    I have been working at Genuine Parts

    Pros

    Great benefits, new management pushing to be more innovative in technology, bringing new employees to build the up the environment, a lot of the legacy lifetime employees are starting to see if they stay complacent, change will be made.

    Cons

    A lot of politics but that's with any organization, no other cons at the moment

    Advice to Management

    Stop the politicking and get the work done, listen to your employees she suggestions are made on how to improve

    I worked at Genuine Parts full-time

    Pros

    There is lots of room for career growth. If you know what you are doing, management allows you to explore changes that will allow you and your team to work more efficiently.

    Cons

    Does not pay enough. Salaried employees end up working 50+ hours a week. The subsidiaries control the parent company, instead of the other way around. This minimizes standardization and the efficiencies that come with it.

    Advice to Management

    Give more value to the employees that are willing to change for the better instead of the ones that have been there the longest. Many of the ones that have been there longer were against change because "this is the way we've always done it".

    I have been working at Genuine Parts for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Higher than average pay for the industry(IT)

    Cons

    Multiple managers, policy's change on a daily/weekly basis without notification. Lots of bullying.

    Advice to Management

    Treat people like people, not just resources. Choose a plan and go with it, don't just toss everything in and tell your people to handle it. Follow ITIL process, don't just use it as a label.

    I worked at Genuine Parts full-time

    Pros

    Company car, expense account, reasonable wages. Meeting, assisting and training different people on a daily basis. Not being stuck in an office. Potential for advancement.

    Cons

    Current reduction of forces; therefore; cutting back on personnel and limited opportunities for hiring.

    Advice to Management

    Profit margins are not the only considerations in running a successful business. Personnel are the backbone of the Company and their livelihoods should be more carefully considered.

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

    Pros

    Flexible work hours Occasional jeans days

    Cons

    Since upper management change in 2015, the company is only looking at the bottom line rather than the contributing factors or root causes. Mass layoffs and outsourcing are causing a steady decline in customer and worker satisfaction.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on the intelligent, mature workers who are there to actually get the work done and clean house of the ones who don't work and only cause problems. Promote people based on their abilities rather than based on their popularity.
