    I have been working at Publix full-time

    Pros

    Very stable and secure comapny with a traditional benefit package. The ESOP program gives you 7-11% of your salary in company stock every year. It's put into a retirement account. The real pro is the people. Great companies attract good people.

    Cons

    Pay outside of the Retail area of the business is average and the benefits are limited to what you would have expected in the 80s and 90s.

    Pros

    Flexible hours
    Upward mobility
    Good relationship with managers
    Chance to work in different departments
    Ability to learn about food safety and the free items you get for working there.

    Cons

    You have to be dedicated solely to this job
    No time for anything extra. Meaning if you're going to school and it's not for anything that will help you at publix, they don't care.

    Advice to Management

    Understand that people have issues. Things that are unavoidable. Don't fire people for being pregnant.
