I worked at Kroger part-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

They were flexible with my school schedule, Valued good work ethics, Employee discount was nice, Crazy customers, fairly nice culture, Most of the employees were friendly nice and helpful.

Cons

Raises based on length of service can create an apathetic attitude among coworkers, Upper management (outside the store) did silly things sometimes, Crazy customers, Not labeling the axis on charts, You often have to pick up others slack if you are a good worker.

Advice to Management

Give more power to your store level management. I often saw incredibly wasteful strategies employed by upper management.

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Kroger full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits, some really excellent software architects and engineers. CEO seems very nice and most people like him.

    Cons

    Heavy processes stifle innovation and productivity. Senior IT management lacks focus and mid-level management seems to often fall-in and rarely challenges questionable decisions from the top.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to attract and retain software craftsmen to build and architect software solutions and allow their passion and experience to lead the IT team towards faster agile processes, better integration, and higher quality.
