    Pros

    Flex time. You have a window of time to come and go. However, very strict about having to take at least a 30 minute lunch.

    Cons

    Unorganized management. Management changes procedures and policies without fully understanding job functions.

    Advice to Management

    Put more time in developing and training people.

    Pros

    Nothing... "PLS"... "PLS" "PLS" do not join if you were offered Network or Security Job. You will be suffer from very first day.

    Cons

    You MUST be at work 08:00 and you have no permission to leave until 05:00PM. No work from home. This company living in 60s or 70s and People who working even Technical jobs treated as unprofessionally. They always talk about "Culture" come-on GPC Making a better place to work is the "Culture". Look at Google, Amazon, Facebook how their work environment looks like, learn from them and at least try. Most importantly Stop thinking about "Cheap" labor. Please Don't join you will be treated "CHEAP" as their policies.

    Advice to Management

    Shame on your Management team... Think about it GPC need top level talents to take company to the next level. Losing them is not an option for company's growth.

    Pros

    Good benefits, profit sharing, insurance, 401 retirement and discount on parts purchases. Always something to learn and endless product offerings to sell.

    Cons

    Corporate mentality that is out of touch with the needs of their customers. The company could be 10x what it is if it had competent management and understood customer service.

    Advice to Management

    Poor management starts at the top down and the people at the lower rungs of the ladder can only be as good as the management above allows them to be. The business model is antiquated and lacks progressive vision.

    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.

    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.
