Current Employee - Staff Software Engineer
Current Employee - Staff Software Engineer

I have been working at Walmart eCommerce full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Pay and benefits - okay. Good climate within a team. Supportive environment. Nice office. Comfortable cubicles. Majority of fellow Indians. Average work-life balance (which is good considering the company size).

Cons

Very limited opportunities to develop new skills. Insufficient to non-existent in-house trainings or setups to share technical knowledge. Hard to find any spare time to learn something new on your own - never ending backlog of boring repetitive tasks. Feeling that every day working here means loosing your market value.
Inconvenient/restricted internet access/vpn. Chaos in intranet: very hard to find a tool you need.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Encourage employees to share their experience with juniors. Host tech meetups.

    Pros

    - Great leadership; our controller and leaders are very approachable and know what they are doing
    - Career development; people get promoted and are given good opportunities to develop
    - Work life balance; we have a few afternoon offs. This was even featured in an HBR article
    - Fast paced; high growth leads to many projects for some of us that can handle multiple priorities
    - Innovation; leadership believes in agile principles to improve processes and add value
    - Diversity; we have people from different backgrounds and countries

    Cons

    - Walmart has out of date financial systems leading to time wasted pulling and manipulating data
    - Walmart doesn't value the accounting function
    - Home office culture clashes with eCommerce culture

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Exec leadership should invest in tools and systems to run back office efficiently
    HR needs to find ways to treat people fairly. Perks are only given to techies.
