I worked at Publix full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Always profitable, employee stock ownership program, job security

Cons

Corporate positions require long work hours; salaried pay structure for most includes a "bonus" paid in December which is essentially a pro-rated 13th month's pay (i.e., a $60k a year salary is $4615/month for Jan-Dec with a "bonus" of $4615 paid in December if associate remains employeed through year end). The strategy allows the company to retain cash and employee loyalty. Culture is unique - at times cultish. Must be born and bred within the company to move up.

Advice to Management

Salaries are not competitive when compared to industry standards
