    Pros

    The employees are awesome! There are some really good professionals here and the environment can be a fun place to work. The salary and benefits are good and the company is growing and prospering.

    Cons

    There's a lack of planning and communication causing disorganization. Managers tend to micromanage including upper management. There's not much trust shown below the managerial level. Good employee suggestions tend to ring over deaf ears. At times, the company can be "cheap" on acquiring needed resources.

  8. "So close to 5 stars, but...."

    StarStarStarStarStar
     

    I have been working at S.P. Richards

    Pros

    SPR People are awesome! Stable, conservative and financially strong company with good benefits, moderate freedom to take ownership of a job and seek best career path. Fairly diverse business model, with parent and sister companies that offer some additional connections for future growth. Great B2B reputation and within the community.

    Cons

    Lack of support to cultivate, reward and/or incentivize great employees which creates a culture of demotivated employees. Efforts being made to address are sporadic and a bit slow- often feeling more reactive instead of feeling proactive. Not exactly forward thinking when it comes to family, but nothing extreme or dark ages either. To some extent "family friendliness" or "flexibility" varies by department and manager... and of course, the employee. SPR has been slow to even consider looking for new footing on safe ground for any kind of "official" policy changes in this arena.

    Pros

    The company is financially secure and business is on the uptick. There is a feeling of genuine concern from Executive leadership team. Good benefits. Has strong ties to owner Genuine Parts. Overall, this a good company to work for and it's very stable.

    Cons

    Leadership needs to do a better job of communicating core strategies to all employees. There is not a lot of room for advancement unless you're in sales.

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at S.P. Richards

    Pros

    good pay for no education needed, good benefits

    Cons

    get the feeling they set you up to fail as a team, not concerned about your outside life, time off, management seems to be about themselves, upper management all about profit. Cash happy yet laid people off, now we are constantly short people and getting overtime.
