Former Employee - Software Engineer in Sunnyvale, CA

I worked at Walmart eCommerce full-time for more than a year

Pros

lots of opportunities
decent benefits/compensation
very nice colleagues
new building in Sunnyvale is top of line office buildings

In order to success in this company you have to meet certain traits,

Cons

despite its IT department, the company applied some harsh policy from store to engineers as well, etc, only get employee discount benefits after 3 months, can only get certain some cheap insurance the same of the store employees, can only have 6 legal holidays per year.

the reward system is not about your talent or how much you can achieve but how much you are flattering your superiors, and the talkers got the most rewards.

the company culture is dominated by certain group of people with certain foreign culture, whoever are not part of that group inborn will be alienated and treated unfairly.
I have heard other colleagues complaining difficult to get promoted here, that is only because you meet one of the following condition

1) your boss is in that certain group while you are not
2) you are not flattering hard enough
3) you are working too hard that jeopardize your boss' limited managing ability
4) you know too much and has certain eagle or ambition inside of you

and if you got 2 of 4, you should not count your bonus to be a good or even getting ready to be fired.

the managers only care about immediate interests, making judgement based on benefits of themselves.

the managers has no sense of righteousness or integrity, I have seen many cases that they encroached x-employees' IPs, how do they sleep well stealing other people's work like that.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

diversify your team, discipline all your managers or fire them.
make plans based on long term.
seriously consider the difficulties of the team and stop dreaming big.
stop all the political craziness and actually do something,

I cannot believe the delivery goal slipped 3 years and nothing effective is done from the management level

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

    Pros

    Nice amenities; lot freebies; good food with reasonable price; nice gym; wonderful shuttle service;

    Cons

    If you want to learn football or soccer game, then come here. People didn't have tendency to resolve the issue rather they are willing to throw the issue and help you to learn how to play political soccer game. Basically I mean poor collaboration; There are some so called geeks but really dumps; You have to be careful working with them; They will talk like a geek and try to boss you but nothing inside their head;

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please do some clean up work

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

    Pros

    You'll meet some great people here but you may bond with them for the wrong reasons -- people tend to form strong work connections when they're at odds with the organization around them. Lots of industry analytics applied to the work, so you do get a sense of why a marketing effort worked or didn't.

    Cons

    You can never really be a nimble ecommerce organization when you're weighed down by a huge, cumbersome analog-oriented headquarters. The Arkansas culture is too strong an influence and tends to undercut any momentum the website gets going. Too much second-guessing, conservativism, and fear of being a leader or taking a stand in the industry. Way too many reorgs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't treat employees like children. Recognize the talents and skills that people bring to the table from their past experience and fill positions with the right level so junior people are set up to develop skills and senior level people can apply what they know. Lose the Walmart cheer, it's cultish and creeps people out.
