Great philanthropy and people are very friendly. Products are great and stores are beautiful.

Very old technology and old school management style. Trust and Fairness is an issue.

Need to give employees the loyalty that you ask employees to give.

    Pros

    Great people within and across departments. New management is finally taking root and direction is being set. It is yet to be seen how the current changes will affect the company from both a shareholder and an employee (those that remain) perspective.

    Cons

    Safeway has suffered from a lot of the "old boys club" syndrome. Some management has been stuck doing the same old thing giving in to fear of change or rocking the boat. But everything is changing, and the company needs to get through the current growing (right-sizing?) pains, and see how things settle out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It is very disruptive to have your workforce speculating over what is coming for a year and a half while a new CEO, CFO, CIO, and many other members of senior management come and go, and then settle into their roles.
