I have been working at Genuine Parts

Pros

- Financially stable
- Never a difficulty scheduling time off
- Compensation and incentives are fair, clearly defined
- Difficult to get fired

Cons

- Status quo reigns supreme. Business model is a dinosaur attempting to stave off extinction with band-aids. creativity is always treated with hostility.

- Promotions, when available, are rarely posted and always given on social standing before credentials

- Management exists to defend management at all cost. HR bureaucracy exists to blame the victim and sweep management's serious violations under the rug. If it isn't criminal, the company doesn't care.

- No accountability at the district level at all. "Atlanta" (HQ) is always the scapegoat

- Compensation package, while mostly fair, has been severely pruned in recent years.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Modernize. Recruit from outside the organization. Take employee complaints seriously.

    I worked at Genuine Parts

    Pros

    Benefits are good; most of the people are really great; pay is OK; company seems to be moving in the right direction, but slowly

    Cons

    Employees need to feel appreciated; for most people, a job is a means to an end....not the end all, be all of life! The pay is OK until you realize some of the ridiculous salaries of the upper management; the good-old-boy network is alive and well at GPC

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the people who actually do the work
