    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

    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.
