    I have been working at Reynolds American full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    -Opportunities for upward mobility if you are willing to RELOCATE and put in the work to get there. -Work Hard, Play Hard Company culture (if you're into that) -Developing Talent is highly valued... this company will invest in you! -All promotions are within the RAI talent pool (outside RAI hires are rare) -Benefits are fairly good (Vehicle/GAS, 401K, Health/Dental).

    Cons

    -little opportunity to be creative. Much of the work is execution and robotic based. Unfortunately, the job can get somewhat monotonous and boring. -inconsistency at entry level manager due to inexperienced manager's. Some manager's are excellent, some are horrible. In my opinion, much of this is due to RAI's "fast-track" strategy with succession candidates. -Some bureaucracy (like any other fortune 500). ... -Work Environment is primarily at Gas Stations and Convenience Stores... not exactly a glamorous work site.
