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

Pros

Great experience as I was promoted twice in 5 years. The people I worked with were great and made work enjoyable

Cons

Poorly managed, the leaders are all in-the-box white males that have no innovative thinking or even a clearly defined vision for that matter. We were constantly changing course and making last minute, hurried decision. The long-term strategic planning was non-existent.

Advice to Management

Take time to develop a strategic plan and stick with it. Don't give up when a plan doesn't turn the company around after 6 months.

    I worked at SUPERVALU full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Stable job. Got free training on multiple systems.

    Cons

    Bureaucracy. Top down decisions. 8 bosses in 10 years. IT leadership burning money to install unnecessary systems.

    Advice to Management

    You're a grocery chain. Stop trying to be a technology company. Listen to the people in the stores and who are directly supporting the stores.
