What are perks and other benefits like at Southeastern Grocers?

Pros

Working with my specific department team is great, we understand each other well and there are many ways which we support each other daily. From what I understand, this type of team-comraderie is throughout the company. There is a willingness on the part of next-level managers to listen to input from lower employees. Feedback, input, listening, and overall communication is good on the team level.

Cons

The company as a whole does not seem overly interested in investing in their employees and instead puts up appearances of caring. Poor starting benefits, no transparency on pay for different positions, very limited ways for employees to provide feedback. Executive level team does not understand the positions of those that they are supposed to be leading. No internal promotions, people have to jump from department to department in order to grow their careers. Upper level managers especially do not seem to be promoted from within. That in itself creates more miscommunication as people brought in from outside cannot understand why issues happen and don't set realistic expecations.

Advice to Management

Focus less on events as a form of employee appreciation. Employees want to be appreciated through salary, time off, and flexible work schedules. Managers should be sure they understand why issues happen before making recommendations for solutions. Improve bottom-up communication so that everyone in different departments feel like their voice actually matters, not just that you say it matters.
