Approves of CEO

I have been working at Costco Wholesale full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

People matter here. The culture is casual and job security is strong. Many managers and areas
take employee development to heart. There's a lot of opportunity to learn and grow. The company
takes its mission statement and Code of Ethics seriously.

Cons

If you're a woman, know the corporate environment is strongly male. Many people have held their positions for so long that the culture can feel complacent at times, depending on which area you work. Different areas can be competitive with one another and become siloed. Salary raises are capped at 3%. No vacation in the first year, unless specifically negotiated.

Advice to Management

Corporate employees should be more encouraged to change their roles and departments more
often to keep the organization nimble. Different areas should find ways to learn from one another.
