    I worked at Wegmans full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    - Corporate culture is excellent. You really get a sense that the company cares about you.
    - Work is meaningful, and employees have the ability to directly impact the company's mission
    - Managers notice talent and provide appropriate projects to ensure that work remains challenging.

    Cons

    - Pay can be on the lower side for IT professions
    - Company is medium sized, so growth opportunities are naturally constrained by the companies size. However, this will get better as the company experiences continued growth.

    I have been working at Wegmans part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Wegmans puts an emphasis on taking care of both their customers and their employees. It is very easy to get time off and there are definitely opportunities to move up in the company, if you want to.

    Cons

    As with any job there will always be other employees, including managers, that you don't like. Thankfully there seems to be a smaller percentage of them at Wegmans than at other places that I have worked. Dealing with customers can be very frustrating at times, especially when you are expected to be nice to them no matter what!

    I have been working at Wegmans full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The sky is the limit when it comes to training and learning new things
    Very supportive of creativity
    They will go above and beyond when an employee is in need professionally or personally.

    Cons

    Very tough to move from stores to corporate or vice versa
    Job posting system needs some retooling, should go back to promoting within department sometimes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's good to take a chance on promoting people. They used to be big on stories of cashiers becoming executives by working through the levels, now they want degrees for every job above customer service and are hiring more from outside first.
