Featured Review
"Blinds"Oct 29, 2020

Current Employee - Csa Window& Walls

I have been working at Lowe's part-time for more than 5 years

Pros

They have very flexible hours.

Cons

Hard to move departments or up.

"Part of a family"Nov 23, 2020

Current Employee - Senior Data Analyst

I have been working at Giant Eagle full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Although Giant Eagle has many locations and thousands of employees, you are still appreciated as an individual and valued -- just like family. Giant Eagle actively promotes inclusion and diversity... rather than simply paying lip service to these values. Because Giant Eagle is a privately held company, it has the ability to make strategic decisions beyond the next quarterly earnings report, but Giant Eagle is also small enough to move with an agility and swiftness that publicly traded behemoths cannot match.

Cons

Data sharing and input across divisions within the company could be more streamlined.

Advice to Management

A comprehensive approach to documenting and maintaining policies and procedures, although onerous, would improve efficiency.
