    I have been working at SUPERVALU

    Pros

    Nearly impossible to get fired (though not outsourced)
    Decent compensation, though they keep cutting bonuses, etc.
    Medical benefits are average or slightly below average
    Some talented people, though most top talent in IT has left the company

    Cons

    Management above director level is mostly clueless about what people do.

    Upper management is a revolving door. Expect a new CIO and CEO every few years with "new" strategies that they bring.

    Lack of nearly any kind of standards

    Management does not trust staff, tends to trust consultants more than employees.

    Company suffers from much "analysis paralysis" and moves quite slowly.

    Company generally has a penny-wise, pound foolish approach

    Very little long-term thinking, strategies are very short-term and change often

    Heavily offshoring as much IT as possible, future seems poor for onshore (US) IT staff

    Morale quite low among workers, most just doing enough to get by

    There are some bright people, but lots of average or below-average talent. Supervalu doesn't really attract top talent, and if they do they don't stay long due to reasons above.

    Lots of legacy IT hardware and software that company will not spend money on to modernize.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Enable employees in practice. Standardize environments. Develop management that truly understands their area. Be honest with employees and they will reward you with loyalty.

    I have been working at SUPERVALU

    Pros

    - Good place to start your career to get the "corporate or office" experience
    - Supervisors are generally ok with requesting time off
    - You really can learn some things and get experience when you push for it

    Cons

    - The pay is low $13.50 and is hourly unless you get an Experienced position
    - Most of the work is data entry and you are treated as if you are only a clerk
    - Very difficult to move up, growth structure is limited.
    - Benefits take 6 months before you are elgible

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    INVEST IN YOUR WILLING YOUNG EMPLOYEES!! The best employees leave as soon as they find their way out, others feel stuck. They need to get rid of the hourly and develop their talent.
