    I have been working at Walmart full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    - Lots of possibilities. - Easy to move from one area to another and gain exposure to very different parts of the business. - Can move to a new position after only 18 months.

    Cons

    - Salary bands are very wide, up to $50k differential for people at the same level. - Long time employees are mostly in the lower end of the pay bands while newer associates in the last few years are being brought in at the midpoint of the pay band resulting in newer associates getting paid significantly more than longer term associates. - Some people have left the company due to low band penetration only to come back in 12-18 months at much higher salaries. - Due to to the breadth of the bands it's not uncommon for long time managers to have newly hired direct reports who have higher salaries than themselves. - Merit raises other than your annual raise are very difficult to get so if you're in the low end of your band, plan on staying there if you plan on staying with the company.

    Advice to Management

    Bringing in new associates at significantly higher salaries than you pay longer term associates is grossly unfair and sends the message "we already have you so why should we pay you more?" It is very frustrating and is starting to cause a lot of resentment. You need to level salaries or risk losing more talent at a faster rate.
