    Pros

    Benefits are really nice and cheap. They have a lot of events in summer with free food and entertainment.

    Cons

    You have to be a favorite to get moved to different departments. They don't base it off of performance.

    Advice to Management

    Base promotions and bonuses off of performance rather than who you makes you laugh.

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

    Pros

    All the pros I've listed may be specific to my position, or my team, or my department and may not extend to other positions, teams, or departments within the company.
    -Flexible work environment (my department had core hours between 10 to 3 so you could adjust your 8 hour work day however you wanted as long as you were there for the core hours).
    -I got my own office! (no cubicles ftw!)
    -Self-paced work environment.
    -They have a cafeteria.
    -They train you (although their training consists of material you should've covered in college).
    -I worked alongside a pleasant and understanding team.
    -They have a quite a few extracurricular activities for their employees (Bowling, Softball, Picnics, etc.).
    -If you get there early enough, you can park within a garage

    Cons

    Before I start listing any cons, I want to mention that I did not list any of the cons out of anger and I was truly grateful to Reynolds for offering me a position after graduation. That being said...
    -Below average pay (I was paid 48k, when a entry level software developer salary is around 55k to 60k).
    -They have a policy prohibiting employees from discussing their salary with other employees. This only benefits the company by withholding information from the employee about whether their peer in making considerably more for the same work (search 'Adam Ruins Everything Salary' on YouTube).
    -Business Casual dress code (I considered this a con, but maybe it isn't to everybody).
    -Aside from salads, the cafeteria isn't very vegetarian friendly.
    -No paid vacation during your first year.
    -You get 2 unexcused paid sick days plus an additional 3 sick days, where a doctor's note must be provided.
    -You can't smoke ever, they test for nicotine when they drug test you (As a non-smoker, I actually considered this a pro but I don't think a company has the right to make this decision on your behalf).
    -I only worked here until I found something better but the benefits weren't great from what I saw
    -You have to stay with the company for 2 years before you become fully-vested with the 6% company matched 401k but you can start contributing to it right away
    -There didn't seem to be much you could do to improve your skill set with the company (This should definitely be a priority for a new graduate).

    Advice to Management

    At least pay your employees, the average starting salary for their position. You claim to recruit the best employees, but you can't possibly hope be able to retain them, nor should you expect to, by paying only 75% of what they deserve.

    Pros

    They hire people with no experience. 6% 401k matching.

    Cons

    Do not believe all these positive reviews! Seems management and/or marketing has been asked to inflate the company image. NO ONE in Houston thinks this is a desirable place to work. Only accept a job here if you are desperate, which was exactly my situation. Get your experience and get out. The pay is pathetic, the company culture is very stuffy and old-fashioned, and the product they put out is mediocre at best. The "CEO" is in his eighties now...is he even still mentally competent to run a huge business? The president up and quit recently...does he know something the rest of us don't?

    Advice to Management

    No use giving advice to management. They don't listen.

    Pros

    Reynolds and Reynolds is the industry leader in technology and innovation. Our customers view us as a trusted business partner. This is a job where you can feel a real sense of accomplishment in helping customers discover ways to become more profitable, more efficient, etc.

    No two days are the same, which keeps things interesting. The work environment is competitive, but fun. The people are what makes this such a great place to work!

    Cons

    As with any large company, there is a fair amount of bureaucracy that I don't always understand.

    Pros

    The benefits are admittedly pretty good.

    Cons

    In the other hand, everything else about the company is terrible. Management us overbearing and offers no real support. The work is tedious. There is no opportunity for advancement. Training is inefficient and inadequate. The company forces employees to participate in unpleasant after hours activities and punishes those who don't attend. The dress code antiquated and unbelievably strict.

    Advice to Management

    Stop being so upright and overbearing. There's a reason you can't retain your employees.

    Pros

    -Reynolds has a fantastic recruiting program. They were very present at my college, speaking about their company and promoting how they hire right out of college very frequently.
    -Most people in other departments were extremely nice and very welcoming, loved to chat and be positive.
    -Huge company, impressive campus
    -Easy to find an activity to get involved with.
    -Tons of tech related jobs

    Cons

    -Something I found frustrating was the lack of structure for moving up in the company. Working in certain departments seems to be a dead-end in a lot of ways.
    -The department I worked in was very negative and condescending towards Reynolds and towards other departments.
    -Interns are paid very little for the industry.
    -Most tasks are band-aids for bigger issues, but the workers seem to be so bored they don't really care

    Advice to Management

    Boost morale.
    Improve the company culture, especially in the tech realm.
