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

    Pros

    I’ve been supported by leadership in exploring many opportunities that have allowed me to make meaningful contributions to the company and my career.

    Cons

    We sometimes struggle to get out of our own way: operating in silos; insufficiently considering the people who operate our stores in the design of programs or systems; maintaining the complex processes, behaviors, and systems of the past instead of scrapping them for better. But these realities create the space for the opportunity to make an impact.

    Advice to Management

    Simplify, simplify, simplify.
