    Pros

    Good, hardworking people, fun working environment

    Cons

    Strategic focus, ability of the product/engineering teams to deliver on time

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The recent changes from CTO Jeremy King have made this place a much better place to work. Its much more fun, feels like a high tech company, and we get to do HUGE things that impact millions of people.

    I worked at Walmart eCommerce

    Pros

    Easy way to get relocated to the valley, locals already know all to well this place is toxic and don't even consider this place. Bonus projections appear encouraging until it becomes clear that it is a joke, the division is not profitable and won't be any time soon. Job title ranges like Principal can be alluring, but you will be taking a step back since you'll be working with broken processes and neglected tools. HQ offers services to support eCommerce business, but they are slow, confrontational upon engagement and communication goes into a black hole.

    Cons

    Bait and switch tactics. Very dishonest and truth suppressing. Under staffed and under funded. Not possible to be your best work. If you don't say what people want to hear, treatment becomes indignant. Quality of coworkers is questionable with secret inter relationships at play. Employee surveys indicate results in the very low end of the industry 20 - 30% scores year after year. Brand and culture reputation keeps the best talent elsewhere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't think that your satisfaction with your compensation makes up for the miserable employment terms and working conditions you create for everyone else.

    Pros

    Walmart eCommerce is a diverse corporate environment under a very strong overall corporate brand. There are two locations both in North Bay and South Bay.

    Cons

    Cut throat corporate environment which prides personal connects over work output and accomplishments. The corporate culture of respect to the individual so central to the overall corporate culture does not carry over to the eCommerce division.

    I worked at Walmart eCommerce as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    Brand recognition on your resume moving forward. The pay is good--if you're willing to work in a toxic environment.

    Cons

    Very cut-throat environment with poor leadership who have a careless attitude towards their employee's. Only certain projects gain funding, things get chopped quickly, poor planning, no camaraderie, disgruntled employee's are rampant and management is stuck-up. The Labs and eCommerce division is no different than corporate. Walmart is made in America but there's no wholesome goodness there at at all.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Come down off your high-horse, treat people with dignity and respect and be true to your brand. There's more to life than the bottom line.

    Pros

    Salaries are competitive (for Labs), great work-life balance if your team is laid back (like mine). The culture is more or less of a typical Bay Area internet company. People are generally nice.

    Cons

    Benefits are sub-par for a company trying to compete with Google, Facebook; health insurance is something that definitely needs to be considered when negotiating (same selection as store employees). Hiring process is a bit questionable; there doesn't seem to be a ton of concern for culture fit, at least on the Labs side. Labs leadership seems rather hands off; I sense that they are coasting as well, as they are not held accountable for anything important like revenue. The expectation is that you under-promise and over-deliver. There isn't much incentive to innovate.

    Pros

    Base is the only good thing here, but revealing the bad management here. They just don't know how to attract talent people, increase the base only wont help.

    Wasting money everywhere but not right places.

    Cons

    Except the base, all the benefits(401K matching starting from 2nd year, joking bonus, scarce stock, low level health insurance, they still think their 2013 revised relocation benefit is competable now, almost no signing bonus).

    Super slow pace for the non-technical team, which means you will find immigration process quite painful and lots of waiting time there. Old big company issue should not happen in this so-called new born tech company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The day people accept the offer is the day they decide or try their best to leave.
