    Pros

    Stable company that has been around for a long time.

    Cons

    Projects are not managed to scope, time, cost, or quality. Delivery dates are routinely extended, sometimes indefinitely, and the final delivered product is usually reduced in scope. Management has no qualms with standing up in a status meeting and ensuring both participants and customers alike that they are indeed following the highest ISO quality standards even with the full knowledge that generally, fully developed and written requirements do not actually exist. Career development, training, and promotions generally held for good-ole-boys and a select few that are willing to tow the company line. Extremely high turnover over the last several years and poor morale. Employee surveys taken every other year or so but no real changes follow ...

    Advice to Management

    Face the truth regarding the efforts needed to deliver the products. Be truthful in communicating to both customers and employees.

    Loved the people in all levels of the company! The company is established and not going any where.

    Cons

    The money wasn't the best.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate with everyone in the company with the same information. Take care of your retirees! The company was built by them!

    Pros

    Great management, good pay and the company has great respect for work/life balance. If you need to take time for something, GPC is always willing to work with you.

    Cons

    Quotas can be very demanding at times, and everything at GPC is about quotas. In the sales side, can be very long grueling hours just to close deals. Lots of travel required.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!

    Pros

    Independence is encouraged, but not without giving light to the benefit of teamwork. Room to grow and move up within position.

    Cons

    Training leave much to be desired at times.

    Advice to Management

    Increase more hands-on training, not just for the job title, but also for software usage for business efficiency.

    Pros

    I have worked for GPC for seven years in their Shared Services IT department. Compensation is OK. Flexible time. Work from home (one day a week). Location is good.

    Cons

    Every year in the past 4 years I have been thinking of leaving, but because of some personal reasons I am still with them. I know that by default women in the technology industry are not appreciates as they ought to be, but GPC is horrible in this regard. Obvious discrimination in terms of salary and promotions, and when management is confronted they can't give you any answers. No career growth opportunities. Everybody is talking about change, but nothing is changing. 2 weeks of vacation unless you have been with the company for 7 years. No diversity except for the contractors. Management/Company is stuck in the 70s.
