    I have been working at Walmart eCommerce full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Work on projects with enormous scale and impact
    - Recognizable brand for resume
    - Good work/life balance, easy hours
    - Passionate coworkers

    Cons

    - Limited room for advancement, which is surprising for the size of the company. Promotions tend to be random and are based on relationships rather than skills and abilities. As a result, there is a level of mediocre middle management
    - People are generally nice, but not as smart as some of the other Bay Area tech companies
    - Division has been growing very rapidly over the past few years, which leads to growing pains

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Focus on developing talent and new leaders for the company, not on rewarding people for "playing the part"
    - Pick a strategy and stick with it. Priorities change too much.

    Hierarchical and bureaucratic--not a start up environment they claim!

    I have been working at Walmart eCommerce full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Everyone is nice and accommodating
    Decent amenities (cafeteria, food, etc)
    Good work/life balance

    Cons

    Lack of career opportunities (you have to be VERY planful or wait until the person above you moves on..like the government!!)

    Lack of focus--lots of conversation about ideas, but little understanding on how to execute
    Too many meetings with no clear outcomes or agenda

    Consensus-driven decision making--everyone needs to be involved to make a decision-big/small which is frustrating

    Leadership don't really have the experience--none have been in their current roles previously where they can really demonstrate the way forward
    V
    ery fractured organization--lack of cross-functional harmony

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Practice what you preach. If you want to resemble a high growth, innovative start up, get rid of the antiquated mentality about career, titles, roles

    Stop having so many meetings with no clear purpose
