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

    Pros

    The list of benefits are hard to beat. But it only looks good on the surface. Everyone I've spent more that 10 minutes talking to hates working there.

    Cons

    Overpriced cafeteria, entitled employees, grumpy/judgmental health station staff, everyone always looks miserable... I could go on, but I think you get the idea. Lied to about what my job was going to be.

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

    Pros

    Reynolds is a leader in its industry delivering superior products and customer service enabling our customers to achieve good business results. I enjoy being part of a team consistently and constantly striving for excellence.

    Reynolds has a promote from within philosophy which provides opportunities for newer associates.

    Outstanding internal training opportunities, particularly for Sales professionals.

    Cons

    Career paths are not always clearly laid out within all departments. This requires the individual to be more proactive in managing their career. Career oriented individuals should be proactive anyway, though.

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

    Pros

    A culture of execution (get stuff done), long-term organizational focus, internal associate development, stability, consistent company growth, focused on keeping Americans employed, conservative culture, driven by a strong vision, accessible leadership, promotes from within, no dead weight (everyone works their butts off) career mobility, believes in building the best possible product regardless of investment and time frame to do so.

    Cons

    can be slow to provide upcoming technologies to employees, heavy workloads at times caused by turnover, tough vacation policy for new hires, pay can be low depending on job role.

    Advice to Management

    Allow leadership to make their own decisions. Empower managers and directors to make decisions without Executive approval, and let them learn from their decisions.

    I have been working at Reynolds and Reynolds (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Hands down, the thing I like most about Reynolds is the people. Most people I deal with have great integrity and really seem to care about providing great service to their customers. The company also does a lot to encourage people to get to know each other through sports leagues and other company events. Many of the people you meet at work will be the people you will end up wanting to hang around with outside of work.

    Great 401k match and favorable health benefit package (especially with the discount).

    The facilities are also really nice with an onsite gym, cafeteria, convenience store, credit union, and health center.

    I also think the company does a lot to try to provide training to associates knowing that many are right out of school and have zero corporate or automotive sector experience.

    There is room for growth though it can sometimes take longer than the 6-12 months that some people expect; you just have to continue to grow your skills and show your talents.

    Cons

    Sometimes Reynolds is at a disadvantage in regards to salary which causes some good people to go elsewhere, which is unfortunate.

    Movement within the company (outside your direct department) can sometimes be tricky depending on your current job role. Probably needs a more codified system to help with career path of associates since some managers do a better job than others.

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

    Pros

    I've worked at Reynolds for over 15 years -- through good times and bad. No better place to work, best people, and great opportunities if you're willing to work hard and learn--your potential is limitless. Great facility and benefits, and such a rich history in the industry and the community.

    Cons

    A lot of young, new associates with little experience who do not want to give the time to make a career. They need to give a career more than a couple years to really appreciate the benefits. This is a great place to be.

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

    Pros

    Dental & vision insurance, on-site clinic, on-site gym, on-site cafeteria with good food, sports leagues, free beer at events

    Cons

    Health insurance plans aren't that great, they don't offer paid parental leave, they require a dr note for sick days, they'll fire you for any nicotine product use, some dept management doesn't have your back (and if you cross them, they'll go out of their way to make you miserable or try to get you fired), pay is marginal at best for your job expectations, and they have a major micro-managing problem.

    Advice to Management

    Change is a good thing. Keeping up with the times is a good thing. If you want to see an improvement in the overall atmosphere, start offering better benefits (paid parental leave, more PTO, no dr note for sick days - we're adults so we don't need a dr to tell us when we are sick, paint some of the walls, allow more relaxed dress codes for those who only work in the office and aren't customer facing, and treat your employees like human beings that have a life outside of work.

    I have been working at Reynolds and Reynolds full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Reynolds is a very stable, efficient company fully of hard working associates. Corporate culture is driven by the promote-from-within policy. Upper management is, for the most part, made up of extremely long-tenured employees. Often times, leaders have faced similar challenges in the past as ground-floor associates, which feeds into the companies steadiness.

    All in all, a great place to work. If you show up, do your job, and buy into the company, you can count on having a long and rewarding career at Reynolds.

    Cons

    The company doesn’t take many risks, and can seem a little boring from the outside. This can be viewed as a positive trait, since Reynolds rarely makes bad or risky investments.

    Advice to Management

    Think about how mobility is changing due to technology (UBER, manufacturer subscription programs, ride-sharing, etc), and find a way to ensure Reynolds has products and services that make sense in the world 15-20 years from now.

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

    Pros

    Great people to work with.

    Cons

    Lack of accountability - tenure holds too much weight. 401k match is great but other benefits are lacking. I recommend working here as an entry level job if you do not have a family.

    Advice to Management

    If you notice a team is suffering because their supervisor is incompetent, do something about it instead of just agreeing with the associates and making jokes.

    Pros

    Reynolds takes great pride in doing things right. Strong market reputation and solid leadership of industry experts who provide clear direction for the company. Market leader with products and technology

    Cons

    As a reasonably large company can be a bit slower to change / adapt that a smaller, more nimble organization. More structured than some people may care for.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing and we will continue to be successful
