I have been working at Costco Wholesale full-time (Less than a year)

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.

    I have been working at Costco Wholesale as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Large multiple cafeterias, nice buildings, CEO's office is visible.

    Cons

    IT people with no programming skills. They have promoted people from parts buyer to IT analyst.

    Advice to Management

    Promote from within is good, but have to hire some from the outside. Don't just hire the outside as temps or for projects to do the hardwork.
