    Pros

    Walmart.com is a stable place to grow your career in retail. Merchants have loads of exposure everyone across the company, great opportunities to move around the company.

    Cons

    Culture fit is important, more important than meritocracy.

    Advice to Management

    Innovate and stop copying and playing catch up with other sites. Take risks and remember to reward your people.

    Pros

    * Fortune 1 company. Big opportunity to make a difference in the world because of scale and reach.
    * Great pay. Base salary that is high compared to other SF companies. Good equity and bonus.
    * Diversity. This is surprising to most but we work with people from all backgrounds. I learn so much from my co-workers.

    Cons

    * CFO lacks respect for the employees and their personal lives. She's disorganized, misses or is often very late for meetings and imposes deadlines at the last minute due to poor time management. If you plan to work in Finance, don't count on weekends or vacations.
    * High turnover. Several key leaders and employees have left Finance over night. The CFO or new leaders she brought in don't value respect or retention. Everyone is replaceable. Only a few old time leaders in Finance remain and they hold the team together.
    * Fear of retaliation. People are afraid to talk and challenge things because they can get fired.

    Advice to Management

    I recommend the company because Walmart is under appreciated for what it does. But I can't recommend working in Finance under the current leader. Bentonville headquarters HR should spend time in San Bruno and actually talk to employees to try and understand why things are getting worse.

    Pros

    Good work life balance. Alot of projects to work on. Alot of upside if come from another established tech company. Staff here can learn from experienced technical personnel. This allows you to mold your team.

    Cons

    Working with Technical staff that shouldn't be in tech. The mentality here is ,its not my job to do that. They use offshore engineering way too much and the people who are hired in office are all friends of family or related in some way. Only 1 type of culture exists here.

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring your friends or family members and hire actual technical people who can contribute.

    Pros

    job security, diversity, good management HR, management cares about its employees open door policy and being . They hire people that have handicaps and work with them

    Cons

    At times a new entry level leader does not know how to treat people in a good way. They let their positions go to their head

    Advice to Management

    I would say over all that Walmart is a great company to work for. I really enjoy the people I work with and they are hard working and flexible

    Pros

    Early days of the technology, huge data to work on and potentially large impact. Great team, and generally ton of freedom to fundamentally impact from the ground up.

    Cons

    In some cases, part of the parent Walmart makes things move slow sometimes. In other cases, it does not even feel like we are leveraging all the resources of the large company.

    Advice to Management

    Make things less hierarchical, push decision making down to the lowest level and make sure people are empowered.

    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.
