    Pros

    You are unwilling or unable to think for yourself and prefer when someone else does your thinking for you. Kudos to Safeway for it's Diversity Initiative. Now they have a multi-gender, multi-cultural group of clones in local store management. Paint the puppets any color you wish, they're still puppets.

    Cons

    Arrogance of upper management towards new thoughts or ideas. The shareholder is king, the customer is an afterthought.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your customers. Don't believe that there is one solution to all problems and that you discovered it in the 1990s. Customers change, tastes change and not every city in America shops for food in the same way. Superior Service / World Class Service, etc. is a shortcut to finding people who actually care about your customers. Safeway has a disregard for thought and innovation and does not trust its own people.
