I worked at Whole Foods Market part-time (Less than a year)

Pros

John Mackey is an amazing CEO, and he's structured his company in an unusual way. But it works. I've never felt so supported by a company's bureaucracy before or since. Institutionally, it's very healthy.

Cons

Same as any retail gig; many of your coworkers are lame, and many of your managers a re lame people who've been there for a long time.

Advice to Management

Keep on keepin' on.
