    I worked at SUPERVALU full-time

    Pros

    SUPERVALU was a very good place to work, friendly people, GREAT managers and flexible hours and was close to home.

    Cons

    SUPERVALU did not have much room to advance into a manage position unless you had some kind of certification in hand.

    Advice to Management

    SUPERVALU if you train your employees good enough to do the management positions a paper certificate should not matter for advancement.

    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.
