      If you have suggestions for improving the company, we encourage you to share those through the proper channels. We’re always looking for ways to make our hiring process better. Concerns about your salary or the structure of your department should be discussed with your supervisor.

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Free tea and coffee. On site visits are enjoyable. Friendly colleagues

      Cons

      Boring work. Too much secrecy and no real chance of progression. Outdated style of working in pods. Management are not interested in your development. Strange guidelines verging on immoral.

      The Reynolds and Reynolds Company

      If associates have concerns about company policies, their day-to-day responsibilities, or career trajectory, we encourage them to keep an open line of communication with their supervisor. Reynolds is devoted to ongoing training and development activities for associates and we love to reward people who work hard with new opportunities.

      If an associate is finding their work monotonous or needs a change of pace/scenery, we’d encourage them to speak with their supervisor to see what can be done.

      Data Centre - Terrible job, but an opportunity to study

      26 Oct 2015 - Data Center Operations Technician in Birmingham, England, England
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      The Data Centre staff are a friendly bunch.

      Cons

      Don't mistake a job in the Reynolds and Reynolds Data Centre to be a real IT job, because it is far from it. There were months and months of mind-numbing boredom, with too many members of staff to perform the mundane daily duties of putting backup tapes in drives, which is all you will be trusted to do apart from the odd bit of cable tracing. Conversely, there would be other shifts where you'd spend 8 hours alone on a saturday night with nothing more for company than the bbc news website. Although the job itself was atrocious, the lack of anything to do during a shift left plenty of time to do your own thing. Whether 'your own thing' was studying, reading the news, playing computer games or sleeping, there is ample opportunity in the Data Centre for doing absolutely nothing. The pay is terrible, the application process is utterly ridiculous and verging on illegal (they categorically do not employ smokers), there is very much a policy of 'if your face fits then you'll do well' with management favourites being rewarded with pay rises and cushy positions. Basically, avoid; this once-great company has been ruined by its American owner. You can tell the difference between the pre-US employees and post-US-takeover employees is that the pre-US staff have great pensions, great holiday entitlement and shorter working days; all of that has been stripped away to leave a backward employer that is depressing to work for.

      Helpdesk Engineer - working for ITSpecialists

      5 Oct 2017 - Help Desk Analyst in Northfield, England, England
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Free parking Free hot drinks Ability to work autonomously in isolation

      Cons

      For an MSP they have no USP, or offer any service that is core to their business. I believe they lack direction or any sort of competitive edge and struggle to see how they can survive in such a competitive market. Though an MSP they have no control of their own internal network or desktop / server estate - this is controlled by their parent company. Office layout is like the original Tron Movie (US style Pods) Laptop / Desktop estate is over 10 years old Strategic Recruitment is non existent and the team as a whole lack experience and expertise to offer the levels of service to their customers.

      Aquiered by ReyRey

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      None, it's a horrible company that's out of touch.

      Cons

      I was an employee of a great little hard working company taken over by Reynolds, I had worked at the taken over company for a few years and was pretty good at my job. When the acquisition happened everyone including the director was forced to all take 2 hour long personality tests, fill out and part with all personal data for security checks, do drug tests, every month they force you to take many multiple choice tests about how great the American bosses apparently are worded in different ways, if you answer one wrong you have to re take the full test and if you don't take the test they lock you out of your computer. This company is micromanagement on steroids times a couple. They have everyone carry key cards and can tell you how long you are in different locations of there building, e.g. toilet or stair well. If your employer gets aquiered then I would advise to start looking for a new job and save yourself stress.
