Worked there during a period of tremendous growth and change, which was both challenging and frustrating.

ProsThe member/owner customers are great, with tremendous diversity in geography, size and format.
This diversity presents a great opportunity to see many different aspects of the grocery industry, and is a great experience whether you choose to maintain a career there or eventually move on. The members really need what Topco has to offer them, and are unbelievable willing to work with Topco, so there is an opportunity for tremendous job satisfaction.

ConsThe organization's business model is extremely complex with multiple programs, (perishables, grocery, pharmacy etc.) interacting with many members. In order to address this complexity, they have developed separate functions for purchasing, programs, account management and now member services. Exactly how each of these groups should interact with members, suppliers, brokers etc. was never all that well defined, creating opportunities for mis-communication, overlaps and service gaps.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe former president was extremely conservative in his interactions with the employees, and I believe had a blind shot relative to many of these issues. I encourage the new administration to encourage more of a free flow of ideas, concerns etc. I believe that this approach will make for a more effective and efficient organization and a much better place to work.
