Pros

Some regions operate like a family, they make sure that all of their people are in a position to succeed.
- Benefits
- Car
- People (Excluding Denver Team)
- Bonus
- Training

Cons

These were my negative experiences working with the Denver Region:
- No coaching
- No positive feedback
- Minimal Development
- Incompetent Upper Management
- Unrealistic Expectations from Upper Management
- Have to be 100% mobile for promotions
- Rule by fear
- Micro-managing
- (3 AM's in 3 months quit in 2011)

Advice to Management

Take a look at some of the people you have in Region Director and Senior Management positions. My experience in other regions was much more positive than in Denver.

    Pros

    Decent salary
    Company car
    Nice benefits package

    Cons

    VERY poor middle management / leadership
    No standard of goals for employees to achieve advancement
    Total popularity contest
    Those who are the laziest but best suck-ups get promoted every time regardless if a more tenured employee would like advancement

    Advice to Management

    TRAIN DIVISION MGRS on HOW to be a GOOD LEADER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Give CLEAR and CONCISE standards for EVERYONE, not just the DM's pet on how to advance
    Understand everyone enjoys having a life outside of RJ Reynolds
