    Very Smart group of managers, well compensated and driven to perform. Finance guys keep a tight reign on costs.

    I worked at Motorcar Parts full-time

    Pros

    It's a professionally run company with brilliant minds at the helm.

    Cons

    Unfortunately some people in middle management work will less than honorable ulterior motives of self preservation. There is an inner circle in the marketing department that have upper management's naive ears. Be careful when you're working here. "Watch your back Jack" -( Clear and Present Danger)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value your soldiers as much as your generals. Listen to both sides.

    I have been working at Motorcar Parts full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The work is simple, the hours are flexible, the work environment is friendly, working conditions are good in the office.

    Cons

    No upward mobility in the Accounting department, no salary increases unless you ask for them and they are in the low range, annual bonus is $100 minus payroll taxes even if you've worked there 15 yrs. No chance of overtime or merit increases. Supervisors and Managers are only looking out for themselves.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize talent, promote and reward it.

    I have been working at Motorcar Parts

    Pros

    Employees ARE the biggest asset here. The CEO lives that. Managers have adopted the same outlook.

    Cons

    Too lean, trying to do too much with not enough employees causes stress. Being a public company means no rear view mirror, only what have you done for me lately.

    Pros

    You get to learn a lot if you really like challenges. Time is money, and spending time to work on something you like gets rewarded.

    Cons

    Work schedules too darn early! When something goes down, you can't just give up, you HAVE to finish it; but this is expected of you, so it's not a con if you think about it., it's expected of you.
