    Pros

    Great for career advancement. Looks good on a resume as an IT professional to have worked with Wal-Mart Information Systems.
    Exposure to a wide variety of systems
    Solid benefits package
    You *will* learn what "enterprise level" software really means. Wal-Mart systems will expose the weaknesses in any software (internally or externally developed).

    Cons

    The senior management in the Information Systems division values skill at internal politics over actual technical accomplishment.
    Project management is preached, but actual project are generally understaffed and have ridiculous timelines. When projects hit critical statuses (which they will), project management concepts go out the window.
    Consistently penny-wise and pound-foolish on systems planning. You have to submit requests for way more hardware than you actually need, because whatever you submit *will* be cut to barebones, barely functioning levels.

    Advice to Management

    Good projects are routinely axed midway through a fiscal year just to make financials looks good by coming in under budget. Coming in under budget means nothing if you don't accomplish what you set out to. Actually it means worse than nothing. It means you have sunk a lot of money down a hole. Much of the money was already spent, and you will never have the benefits to show for it. It wastes the time of valued associates, and kills their morale. Sometimes a project does need to die, because the benefits are outweighed by the costs. But often at Wal-Mart, they are killed just to look good on short-term financials.
