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

    Pros

    Reynolds is an industry leader, and very well known in the field. They've been around for over 150 years, and are only seeing growth in the industry. They produce top performing technology that helps customers operate their business. Being able to say you work for an industry leader is very rewarding. The company hires a lot of entry level applicants, but strives on promotion from within. It's nice to see that majority of the managers, directors and VPs started with Reynolds in an entry level role and worked their way up. Benefits are great, and working at headquarters has added perks like the cafeteria, convenience store, health center and work out facility. The company also offers a great 401k plan with matching up to 6%.

    Cons

    The vacation policy can take some getting used to, but with the added time off for holidays I have never struggled with not having enough paid time off each year.

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

    Pros

    The company takes care of you with a company vehicle, great management, and extensive training. They don't hide what you are getting by signing on the dotted line, but if you don't expect to work, you won't do well here.
    You will have to be self-motivated, your boss will expect that. Please don't be one of those kids right out of college that expects everything handed to them. You have to work for what you get.

    Cons

    Health insurance is too expensive. Other than that, they are great.

    Advice to Management

    Quit hiring kids right out of college that can pass the tests for ability, but have no idea how to deal with actual humans. We have gone through so many people in my time here because they just can't handle getting dressed down by a dealer or actually have to push back on them without sounding like a complete jerk and they fail every time.

    I worked at Reynolds and Reynolds full-time

    Pros

    Once you are an employee at Reynolds there are many opportunities to move into different roles> This is a nice because you not only learn about the automotive business in its entirenty but you also have the ability to learn about marketing, product planning/management and the sales process (assuming you are a good fit for that department and your test scores.)

    Cons

    The pay scales are low and the work load is high.

    I have been working at Reynolds and Reynolds full-time

    Pros

    Reynolds offers GREAT training that allows you to succeed. There are people and resources available to you when you need it. Management is very solid and made up mostly of people who have "been there, done that" in the past.

    Cons

    The documents side does not get as much support as the systems side. You constantly have to sell against your own company as each division is ran like a silo. The marketing department needs to be ran by someone other than a former lawyer. He is NOT a salesman and does NOT understand what happens in the real world.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees and let the best solution win for the customer. Quit babying your pet departments (Naked Lime, systems) and allow us to play on equal footing.

    Pros

    I was an intern in the Software Education Department. The people I was working with were awesome. And editing Computer Assisted Instructions (CAIs) with Adobe flash and Microsoft paint allowed me itch my artsy, creative itch every now and then. Also, while working on a CAI I was able to learn many little tidbits about the car selling business. And finally, Reynolds and Reynolds, and everyone there was very proud of the fact that they try to promote from within.

    Cons

    The only problem was after the first couple of weeks, it did start to get repetitive.

    Pros

    At Reynolds and Reynolds, associates have endless opportunities to succeed and grow in their career. As an industry leader, Reynolds only gives the best to their employees. They have a great company culture, outstanding benefits, and incredible associates and leadership. The philosophy at Reynolds is to work hard, play hard. The company holds events throughout the year to appreciate their employees, they have different sports leagues for each part of the year for employees to participate in, and they do a lot of charity work to give back to their local areas. The company also does a lot of promoting from within the company so there are endless opportunities to excel in your career. Overall, Reynolds is an incredible place to work.

    Cons

    Reynolds is a very large company, employing over 4,000 associates. If a large, corporate company is not what you're looking for, Reynolds will not be for you.

    Pros

    Great atmosphere, great people, great product, great training. If you are considering entering corporate sales I doubt you'll find a company willing to invest as much money and interest into your training as Reynold's.

    Cons

    Unfortunately Reynold's is rather intrusive in terms of drug testing for tobacco and thorough background checks. If you don't use tobacco and you have a clean record this is an incredible place to start a successful career.

    I worked at Reynolds and Reynolds (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    They hire people without a lot of experience and train them in how they do things.

    Cons

    MANAGEMENT!!! Most of the management is very gossipy and only care if you have something to tell them. They don't like to deal with tough situations if they don't have to and usually don't do it in the best way once they do.

    Advice to Management

    Act like managers!
