    I worked at Advance Auto Parts full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Well balanced and solid IT leadership team. The IT Leadership team really worked hard to understand their business partners while striking the balance of innovating.

    Cons

    A few fire drills, and management had to "grow" to understand what needed to happen. The company has a lot of legacy and old systems, so there are some definite challenges in staying "up to date" on new technology while simultaneously supporting the old.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Understand the business at a deeper level. Senior management should really attempt to understand the customer as well. The leadership in MI felt disconnected from the Roanoke team.

    Pros

    Very fast paced
    Knowledgeable teams
    Excellent Training

    Cons

    This company was great until they started micro managing everything we do in the store. Why have managers if all they do is carry out tasks and not actually manage.
