If you’re starting your interview process, look elsewhere
N/A (Former Employee) – Dayton, OH – September 11, 2018
The culture and people at Reynolds and Reynolds are great, but that’s essentially all they have.
The company’s longevity is a mask that hides their declining sales. The systems they try to sell are antequated and arbitrary for the growing and changing direction of the Automotive Industry. The Retail Management Systems they sell are bulky, obsolete, and in many instances actually hurt the dealerships that do business with them.
Unwilling to change, Reynolds and Reynolds holds on to the business practices established 50 years ago with no regards to advancements in efficiency, technology, and RMS business infastructure.
From start to finish, you begin to see the errant and archaic methods used to conduct daily business. From the 4-7 separate interviews, to the 18 month on-boarding process, and on to the blind eye they turn against innovative advancements made by competitors, the big picture and long term outlook is murky to say the least.
Still being run and operated by a man nearly 80 years old, the company doesn’t have a clear course of action to continue business if upper-level personell changes are required. They aren’t quick to adapt, either, as 4 of the 7 managers explained to me during my interview process.
If you’re looking for a long-term career path, I suggest choosing a company with proven growth in revenue, rather than almost 20 years of declining sales.
Great culture, positive work environment
Stubborn, antequated, ominous future
