Pros

You have pretty good Job Security. Don't ask too much outside of the normal work schedule unless it is for charity.

Cons

Pay is not competitive with other companies in the field. They continually add job tasks but don't pay us for the extra work load.

Advice to Management

Pay more to your associates from top to bottom. They do not make enough as an associate and is not worth it to get promoted because it doesn't pay.

    Would be cool, if it wasn't actually working for Wal-Mart.

    Pros

    As a programmer; they do try to balance work and life. They arent great at it, but they try more than others. Easy to advance to higher positions. Slow to stream line software development, but at least they know it needs to be done. Respect for the individual is their motto, and I think most people get it and live it. I feel like my team is my family (for better or worse).

    Cons

    Required to be part of a pager rotation (which can be great, and can be really bad, depends on the team). Location (Bentonvile) is low cost of living but absolutely boring. Either poor skanks or rich people who think they are important - almost everyone in Fayetteville hates home office employees. some really dumb people get promoted only because they are tall and talk loudly. Work with old technology, and end up writing the documentation so that contractor can do the work. The worst thing is the corporate culture. If you get a job here as a programmer, be prepared to have your job outsourced in five years, because they setting themselves up to have ISD only be in charge of projects, not to actually do them. Only senior programmers and above will be safe. Their retail analysis isn't even preformed by them anymore, third party companies do it now.

    Advice to Management

    Its not that bad being a programmer for walmart, however, the company itself is pretty evil. They want to crush amazon, even though amazon is a bigger innovator than they are. They support SOPA and want all the employees to vote for whatever the company wants. Let your employees be unique, dont try to tell them what to think all of the time. The place is like a cult, lose the cultness, and it would be one of the best places to work ever.
