Pros

Great benefits, strong focus on core business, big on work/life balance (at least at my level), and they believe that employees are important and they back it up with more than just words (think compensation and promotion opportunities).

Cons

Strong sense of tradition has a bit of a downside (although I think it's positives outweigh it's negatives). Namely, having warehouse experience is very important. If you haven't worked in one it will put you at a disadvantage.

Advice to Management

Keep doing what you are doing and keep Jim's flame burning.

    It's a good place to work, for retail, but your job title is just a title...

    Pros

    Higher retail wages & salaries, good insurance and benefits, strong financial rating, reputable company name, higher income status of shoppers, open door policy, simple business ideas and basic ways of doing things

    Cons

    Retail hours, somewhat of a dictatorship from the General Manager at the warehouse level, not very open minded to new ideas, archaic but somewhat reliable IT and technology systems

    Advice to Management

    Warehouse General Managers are somewhat dictators, close-minded, and follow only policies and rules that they choose to follow. Employee agreement handbook is there for a reason and policies should be followed consistently. If you want to move up within the Company, a salaried manager is nearly required to work 60+ hours a week during non-holidays and even more during them just to show "dedication" to your job and the Company. Upper management constantly wants you to put Costco above your family.
