    Steady, but improving

    Proud to have been an employee

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Atlanta, GA

    ProsFamily atmosphere
    Long career opportunity
    History in marketplace and reputation
    Financially stable

    ConsToo many band aids on systems
    Will talk the talk about changing or adapting to market, won't walk the walk
    Lack of respect and unwillingness to consider new ideas around strategy
    Lack of communication about opportunities

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to be who GPC is, a strong competitor with employees who love the company, it's history. Embrace change as a way to maintain position and grow.
