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

    Pros

    The employees are all great, very friendly and familylike. company is very good at supporting charities and veterans.

    Cons

    Pay, no pay raises in over 6 years, even some employees have taken pay cuts. Reynolds lays off experienced workers and hires in straight out of college people at 1/4th of the pay. you also have to pass the same test that is given to air traffic controllers in order to get hired, I don't really see the relevance.

    Advice to Management

    Value your employees.

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

    Pros

    Weekends - when you weren't working.

    Cons

    Where do I start ... After hours "desk inspections" by management, no raises for years and years, The CEO would call "all hands meetings" to tell us who to vote for in local and national elections, upper management wears badges that say "EXECUTIVE" on their shirt so employees can show appropriate respect, no hard drives - everything is stored on common drives so it can be "reviewed" in case someone decides to do something personal on their work computer. If your resume is found on a job site you are fired immediately. the absolute worst work environment with a culture of fear and bullying that I have ever seen.

    Advice to Management

    Time to retire Mr. Brockman- please sell the company and you and all of your minions can - let this company be great again.

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

    Pros

    They will hire anyone who passes the personality test.

    Cons

    Terrible management. Would be surprised if they are still in business in 5 years.

    Advice to Management

    Sell the company, if you can, to someone who knows how to run a business.

    Pros

    Since the merger, people have less work to do so it easy to leave work early or show up late if personal needs arise. The people I work with are still good but most of the long term Rey employees have left or are leaving. There is more focus on product than there ever was under old Reynolds, which is great since old Reynolds was terribly disjointed when it came to product focus. The new Reynolds is also good at employee camraderie building- the picnics, sports teams, etc. are much more than the old Reynolds would ever do. But, that seems to be a cover for the downside...

    Cons

    Since the merger, the hiring model is to bring in young college graduates, which is great if that is what you are. But if you are a long term employee who did not come from Houston, your options are very limited. Houston associates can do no wrong. Dayton associates... well, you're lucky we tolerate your presence in this company. There is only one way to do things- the Houston way (the headquarters of UCS- the company that bought Reynolds). While I mentioned product focus as a good thing about the new Reynolds, unfortunately, there will be far fewer customers to take advantage of them. Dealers despise Bob Brockman- he and his less than customer focused policies are driving them away.

    Advice to Management

    Empower the employees. There is no trust from senior leadership to anyone.
