    I worked at SUPERVALU (More than a year)

    Pros

    Small office environment with lots of responsibilities. Very fast paced and hard to keep up with work load. Sales is key.

    Cons

    Leadership not in sync with workforce at the division level. Expectations unreasonably high for amount of staff allotted to get the job done.

    Advice to Management

    Come to grips with reality of the situation and stop the revolving door of people. New systems won't fix your problems of lacking sales.

    I have been working at SUPERVALU full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Opportunity:
    You will learn a lot, while working with great people. My experience is that they are very family friendly, and try hard to accommodate you when you need time off.

    Cons

    Compensation:
    The compensation is fairly low for hourly employees (which unfortunately is too common in the Retail industry), and annual raises are negligible. Example: 23 cents per hour raise on a $23.00/hr job. I am aware of several full-time, long term employees who have part-time 2nd jobs to help make ends meet.

    Advice to Management

    Discontinue the employee self-review. It takes up work-time, and doesn't accomplish much because employee annual raises are decided the previous year during budget preps. It is disheartening and seems like busy-work.

    I worked at SUPERVALU full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Independence, younger, motivated developers to work with. Once you know what you're doing, you're the freedom to do whatever you need to do to get the job done.

    Cons

    A bit understaffed, it can be hard to get face time with someone when you have questions or issues. Starting is severely painful in getting logins working and getting up to speed.

    Advice to Management

    Introduce people to the rest of the teams and have weekly meetings face to face with everyone incorporated so that they feel comfortable asking others for information or help.

    On the job training, 2 weeks vacation, sick time,

    Cons

    Unfair advantage to employees that has parents & other relatives working to higher positions.

    Promotions should be based on performance, not who management likes to hang out with, or who has a relative in a high position.

    Super team players Huge Company Location Time off is flexable

    Company changes directions with the wind....sales...profits....customer service....Each department has silos and wall built so nothing can get done between them because everyone is afraid of loosing power in the political struggle.

    Advice to Management

    Get out of the glass offices and see what is going on. Read and respond to employee surveys
