I have been working at Walmart eCommerce

Pros

Great work life balance, great, friendly people and relaxed environment; opportunity to work on *big* projects that really make a difference, large budgets, tons of exposure to senior execs and senior partners at suppliers

Cons

Quite political - not clear how / why promotions happen, and performance sometimes seems second to peoples' ability to work the system.

    I have been working at Walmart eCommerce

    Pros

    Surrounded by innovation - within e-commerce, retail, social media & social commerce
    Team members have a lot of responsibility & autonomy to manage large pieces of the business
    Ability to partner with some of the best brands in the world

    Cons

    Highly matrixed environment can make it difficult to get things done
    Too many re-orgs results in wasted resources when the company changes direction yet again
    Career development is inconsistent across groups
    Can get stuck in the "retail trap" of being too reactive & not strategic enough

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Set a strategy, get alignment with key stakeholders & commit to that strategy for 3-5 years
    Ensure communication flows consistently from Sr. Leadership to all levels in the company
    Ensure incentive structures are aligned to ensure clarity of goals & mission
    Invest more in innovation & learning about the customer
