    I have been working at Reynolds and Reynolds full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Stable company with experienced, caring leadership and some of the best products in the industry. Hands down the best support in our industry.

    Cons

    A little too much turnover in Sales (Gen Z). Market perception can be disconnected from our value proposition. Difficult industry facing major disruption in the years ahead.

    Advice to Management

    Share more with the front line folks on company vision, strategy and their future potential. Hedge against major business model disruption likely to occur in 5-10 years.

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

    Pros

    The facilities are beautiful and have all kinds of amenities: gym, dining facility, credit union, health center, convenience store.
    Work/life balance is really good in most departments. Work tends to stay in the office.
    Training is very thorough and continuous. There are a lot of opportunities to take classes relative to job skills for any position.
    Products are extremely good. The company invests in improvement.
    The people are very talented, and it is a very warm environment. Many people here engage in social activities: sport leagues, card clubs, or other work-sponsored social events.
    My experience has been the company is very flexible with adjusting hours if you need a window off on a given day.
    6% company match for 401(k).

    Cons

    The pay is below the market average. On-site perks help offset, but this is a shock for many potential incoming associates.
    Health insurance is cheap, but the coverage is poor. There are not many health options.
    The office is not in a very attractive geographical place for young talent to move.

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

    Pros

    I think the experience depends on where you work including departments/teams. Fortunately I like where and who I work with.

    The 401(k) is nice.

    The atmosphere is kind of like college, lots of young people.

    There’s a lot of company events and clubs/hobbies/sports that you can get involved with.

    Cons

    The hours are reeaaally long, most companies are 9-5 or 8-4. But 8-5 is a bit much.

    The benefits outside of the 401(k) is a little weak. Especially vacation/sick days and holidays. I get 2 sick days for half a year which is kind of ridiculous and apparently it’s better now... Also no vacation the first year, makes sense but it’s still a con. And there’s only 8 holidays where we don’t have to come in.

    Advice to Management

    I think fixing little things like sick days and vacation can go a long way in retaining employees. Little things make people happy.

    Pros

    The benefits are good. There is room to move up and ample education opportunities to better learn the industry.

    Cons

    The company does not seem to care much about their customers. The attitude of 'not my problem' is very common at all levels.

    Advice to Management

    Get to know your employees and care about the work that is put out there

    I worked at Reynolds and Reynolds full-time

    Pros

    Great entry level job, workplace is full of faces fresh out of college, good work/life balance, decent wages with tons of opportunities for raises and bonuses, dirt cheap health insurance (if you're healthy/ aren't going to use it), and excellent 6% matching on 401k.

    Cons

    Hard skills learned have very little relevance to other companies (the nature of working for a company which provides proprietary software) and management has very little interest teaching you/ letting you learn skills that would make you more attractive to other employers (no rewards for industry certifications, no tuition reimbursement programs). Good if your plan is to work here short term (under three years), good if your plan is to work here forever (until retirement), bad if your plan is to work here anywhere in between.
