I worked at Reynolds American full-time

Pros

Good pay and benefits if you want to live in Winston-Salem, NC. Other companies are matching because RAI continues to reduce benefits except for their executives.

Cons

Declining business, poor leadership, trying new ideas tried by the previous management. Throwing ideas against the wall and hope something sticks. Core cigarette business that generated the profits in decline. RAI focusing on smokeless and spit less products that will never generate the profits that the cigarette category previously generated.

Advice to Management

Get advice from the previous RJ Reynolds management, premerger RJRT was number 2 in the market and Brown Williamson was number 3.
