The Dayton campus is very nice. There is a gym, cafeteria, sand volleyball, softball field and lots of space to walk or run outside. The company values wellness and rewards their employees foraking an effort to stay healthy. They pride themselves in being a tobacco free company. However, if you plan on starting or growing your family while working with the company it is extremely complicated with very few good options for leave.
Cafeteria onsite, Free Gym Access, company-sponsored events and sports, charitable foundation
Terrible maternity leave options, long hours, cubicle environment, not very flexible hours, hardly any opportunities for remote work, not easy to build/progress career
Technician (Former Employee) – College Station, TX – January 30, 2019
Did its job in helping pay some of my bills but the advancement and entertainment of the job were lacking . The management is good but most of them do not really enjoy their work either because of the little room for advancement. They definitely exploit the fact that they are located in a college town and have an infinite line of workers hungry for the meager $10 an hour pay. Overall, this place reminds me of the movie Office Space and it is where dreams go to die. .

Coming straight out of college the position was good. Unfortunately over time there was not room for growth and the quality of management decreased. There was also a significant lack of any work life balance which over times drains the staff.
Hardware Install Coordinator (Former Employee) – College Station, TX – January 25, 2019
This company does not listen to its employees, nor does it promote from within, regardless of what they say. They tell you that they enjoy doing so, but they lie in their interview. They have allowed the good ol' boy system to flourish in this environment, and it makes working for them miserable. Those who are in, stay in and those who speak up are shut out. Those who work in the "lower levels" of the company have to follow very strict rules regarding the use of tobacco, but those who are in higher management may do as they please.
This job was probably the worst I've ever had. The work is mind numbing and the environment is soul killing. Everyone there hates their jobs and is constantly miserable.
Training, while extensive, is all over the place. It's taught non-consecutively and over a month long period. So you usually have no idea what you're doing. The technology they have you use is decades out of date, difficult to use, and often unsupported by the original manufacturer.
The management is oppressive and godawful. They try and control every aspect of your life, both in and outside of work. They even try to monopolize your time on the weekends and after work as well. They're unsupportive and unhelpful.
If you're not religious or not politically conservative, be ready to be discriminated against. Also, "celebrations" are mandatory. Even if you have work due, you'll be expected to go out and "mingle" at someone else's cubicle for 30 minutes (and exactly 30 minutes). They do this to keep up moral, but it's all a farce.
They churn through employees at a terrifying rate. Using them until they've squeezed out all the joy and talent, then tossing them away, only to hire the next hopeful, starry-eyed schmuck to replace them.
Good cafeteria, nice benefits
Contolling, poor training, bad management, soul killing, old technology, miserable
Reynolds and Reynolds is a easy work place to work at but the Management sucks. Pay is very low as well. Work overtime as well but not all the time. You might have to work Saturday but only 5 hours but might only have to work only 2 Saturdays every 6 months not a of overtime.
Part-time Manufacturing Assistant (Current Employee) – College Station, TX – January 14, 2019
Great pay for a college part time job. Can set your own schedule which is nice for scheduling around classes. Supervisors that I've interacted with are very relaxed when it comes to schedule changes due to exams etc. HOWEVER, there's no promotions within part-time positions (the next step up is a full time position). In addition, favoritism runs rampant so some employees are fired without receiving any write-ups beforehand, while others are NOT fired after multiple write-ups. Also, the cell reception is practically non-existent. Some teams severely lack enough work to fill the required 15 hrs/week that are required for each person to reach, causing you to have to work incredibly slow or not at all (but upper management will frequently walk through so you must look busy even if your team has finished all of its work). In sum, this is a fine company for a part-time college job, but not much more than that.
Hardware Support Specialist - Frontline (Current Employee) – Dayton, OH – January 10, 2019
If you're looking to get your foot into the IT world, Reynolds and Reynolds is a fantastic START. Just don't get caught up in the culture and stay for too long. They will never pay you market value for your skills.
Each department flows differently and your experience overall will depend on that. Reynolds has an on site Gym, and offers classes as a part of the benefit of working there. Reynolds Dayton also has on site health clinic.
Software Support (Current Employee) – Houston, TX – January 3, 2019
Reynolds and Reynolds is an okay place to work. The salary is low, and the benefits are acceptable. The hours are flexible, and the only people that work overtime are those that have proven themselves to be hard workers. If you are an average worker, you won’t be expected to put in extra hours. The people there are really the best part of the job. There are plenty of clubs to join, and doing so is enjoyable. You meet a lot of great people. It’s a good start to a career.
Field Engineer (Former Employee) – Tampa, FL – November 10, 2018
I worked 10 years for Reynolds. Many miles of field support. Loved the job and only left when the company sold out to a competitor. They are a fantastic company though and I would recommend them to anyone.
