I worked at Giant Eagle full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Friendly management, lots of exposure and lots of new ways to learn provided that you can teach yourself.

Cons

No accountability for anyone - bad team leaders are just transferred and problems are just kicked around instead of solved. Priorities for the company have become very misguided and pay scale is out of line for impactful positions.

Advice to Management

Learn to identify the top performers, and then get rid of the dead weight. Too many new initiatives that drive up overhead - we are selling groceries and the simpler we can make it, the better the company will be as a whole.
