    As another reviewer said, get rid of those few bad apples that are making it miserable for others. For example, if marketers keep turning over and over and over within a few months under the same leadership, maybe something is wrong with that leader?

    Keep trying to define the culture.

    I would only suggest this as a place to work for my friends depending on the function.

    I have been working at Reynolds Consumer Products full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Growing company with great, well-known brands, large company that moves and changes quickly. Leadership will give you as much responsibility as you want to take on (and expects results), many opportunities to learn and develop. Overall business results have been and continue to be very good.

    Cons

    No official policy on working remotely. Culture and identity of the company still needs to be developed.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in developing the culture and making this a great place to work for years to come!
