    - 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    - Walmart has out of date financial systems leading to time wasted pulling and manipulating data

    Pros

    Who said work couldn't be fun? There are many challenges here, and while the vibe is very hard-working in this time of ultimate growth, the teams manage to keep a respectable work/life balance and always remember to have fun and laugh along the way. I love it here!

    The perks are great: a very competitive salary, stock options, bonus potential, free lunch on fridays, free popcorn daily, free parking, your own laptop, subsidized cafeteria meals, cheap vending machine options, an on-site gym with gym classes available, etc.

    Employee retention is important to any business, and Walmart eCommerce knows how to keep me happy.

    Cons

    I don't know of any cons.....

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep it up! Continue to recognize your employees (respecting their work/life balance and having social events, rewarding employees with comp time, celebrating birthdays/holidays/welcomes/departures, etc.
