New to Australia at this stage...probably reasons why they are not in tune with their parent company style governance

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Costco Wholesale

ProsFair pay...if your the type who just wants a wage from a job
Good procedures and policies on paper (better still if they were implemented)
Relatively flexible work hours may be arranged

ConsExcellent strategy/business model but poor implementation which defeats the purpose
Little to no Training and development for staff and mid management
Absolute lack of communication at different levels of the business
Not technology savvy...time to upgrade.Look around, the nature of business is changing.Evolve!!

Advice to Senior ManagementLearn from your mistakes...it's extremely sad to see the same issues arise over and over again for a fortune 28 company.
Hire knowledge oriented Managers rather than pure dumb experience...a blend is key.
If you want your operations to run smooth...get back to your basics.People! Start by hiring the right people for the right position, grow and develop them for real.
Time for action and less talk.
