      Cons

      The culture has changed drastically since BAT took over. The new direction of "Move fast Move forward" is just that.....and the goal is the achieve market leadership. Unfortunately in order to achieve this goal they have to apply an extreme amount of pressure to the sales force which affects work life balance. There are so many moving parts to achieve flawless execution with the expectation of 100% coverage.

      Great Company to Work For

      Pros

      Best thing is the family work culture where everyone helps support and develop each other and all are driving towards the same company goals. You are you own boss for the most part in Trade Marketing- you're given the goals and have the ability to drive and run your own business unit. I always thought of all my positions as like running a sole Proprietorship (your Org Unit), just operating it inside the bigger company guidelines. Especially for those not sure exactly what they want to do coming out of college (like I was), it's provided a career of challenges, professional development and training. The opportunities are endless if you have the talent and passion to excel and challenge yourself, promotes from within almost always. Work life balance is all up to you to plan and organize yourself well. Solid comp package and benefits plus a company vehicle.

      Cons

      Public perception that the industry is over, actually it's a very predictable business model that's still very profitable. Learning how to not let all the negative industry news, attacks or others opinions about the business bother you. It actually bonds the folks here closer as a family I feel.

      Pros

      Company car, but they charge $150 per month regardless if you drive it for personal use or not.

      Cons

      Reynolds use to be a great company with a good culture, team environment and a good work-life balance. Those days are long gone as now the company only cares about 1 thing and it's not its people which is a true shame. The promotion process is a total joke as the ones who are favorites of upper management are the ones to get promoted which is a big part of the problem. Everyone at the top is a "yes man" and does whatever they are told without questioning the reasons or why's in order to look good and ambitious. No one has a backbone or loyalty to their peers, everyone is out for themselves!. My advice to anyone looking to join this company...take advantage of their training and experience to add to your resume and then get the hell out!

      Loved the people not the promotion process

      Pros

      Great work/life balance, great pay and bonus incentives, benefits and car

      Cons

      Over worked at times, lack of communication and understanding of the expectations of the TMs. Upward promotions are next to impossible to get if you are not able to relocate. Once you are a tenured rep they know you will have a hard time replacing the income.
