Former Employee - Head of a Dept in San Bruno, CA

I worked at Walmart eCommerce full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

They are trying hard to catch up to Amazon, but never will.

Brand for @WalmartLabs attracts tech talent, but they leave after being sold false story.

Growing, but due to high attrition and low retention cubes are endlessly rotating or empty.

Big giant company on your resume, but awful brand and lack of marketability when you leave

Hope: new CEO

Sunnyvale office, but good luck getting a seat there as it is only for engineers or special people

Cons

Politics: worse than any other company and worse than they paint it to be

Management is built of ex eBay, Yahoo, Amazon and Walmart corp people who are building teams of robots like them. Not working. Promotions are based on who you know not your great work or great ideas. Reviews and ratings are a joke and leaders have to be forced by HR to actually do them and forced with 10 reminders to set goals. Poor HR team overall. Transactional at best.

Corporate rains on your ideas and your parade when you accomplish something. Corporate has antiquated ways and "this is the way we've always done it" mentality.

They promote diversity and have ARGs but ultimately no leadership support, budget or commitment to actually accomplish change. They hire tons of white men, hardly any women and when women leaders are hired, they don't promote from within but open roles that internals don't even get the chance to interview for or trial.

Not going anywhere until corp releases reigns and lets them actually operate like a start up.

Its a rumor mill with a bunch of high school students running around leading teams, HR and the business. Competency based hiring would help.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Truly listen to your people. Try focus groups or reading the annual survey results.

Watch the people you hire and try not to only hire referrals from the same 3-4 companies.

Loosen up the corporate Bentonville reigns and actually operate like a Silicon Valley company with Fortune #1 support and strength.

Be true to the story you tell when interviewing. The honeymoon ends too quickly and the revolving doors of people, management and executives makes it so inauthentic.

    I have been working at Walmart eCommerce full-time

    Pros

    The people. Especially those that have been there a while. Pre-@labs, this place had a supportive and family culture.

    Cons

    Post-@labs, full of egos and very cutthroat. CTO loves this. Sr. leaders aren't working towards a common goal. They compete against each other for the CTO's favoritism.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the bad leadership. You still have a good team there. You can undo the past few years of wrong doing this way.
