    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.

    Pros

    Some great people, some not

    Company culture is a constant issue and there are few in middle and upper management whom deserve to be removed from their positions.

    I worked at Reynolds and Reynolds full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Opportunity for advancement is great, they promote from within
    - Excellent Benefits (6% 401K match vested after 2 years)
    - Work with a variety of technologies / languages (depending on what team you're on)
    - My supervisor allowed me a pretty flexible schedule as long as I got my hours in and my work done and allowed me to make hours up if I needed to take off for something
    - Work life balance is as good as you can ask for. My supervisor made it a point to not keep me past 8 hours if he could help it.
    - They don't require a whole bunch of previous experience as a developer, so it's a great start for programmers just getting out of school
    - They provide internal professional development courses for employees
    - Lots of company wide after work social events to join with fellow coworkers
    - Cafeteria food is excellent (but you need to pay yourself)
    - No office politics
    - I really liked the culture. The mentality was that if you work hard and get results, you'll rise up fast in the company.

    Cons

    - Pay is below market average but they hire a lot of entry level devs.
    - On my floor, we were separated into small 'sound proof' offices which led to me having a lot less interaction with my coworkers than I'd like. This is a personal preference and could be a pro for the right person.
    - Not really any code reviews on my team. I had to take it upon myself to learn from and ask questions of my team members to advance my skill set.
    - Pretty rigid bureaucracy when it came to implementing new projects / features so if you're looking for Scrum or Agile, it's probably not the right place for you
    - A lot of the projects I worked on used old code / languages, some of which wasn't all that translatable to other jobs

    Advice to Management

    You can pay developers less to get them in the door, but bump up the raises a bit higher so that you'll eventually be on par with the rest of the market. It seems like once you get to a certain level of experience, developers are leaving a whole lot of money on the table just by keeping their jobs at Reynolds vs. going somewhere else.

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

    Pros

    The company promotes from within, which is good for upward mobility. There are no office politics to speak of and the benefits are relatively good from what I hear. Solid 401k match (6%). They also don't require as much prior experience for programmers, which can mean that newbies get solid training in development.

    Cons

    The pay is significantly below the industry average with no sign of change anytime soon. This causes some poaching to occur which can disrupt projects or shake up teams.

    Advice to Management

    Make the pay more competitive if you want to hold onto the employees you train from scratch.
