Benefits have been a bit of a roller coaster ride and the cost goes up significantly every year. It pretty much feels like your annual merit increase is lost on the increasing cost of health insurance.
I worked at Peapod full-time (Less than a year)
Nice physical workspace. Large monitors and weekly fruit delivered. Some really cool developers and quality assurance testers but their has been significant turnover.
Antiquated technology stack with a code base that is not very well maintained. Lots of refactoring needs to take place but don't have the resources to make it happen. Catch-22 situation that probably requires hiring consultants to clean things up or start over. Some of the development managers need to improve their people skills.
Advice to Management
My perception of the founders are that they are happy with sale of the company and are in their position to occupy their time. The sense of urgency to compete is not there. Improve your technology to remain relevant in the marketplace otherwise Amazon will eat your lunch even in markets that you are established in.
