    Pros

    NW Arkansas is a nice area to live in.

    Cons

    Not a great place to work if you want to write code. Most of Walmart's software development is "remote sourced" to contractors in India. Walmart programmers mostly review code the contractors have written then at times have to fix it because the quality is poor. The company lacks any real direction in ISD. They change constantly but use outdated hardware, software and tools. The EDLC cost model is outdated and stale. Non of the systems in stores work right due to the constant drive to lower costs. The pay is at least 10% below what other companies pay for in house IT talent. The benefits are awful. The health insurance is a joke.

    Advice to Management

    Sam Walton is dead and has been for over 20 years. The new talent doesn't care what he said. Move into the future. Why is Mike Duke or Rob Walton never quoted? It is always "Mr Sam said..." Stop saying your people are the #1 thing and start showing it. Its is funny how the people are what Walmart is all about yet you give employees 2 to 2.5 percent raises for doing their job and maybe 3 or 4% if they are rated above target. This doesn't motivate people. Here is an idea all the VP's and above should make no more than 20x the lowest paid employee in the company. Figuring somebody is paid 7.25 an hour 20 x would be 301,600 annually. Mike Duke would have to give up 10 million or so but it may help ground upper management to the reality of real life.

    Pros

    You can make great friends, as long as you don't let yourself in the stupid gossip circles.

    Cons

    You can get coached if people you work with aren't doing their job even if you are so they can "make a point" that you are a "team"

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your associates, make time for them, be very firm but fair, know how to deal with the individual, don't assume everyone is the same, get to know your associates, don't just yell because you think it will get things done. Don't become a monster just because of your position, please remain a person and have a heart. It's not just about your bonus.
