Former Employee - Merchant in San Bruno, CA

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

Pros

Feels like a family, a community.
Everyday is a challenge and you must have an out of the box attitude to win.
So much to learn from. Very smart associates.

Cons

Political.
Competitive.
Teams over step boundaries to win.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take associate surveys seriously. Grow your teams. Teach your associates new things. Too many managers focus on their own career growth and leave their reports hanging. Especially in merchandising.

    I worked at Walmart eCommerce full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great environment, talented and transparent coworkers, and overall an exciting company to be a part of. Everyone is happy to discuss their work and teach you about their business to help you grow and develop.

    Cons

    Walmart eCommerce is just one piece of a very large organization. It is a challenge to understand what are the resources that can be shared with Bentonville or 3rd party services, and what needs to be homegrown. Finding this balance seems to be the greatest bottleneck to progress. It feels like there is not enough of a vision of how to manage each one of the disconnected systems (despite the leading initiative by Engineering), and "systems constraints" continues to be a scapegoat to explain an inability to scale.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It is ok to be wrong or pursue the wrong strategy, being transparent with your team is more important. What eCommerce needs to be competitive is clear, but how the entire company is going to get there (not just teams supporting the front-end site) is a very muddled picture.

    I have been working at Walmart eCommerce full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great investment in technology. Large size means ability to touch just about every aspect. HR seems to be making an effort to make it a "fun" place to work.

    Cons

    Usual office politics. Promotions largely determined by brown-nosing. Mgmt constantly sends out mixed messages and unachievable "goals". Lots of new talent coming in that knows everything better and then can't deliver, leading them to blame everybody but themselves. Zero work-life balance (ironically the homeoffice in Bentonville seems to do a much better job there).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Follow the company values of Work-Life balance. Better Planning would help a lot, as most decisions seem reactive rather than proactive.
