    Pros

    Great coworkers Great pay Somewhat flexible scheduling Off Christmas / Easter Half day on thanksgiving You can always move your way up

    Cons

    Scheduling when new people are hired. I've learned that the managers don't know how to equally distribute hours between the partners. So everyone starts searching for hours like crazy.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure everything at the register is working properly.

    Pros

    Large, successful business Great salary and benefits Good job security

    Cons

    IT management is political and uncaring Too many consultants interfering with too many things

    Advice to Management

    Stop being so political and start caring about your people. HEB has some really great people working there. Engage with them, communicate with them, and take their concerns to heart. A good leader serves the people underneath them. Stop being so politically calculating, short-sighted, and selfish.
