    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Whole Foods Market full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    - No "managers", only leaders who are team members too. Equality instead of hierarchy. I don't see my CEO terribly often, but when I do we're on a first-name basis even though we have 70,000 employees. I DO see my regional president often and he always makes an effort to stay connected with all of us on a personal level which is wonderful.
    - High standards for performance keep me challenged
    - Feels like a family
    - Freedom to make decisions and operate my team like a small business
    - Great discount and Healthy Eating discount program; great benefits.

    Cons

    - Retail schedule: different shift times on different days, and no regular days off. No holiday time at Christmas.
    - High level of mental engagement required which is good, except that it's hard to leave my thoughts at work. "Work mode" difficult to switch off.
