Pros

In its day, there was amazing innovation at Wal-Mart. Because of the size of the company, you knew you could make a big difference in the world.

There was nothing like Wal-Mart for learning how to work 'in the large'.

Cons

Every time something bad happened, additional process was added to compensate. After many years of this, there's a lot more process now than anything else.

It takes forever to get anything done. The process is insane.

Advice to Management

You can't outsource heavily and continue to innovate. And you have to innovate faster than your competition. Mr. Sam said that. You have forgotten that lesson.

    They should make some sort of program that allows employees to work on their leadership and management skills. They should also adjust the 1st shift schedule to a time later than 4am.
