    Ample opportunities for go-getters to advance. Lots of corporate sluggishness to deal with.

    Pros

    If you have the patience to fight corporate red tape, you can go far. Find what problems your boss' boss is trying to solve, and carve out some time to chip away at it.

    Cons

    Just be prepared for lots of "lifers" who are accustomed to a slow pace and don't have much personal incentive to help you.

    Advice to Management

    Address the corporate sluggishness, and silo effects.

    Pros

    I love working here. Everyone is respectful. Room for growth. Competitive pay. Overall excellent place to establish a career.

    Cons

    Health insurance isn't very good. IT employees get preferred treatment compared to others since the area is so competitive in their field. That is good or bad depending on your job.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what your doing. Invest in employees, they will stay.

    Pros

    There are lots of opportunity to move from team to team to build your experience in the corporate culture and learn various perspectives from teams.

    Cons

    Model that most of the initiatives run on is putting/selling the cart before the horse. Causes quite a few workflow issues.

    Advice to Management

    I would suggest that Walmart.Com convert contractors more often to retain talent and not need to retrain and re-hire as often.

    You are able to transfer teams pretty easily.

    Many projects start with the 'cart before the horse' strategy causing many workflow issues.

    Advice to Management

    Convert Contractors to retain talent and reduce turn over.

    Pros

    This is a legitimately good place if you're interested in working with big data, particularly in a retail setting. The company has a very Silicon Valley feel, so there's (generally) pretty good work-life balance, a very casual atmosphere, and an emphasis on getting things done rather than showing your face around the office.

    Cons

    The pace of life can be a little slower than some smaller companies. You won't get much exposure to all aspects of the data pipeline as working with ETL is pretty much a full time job here.
