    Pros

    Compensates very well for the work performed

    Cons

    Does not value education or work environment, instead opting to cut corners in the name of efficiency and numbers like labor/productivity, members per hour, average basket, and member upgrades.

    Advice to Management

    Company culture starts at the top and works its way down. For blatent disregard of training and osha standards as well as employment laws to be as rampant as it is in the warehouse level as it is, it can only reflect a blind eye from upper managment. Any building operating above $1100/ hour labor needs to be suspect, let along productivity figures at 15-1700/hr.

    Pros

    working for Costco brand. Located in issaquah. Free 4 pounds of turkey meat during christmas time

    Cons

    senior IT people have no good knowledge on the areas they are working. work area looks congested as 4 people need to share the same space with out minimum walls No free food. There are 3 food eating cafterias, but a medium healthy lunch will cost 7$ on average and if you eat outside the same food will cost 9$. No free drinks, a soda will cost 75Cents on average. No enough car parking and you will get headache everyday to find a near place, or you need to park at a mile distance and come to your desk in walking in cold. Ok forget about food. Even I do not see any increments in salary for good programming and technical skills in my 1.5 year term. Most part is wearhouse culture.

    Advice to Management

    need to do some work in recognizing talent
