Pros

Brand name recognition, evolving customer understanding, First hand observation of the auto parts industry evolution

Cons

Manpower restrictions and limitations on hours and wages, tedious business micromanagement, impossible bonus structure, stagnant wages

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Remind yourself as to the core values of business. Read and enforce your own policies or change them. Don't chant about business integrity and not abide by it. Promote from within.
