    I have been working at Safeway full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    People are generally friendly and capable. Work hours are okay. Very nice gym. Employment is stable.

    Cons

    There are too many layers of management who often tend to manage up rather than develop and look out for their team. The environment is very political and people like to protect their turf. Most operations focus on short-term objectives. Terrible health benefits and pay tends to be on the low end. Very old school in the way the company is run, reflected by the formal dress code of shirts and ties. Employees are rewarded by getting the occasional opportunity to go casual!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Restructure to take out layers of management. From the top down, build in objectives to invest in, develop and mentor their teams and create 360 degree reviews. Develop a culture that is faster moving and innovative - take some cues from the high tech sector.
