    I have been working at SUPERVALU full-time

    Pros

    I work with a great team. People are very nice here and always willing to help. There are a lot of employees here that have been with the company for a very long time, they know their stuff.

    Cons

    Annual reviews should be done differently. It is very general and upper management is making decision based on a two sentence review. I think department management should be more involved in the annual review process.

    Pros

    Lots of areas to improve business and given freedom to try to solve problems.

    Cons

    Doesn't really foster innovation, likes the concept of new ideas but push back is guaranteed.

    Advice to Management

    Create a more fun environment, throw a social gathering someday.

    I have been working at SUPERVALU full-time

    Pros

    Very young and motivated workers. For the most part many employees are new with a positive attitude and a turn around mentality.

    Cons

    Traffic after work, sometimes slow in the work place with small work load.

    Advice to Management

    Keep going!

    Pros

    There were a lot of good people with good hearts who cared about the history and legacy of SUPERVALU or Albertsons stores.

    Cons

    Executive management was terrible and from what I hear is still terrible. The downfall of this company would be a great HBR of what not to do. Heard the same story over and over again. "This time is different" whether it be promotions, technology, partners, consultants, etc.

    Advice to Management

    You barter in goods, specifically food goods which is probably the 2nd oldest trade. There isn't a lot of innovation selling a banana. You either sell it cheap or have a nice store to mark up the price hoping people will still buy that same Dole banana at a higher cost when they can walk across the street and find it cheaper. You aren't Whole Foods and you aren't Wal-Mart. Figure that out and price accordingly.

    Management promotes the lazy and piles more work on the dedicated employees. The company seems to be growing, but...

    I have been working at SUPERVALU full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Fair wages. Flexible hours. 2 weeks sick time + 2 weeks of vacation to after 6 months.

    Cons

    Weird 401(k) matching. Lately there has not been any matching, this year they retroactively matched <2.5% if you had contributed at least 3.5%... No longer offering a pension. The health insurance offering is basically catastrophic coverage only. Company is surpassing profit projections but they keep cutting positions, giving paltry raises (1.32% this year) and now they're selling of parts of the business. The future doesn't seem promising for employees at Super.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize the people that actually work! Stop letting the lazy people get away with not doing their work, using sick time several times a week and shopping online at their desks constantly!
