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

    Pros

    company car, flexible schedule, thats all i can really list for the pros. oh, and free trips to OH- is that a pro?

    Cons

    old school company. good old boys club, very favorable towards the typical country club male. do not have proper training for new employees. underpaid for the amount of work expected. no structure or focus on selling products. overpriced commodities. very behind in technology for customer facing selling. too stingy to upgrade to salesforce or give the employees ipads for goodness sake. random drug tests, including nicotine.

    Advice to Management

    ha! as if management would ever take any advice from an employee. their egos would not allow it.

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

    Pros

    Onsite gym (free)
    Cafeteria onsite (not free)
    Plenty of parking
    Decent recruiting department

    Cons

    Interdepartmental squabbling
    Disjointed processes - one department doesn't really know what another is up to
    Clueless upper management almost entirely out of touch with majority of workers
    Employees are more expendable than cattle
    No where to go or talk to if you experience sexual assault or harassment in the workplace because WE DON'T HAVE AN HR DEPARTMENT.

    In fact, the management's response to a sexual harassment incident reported, concerning a contractor company that works in the building at night was not to discontinue that contract or correct the action. Instead, they just stopped having any women work any of the shifts when the contractors are on site. And the contractors had to be watched in the first place because they were caught stealing our computer equipment.

    Advice to Management

    Go outside. Do a salary comparison and actually find out what your industry average is.

    Treat your teams and individual employees better and you will earn that loyalty. Make it easier for departments to work together and appreciate the work that other departments do, by being more open.

    If you think your career has stopped progressing here, that's because it probably has. Your employees aren't necessarily doing any better either, but that's why they leave so frequently, to do better elsewhere. It's something to think about.

    Pros

    Cafeteria with great people and good food. Free gym.

    Cons

    Lowest paid positions in the industry. No HR department, so any problems are through management. Problem with management? Prepare to be ignored.

    I worked at Reynolds and Reynolds full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    If you want to relive high school or college days then this is the job for you. Cliques throughout the company.

    Cons

    Big brother environment. Everything is monitored from when you walk in the door (not exaggerating - they keep track of when you scan your badge in and out), emails, messaging, Internet, etc. No HR to go to about issues. No flexibility on work hours.

    Advice to Management

    Try to engage your associates. Make them feel like they are an asset and not easy to replace.

    Pros

    Entry level job good for people coming out of college.

    Cons

    Just about everything else... this is more of an entry level company for gaining some initial experience before looking for a solid career with better pay.

    Advice to Management

    Allow employees some freedoms, better pay and benefits. Allow salary employees to use promised comp time when working over.

    Pros

    The people you work with are great. That is about the only positive about working in the Naked Lime division of Reynolds.

    Cons

    Instability in staff and salary are the biggest components. They do not compete with the market when it comes to salary, not even close. When you interview, they tell you “there is opportunity to grow” but that is hardly ever the case for anyone. The turnover is unreal and no one seems to do anything or care that it is the way it is. “Bandaid” changes come and eventually don’t have an effect. They will continuously claim that salary isn’t the problem, but more times than not, it is. Job satisfaction is also an issue in the sense that you have monthly goals you have to hit. Once a new month starts, the goals start over, as well. The marketing Analyst role is extremely monotonous and only changes if you “get involved in side projects,” which no one care to do since it won’t affect your salary.

    Advice to Management

    COMPETE WITH THE MARKET. It is unreal how blind you are on this matter and it affects your employees more than you know. Telling those who leave “that is something I have no control over” is a joke because you have people who can send the message to the stingy man who runs the company when they go have their pow-wow at his home in Aspen.

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

    Pros

    Beautiful building. Lots of parking. Did I say lots of parking?

    Cons

    Low pay, VERY political office environment. It's who you know that seems to get you promoted. Micro managing. EVERYTHING. including when you step in and out of the building. Very VERY little consideration to employee personal needs. Negative re-enforcement of policies is seemingly encouraged by upper management.

    Advice to Management

    Be human and humane. People have lives & families outside of work.

    Pros

    The coworkers are the only bright spot in this place.

    Cons

    If you want to work for people who don't care about their employees or employee retention at all, this is the place for you. You will get minimal respect and appreciation for your work. Voicing your questions and concerns will be viewed as baseless negativity. This company excels in underpaying, overworking, and undervaluing. It is a toxic work environment and if you're not careful, you will become stuck and miserable here.

    Advice to Management

    Think about employee retention. When it's a normal thing to have 4 people quit in one week, you have a problem.
