I worked at Genuine Parts full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Company has made great strides in becoming up to date with technology. Culture is conservative, but VERY friendly. People come first not just in talk, but in practice. Management is not oblivious. Most employees are very driven and very loyal. Promotion from within is very likely. Many diverse areas of work and is somewhat easy to move to a new position/department.

Cons

Things change slowly (large corporation). More red tape than is needed. Slower to adapt to new technologies. Sometimes does not understand when to kill a project and start over. Career development can be tough to get from management.

Advice to Management

Keep treating people the way you want to be treated. There is a reason people work there so long. You guys are a monolith in the market, put some innovation into the space .

    I have been working at Genuine Parts full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Stable, traditional company that has been around forever. Conservative financial management that moves slow and don't take many risks.

    Cons

    The company was innovative in the early years (from the 20's maybe to the 70's) but successive management got content giving maintenance to the "status quo" hence the total lack of imagination I believe will make this company become a new Kmart. The business model is changing and current management will never be able to react to it. Very old school and stuck in the past with a very high opinion of themselves.

    Advice to Management

    New blood is needed to revitalize or change an old business model before is too late.
