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

    Pros

    Ongoing training and development. Opportunity to travel, but not all the time. Steady company that gives you all the tools to be successful. Despite selling a product that is in decline, you never feel as if massive cuts are coming.

    Cons

    Dirty job, must be willing to get your hands dirty. No real opportunity for advancement, but the salary is decent and increases with time.

    Former Employee - Territory Manager in Boston, MA (US)
    Former Employee - Territory Manager in Boston, MA (US)

    I worked at Reynolds American full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    This job provides a company vehicle (usually a fully loaded Ford SUV) with gas card for personal use, which is a huge bonus because you don't have to pay for gas or a car ever. This is a respectable marketing position that won't keep you in an office or behind a desk all day.

    Cons

    Older management doesn't catch up with trends. Dying, heavily regulated and vilified industry.

    Pros

    Decent pay (especially for young people fresh out of college)
    Good bonus

    Company car is definitely a huge plus, with free gas. Your car is your office, everyday is a different. You're not stuck inside a cubicle.

    Some managers tend to micro-manage

    Learn some constructive criticism, be more motivating to your team.
