    Pros

    Work on cutting edge technology, with healthy IT budgets, on big datasets in beautiful Northwest Arkansas or in Silicon Valley. Walmart is a retail company and the merchandising systems are amazing, but due to the size of the company there are also great opportunities to work in logistics, transportation, human resources, corporate, and store systems. Hard work is recognized and rewarded, Individuals are encouraged to move up within IT and between the business functions and IT. Significant investments are made in you with mentors, soft-skills and technical training.

    Cons

    Discount tetail is a competitive, low-margin business. Sometimes business conditions require priorities to change and projects have to be cancelled.

    Advice to Management

    Be more amenable to and supportive of remote work, flexible schedules, sabbaticals, and extra unpaid vacation.
