    Limited opportunities to develop skills

    • Senior Management
    • Culture & Values
    • Career Opportunities
    Current Employee - Staff Software Engineer
    Current Employee - Staff Software Engineer

    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.

    Coast with good pay

    • Senior Management
    • Culture & Values
    • Career Opportunities
    Current Employee - Senior Product Manager  in  San Bruno, CA
    Current Employee - Senior Product Manager in San Bruno, CA

    Pros

    Good comp (if you work in WalmartLabs)
    Flexibility and work life balance - half of my team rolls in around (or after) 11am

    I have about 10 hours of real work every week, and my manager doesn't seem to notice or care. This could be a pro or con, depending on what you want out of your career. In previous jobs, this kind of apathy would have driven me nuts, but I've accepted things for what they are for now and am figuring out what I want to do in my next opportunity.

    Cons

    Terrible health insurance
    Over-promoted, unexperienced employees from acquisitions (WalmartLabs)
    Some bad hiring decisions despite bar-raisers (quantity over quality)
    No sense of career direction

    witnessed the infamous harsh or cruel treatments to their employees

    • Senior Management
    • Culture & Values
    • Career Opportunities
    Former Employee - Software Engineer  in  Sunnyvale, CA
    Former Employee - Software Engineer in Sunnyvale, CA

    Pros

    lots of opportunities
    decent benefits/compensation
    very nice colleagues
    new building in Sunnyvale is top of line office buildings

    In order to success in this company you have to meet certain traits,

    Cons

    despite its IT department, the company applied some harsh policy from store to engineers as well, etc, only get employee discount benefits after 3 months, can only get certain some cheap insurance the same of the store employees, can only have 6 legal holidays per year.

    the reward system is not about your talent or how much you can achieve but how much you are flattering your superiors, and the talkers got the most rewards.

    the company culture is dominated by certain group of people with certain foreign culture, whoever are not part of that group inborn will be alienated and treated unfairly.
    I have heard other colleagues complaining difficult to get promoted here, that is only because you meet one of the following condition

    1) your boss is in that certain group while you are not
    2) you are not flattering hard enough
    3) you are working too hard that jeopardize your boss' limited managing ability
    4) you know too much and has certain eagle or ambition inside of you

    and if you got 2 of 4, you should not count your bonus to be a good or even getting ready to be fired.

    the managers only care about immediate interests, making judgement based on benefits of themselves.

    the managers has no sense of righteousness or integrity, I have seen many cases that they encroached x-employees' IPs, how do they sleep well stealing other people's work like that.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    diversify your team, discipline all your managers or fire them.
    make plans based on long term.
    seriously consider the difficulties of the team and stop dreaming big.
    stop all the political craziness and actually do something,

    I cannot believe the delivery goal slipped 3 years and nothing effective is done from the management level

    Right Company but Wrong People

    • Comp & Benefits
    • Work/Life Balance
    • Senior Management
    • Culture & Values
    • Career Opportunities
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    Nice amenities; lot freebies; good food with reasonable price; nice gym; wonderful shuttle service;

    Cons

    If you want to learn football or soccer game, then come here. People didn't have tendency to resolve the issue rather they are willing to throw the issue and help you to learn how to play political soccer game. Basically I mean poor collaboration; There are some so called geeks but really dumps; You have to be careful working with them; They will talk like a geek and try to boss you but nothing inside their head;

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please do some clean up work
