Not recommended unless you are close to retirement

(Current Employee)
Brisbane, CA

ProsAbove average compensation/benefits.
Convenient location for commuting.
Easygoing and smart people at the individual contributor level (if you are lucky enough to be on a team that has them).
Good job security.
Contractors are somewhat insulated from internal BS policies.
Ultra-cheap vending machines.

ConsWAY too many people are getting WAY too little done. Processes everywhere, endless meetings are an everyday thing, nobody seems willing to make decisions without coordinating with fifteen other teams. Obsolete technologies, multiple redundant tiers of management, dubious hiring trends (if you know what I mean), painfully slow progress on straightforward projects.

Advice to Senior Management- focus on innovation, rather than kicking the can down the road (site support).
- streamline the orgchart: cut out excess fat, flatten management, get rid of scores of useless "go-between" people roaming the hallways.
- find and train capable support personnel.
- buy larger monitors for employees (hint: no self-respecting engineers should have to use 19" screens anymore, this is 2011).
- stop cramming people into office space like cattle.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Upper and Middle management are confused and without vision

    Brisbane, CA

    I worked at Walmart eCommerce


    Pros: If you are competent at your work you are left alone....this changes from time… Cons: Middle and Upper management are woefully ignorant of how to run a modern e-commerce site. The technologies employed are decades old and the site's look… Advice to Senior Management: You don't know what you are doing.
