I worked at Peapod full-time (less than a year)

Pros

Low stress work life. Leave on time almost every day.
Nice people.
Good learning opportunities.

Cons

I have nothing bad to say about working here, I honestly have no complaints. My only reason for leaving was to persue something more along my interest lines and cut commute time in half. I guess the fact that it's in Skokie and not Chicago is a con for city people.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The Agile system is good, even though it's not 100% fleshed out yet.

    Former Employee - Senior QA Analyst in Skokie, IL

    I worked at Peapod full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Very friendly top executives, Good office space, good fun events, friendly co-workers, good food, good healthcare & other benefits

    Cons

    Unappreciative and unfriendly manager, judgmental , no appreciation for hard work, lacks leadership skills, not open to suggestions , follows old and unsuccessful procedures. shows favoritism by offering special benefits only to long term employees. No training , No growth , very low raise & bonus , no team-building efforts, not a fun team to work. Lot of things are left at manager's discretion.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should find out why there is a high turnover and do everything possible to retain good employees. Establish a visible pay-scale / promotions criteria . Peapod is a very nice company to work. The founders and top-executives are very good. QA team just doesn't have a healthy work environment.
