I worked at Genuine Parts

Pros

Great working atmosphere and co workers, many friends made working there. Great bonus program expecially EOY.

Cons

Very demanding houres one cannot balance personal life and professional career with expectations to succed with company basically all take and no give. Management tries to motivate with intimdation very little praise given. Promotions given "good ole boys club" fashion.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Your only as good as your people, you are losing many years of experiance. Open your eyes and stop being so proud.......for the sake of the company's future.

    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.
