    Pros

    *Keep in mind this is from a engineering/QA/product mgmt POV:

    - Plenty of room to rise up and get that title if you can last long
    - Most business partners are pleasant to work with
    - There are lots of good people there, but many have left in the last ~2-3 years so not sure if that's a pro anymore

    Cons

    *Keep in mind this is from a engineering/QA/product mgmt POV:

    - Too many changes and its constant. They'll re-org every 1-1.5 years! People have had 5 different superiors in 1-2 years!
    - Morale is super low
    - Ridiculous timelines with ridiculous features with no resources
    - A bit like the blind leading the blind
    - No vision, and if there is/was it constantly changes
    - Some leadership and new folks they've hired since starting WalmartLabs are pretentious and not pleasant to work with.
    - Business partners often don't understand software development and the amount of time/resources it takes to build. I've been told, "well, aren't your agile? Doesn't that mean I will get my products even faster!"
    - No sense of change management whatsoever
    - Lots of politics
    - Some leaders are promoted so fast without much reason so they are not seasoned or groomed correctly
    - Benefits package compared to to other tech companies is a bit of a joke. Simply because it is retail.
    - Turnover is a huge issue.

    Advice to Management

    If you're serious about catching up to competitors you have to stick to a vision and organization for 5 years+. Be willing to invest in technology, your people and expect mistakes and losses in your business for the years to come! You can't have your pie and eat it too.
