    Pros

    Team members. Benefits and initial pay.

    Cons

    Hard to get a raise, company is condensing jobs, hard to move up.

    Advice to Management

    This company definitely plays favorites. It also pays well at first, but makes it hard to get a raise or move up unless you're a favorite. Doesn't acknowledge TMs for going above and beyond.

    Pros

    Great work environment, great people. They want you to succeed here and give you the tools to do so.

    Cons

    New ordering system means some products are constantly out of stock which is frustrating when dealing with customers. Also, about half of the customers that Whole Foods draws are the most entitled people you've ever met.

    Pros

    Great company who stands by living a healthy lifestyle. Lots of great benefits such as employee discount, employee moral, casual dress code.

    Cons

    No work life balance. Taking time off is not as flexible. You have to work most holidays. The manager I work under does not promote work life balance like other departments. My advice is to ask questions before you make a decision to join the company.

    Advice to Management

    Give your employees work life balance
