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

    Pros

    privately owned, so true emphasis on making the best decision for the business, not from quarterly earnings pressure;

    Cons

    Top heavy; need alignment across multiple areas; and in transition to scaling processes/systems/people expectations from private company culture to large accountability bases culture (so growing pains expected). Planning organization not as strongly valued vs other large retail companies. Vacation time very behind times for experienced leaders.

    Pros

    Good job, enjoy the work. I feel challenged and there are some travel perks. The people are really great and all are very nice.
