    Work can be fun!

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) San Bruno, CA

    ProsWho said work couldn't be fun? There are many challenges here, and while the vibe is very hard-working in this time of ultimate growth, the teams manage to keep a respectable work/life balance and always remember to have fun and laugh along the way. I love it here!

    The perks are great: a very competitive salary, stock options, bonus potential, free lunch on fridays, free popcorn daily, free parking, your own laptop, subsidized cafeteria meals, cheap vending machine options, an on-site gym with gym classes available, etc.

    Employee retention is important to any business, and Walmart eCommerce knows how to keep me happy.

    ConsI don't know of any cons.....

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep it up! Continue to recognize your employees (respecting their work/life balance and having social events, rewarding employees with comp time, celebrating birthdays/holidays/welcomes/departures, etc.

    Walmart Ecommerce - A Sleeping Giant

    Senior Product Manager (Current Employee) San Bruno, CA

    Pros- Great challenges. Walmart.com has lots to catch up on and Wal-mart is putting a lot of effort into making that happen
    - Emphasis on technological innovation - Walmart Labs especially
    - Autonomous . Contrary to the popular perception, Bentonville has minimal involvement in technology decisions.
    - Smart folks, quick turnaround time. Tech force is a combination of start ups acquired and talent from other top firms. I joined Labs from a competitor and was pleasantly surprised to see a better talent pool.
    - Great culture. good emphasis on diversity, employee well being
    - Small company with the benefits of a big company
    - Associate discounts on everything. Unlimited 10% off in stores and on walmart.com. Company shuttles.
    - Everyone gets a company iPhone
    - San Bruno office is global HQs - UK, Brazil , CN technology groups sit here

    Cons- In very nascent stages of e-commerce which is actually an opportunity but can be boring for someone looking to deal with ambuiguity

    Advice to Senior ManagementBuck the trend now and stop WalmartLabs from turning into a big bloated company - keep the teams lean and agile. Use technology to scale.
