I have been working at SUPERVALU full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

Decent benefits, fairly competitive wages... IT Management is fairly consistent and into progress albeit slowly. Shifting of customer and market outlook. Wayne Sales seems to be on the level and have a real grasp of what we needs to be done and may turn it around finally.

Cons

Gutting itself at the customer facing level to pay for executive salaries and perks. Its been overrun by a bloated bureaucratic system of upper management that is out to save its salaries, while sacrificing experience at middle management.

Need to reverse this trend soon.

    I worked at SUPERVALU full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    In marketing they had a flexible work environment where you can work from home, which I loved.

    Cons

    They have no real grasp of how to compete in the grocery business in this century. Until they start making serious changes to their business model they will not be able to compete. Merchandising runs the ship and until their focus on vendors instead of consumers changes, they cannot expect to change their trajectory.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change everything you're doing right now. Seriously, everything.

    I have been working at SUPERVALU full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Work/life balance. Generally able to know when you will be busy. Its a good place if you like consistent work and don't mind staying in the same position.

    Cons

    Not a lot a growth potential, salaries are not keeping up with market rates

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Even though the company is struggling you still need to pay attention to employee morale and keeping good people. Look into non-monetary ways to reward and compensate your employees if bonuses aren't possible. You can't turn around a struggling company with less than stellar employees to back it up.
