    Pros

    Wegmans is a company that actually believes in the values it preaches about doing the right thing for people, allowing a work/life balance, and placing family needs above your work when needed. Seemingly anywhere you go with this company you find kind, supportive folks to engage you and willingly offer to help you. Most people who work for Wegmans realize what a unique company it is and the benefits of a place that really cares about the individual and treats people the right way.

    Wegmans is privately held but the family that owns it takes a salary and reinvests the remaining profits back into the company. This means steady, manageable growth without the "profits or perish" approach required for a publicly traded company. There are 3-4 new stores opened each year in growing markets, and plenty of room for advancement through a steady stream of new job openings in virtually all business units.

    Cons

    The low pressure, seek-to-understand management that is prevalent in this company can be great for the individual, but also means the performance of bottom performers is often overlooked or ignored completely. Though the company can make rapid changes when needed or useful, some large-scale decisions are made by a select group at the top and don't always factor in advice from lower rungs of the organization. This leads to some inefficiencies that are difficult if impossible to overcome, and some of these decisions last for years. This also may be attributed to the privately held status of the company, as there is little incentive to remove these inefficiencies if your budget is acceptable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on increased feedback. Setting up feedback loops from the top of the organization down to entry level employees would help address the areas of improvement and further strengthen morale.

    Pros

    Fairly low pressure environment, pay is good especially for a recent college grad. Somewhat flexible schedule. Growing company and literally no chance of getting fired.

    Cons

    Not much room to advance also seems like only requirement to promote is to become friends with your boss since Wegmans has no performance metric in place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop turning a blind eye to underperforming and lazy managers.
