    I worked at SUPERVALU full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great leadership and excellent teamwork with peers. Opportunity to really support a great retail organization. Technologies are fairly mature. Some great talent and expertise to work alongside.

    Cons

    The Albertsons/Supervalu merger looked good on paper but execution was challenging. The merger in IT went fairly well. The rest of the organization struggled with changes. The health benefits could have been better

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate more quickly. The Boise to Eden Prairie divide was challenging. Improve the benefits for corporate workers versus the regular store employees.

    I worked at SUPERVALU full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Company culture was great before Albertsons acquisition. Senior management cared about the rank and file. Employees were treated with respect.

    Cons

    It changed dramatically after the Albertsons acquisition and more so after the divesture. A tremendous amount of work required on those employees that remained. No incentives were given to maintain morale – with minimal to no pay raises; pensions were frozen because they” improved” the 401k plan – but then they took away the company 401k match.

    Pros

    Great coworkers, who helped each other as much as possible.

    Cons

    Too many bosses and not enough workers. The managers from Director and higher have a sense of entitlement which undermines the moral of workers. When we're told to work harder because their bonus is based on our hitting the budgeted numbers, it's hard to take them serious. They have no concern for the retailers, just their bonuses.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try working with the people in your department instead of threatening them. I heard more than once, "If you can't hit the numbers, I'll find someone who can." Well, after the consolidation in to Hopkins, if seems you couldn't find the right people and now you're suffering.

    Pros

    Good people at store level.

    Cons

    New management strategy is not working. Only answer is to get rid of people and keep hammering unsuccessful strategy. Sales are down, customer count is down, customer service scores are down, and gross profit is down.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Study how a banner was successful in the past. Make changes to improve banner. Don't make changes just because that is what all the other banners are doing.
