    I worked at Genuine Parts Company full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Top quality parts and supplies. Well known national name recognition.

    Cons

    Corporate Headquarters management that truly has no real understanding of the local business needs for each area independently. They try to be a cookie cutter type company without true success

    Advice to Management

    Eliminate 50% of the corporate management and managers overseeing managers because there are top many management positions that like to micromanage from a corporate room that truly wander if the corporate office has windows for those making decisions to know anything remotely about the auto parts business .

    I have been working at Genuine Parts Company full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The employees try really hard.

    Cons

    Mid and upper manager are clueless. "Promote from within" so you end up with Inbred relationship of people who don't know anything but the company culture. Security out of control. Can't spell "Best Practices". Anyone who has any breadth of experience will feel stifled here.

    Advice to Management

    Time to nut up or shut up. Need some control from above to allow the IT department to mature. ITIL? What's that? Don't let headcount reduction be your solution to an inability to make money.

    I worked at Genuine Parts Company full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    First year, raises every 3 months, good benefits

    Cons

    Management does not care about people in their departments but instead how they can look better to the Executives and above. Not sure how some executives are still there when most of their department is gone due to the executive. Best part about leaving was the stress was left behind.

    Advice to Management

    Care about your employees health instead of what kind of numbers you can receive from sales. Employees working late and on weekends and no time with family. Family life is important to everyone.
