    Constant audits wasted productive time for needed accomplishments..
    District Manager had know personality and it was all about politics with the managers who had worked there longer. Training was horrible.

    I have been working at Safeway full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Strong work life balance and flexibility on schedules.

    Cons

    Culture does not promote people to take accountability, take risks, or to create positive change. Extremely bureaucratic and dysfunctional in the middle management layer.

    Advice to Management

    Need to reach deep through the layers and try to create a culture of openness and accountability. I have been here 5 years and seen lots of very talented people come and go (within IT) and most of them should have done well. f the company wants to retain talent and inspire and create positive change, it needs to cut fat from middle management and create a flatter organization in make sure there's transparency at all levels. Watch out for the problems with possible negative things that happen when big gaps in tenure is not managed...
