    Neutral Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Costco Wholesale full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Opportunity for advancement - most are promoted from within - very good benefits, strong community presence and reputation, steady growth, great people, option of moving to locations worldwide, respect for diversity

    Cons

    Inconsistent communication (in warehouses) with little access to educational opportunities, mainly if not a supervisor or manager, inconsistent and inflexible work schedules, little encouragement and mentoring from management, high potential for physical injury due to large, heavy merchandise and often frenetic pace

    Advice to Management

    Jim has always stressed "growing our employees" - at the warehouse level - supervisor and below at least, there is very little guidance/education provided to employees in regard to career options and paths, company philosophy regarding merchandising, and access to accurate benefit explanation.
