I worked at Reynolds American

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 ManagementAdvice

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.

    I have been working at Reynolds American

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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
