    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.

    I worked at Reynolds American full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Well known name & many in demand products. Good salary and benefits. Company car.

    Cons

    Management more concerned with market share and distribution than with customers and ethics. Reps are required to act like they own the retail stores they deal with. It's RJR's way or no way.

    Pros

    Good place to work to gain B2B account management experience. Excellent benefits, company car, great health ins, laptop, cellie, free cigs. The employees are very nice people and are always willing to lend a helping hand if you are new.

    Cons

    Tobacco is a very contreversial item to sell, be prepared. Although, as long as you have thick skin you will be fine, After all this is a product for ADULTS. They will not consider relocating you or even hiring you if you are not willing to relocate.
