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

Pros

The company uses Great Technology which help with everyday operations. This company is pioneer in its field; I haven't seen anything like it in any part of the country.

Cons

Upper Managements lack of understanding of what the real issues are at the ground level. The industry is very demanding.

    I worked at Peapod full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Low stress work life. Leave on time almost every day.
    Nice people.
    Good learning opportunities.

    Cons

    I have nothing bad to say about working here, I honestly have no complaints. My only reason for leaving was to persue something more along my interest lines and cut commute time in half. I guess the fact that it's in Skokie and not Chicago is a con for city people.

    Advice to Management

    The Agile system is good, even though it's not 100% fleshed out yet.

    I worked at Peapod full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Very friendly top executives, Good office space, good fun events, friendly co-workers, good food, good healthcare & other benefits

    Cons

    Unappreciative and unfriendly manager, judgmental , no appreciation for hard work, lacks leadership skills, not open to suggestions , follows old and unsuccessful procedures. shows favoritism by offering special benefits only to long term employees. No training , No growth , very low raise & bonus , no team-building efforts, not a fun team to work. Lot of things are left at manager's discretion.

    Advice to Management

    Management should find out why there is a high turnover and do everything possible to retain good employees. Establish a visible pay-scale / promotions criteria . Peapod is a very nice company to work. The founders and top-executives are very good. QA team just doesn't have a healthy work environment.
