Instead of just talking about how bad an employee is instead try to help them out and make them better

    I worked at Walmart full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    opportunities galore, Sam Walton story inspirational, respect for work/life balance (at my stores anyway) Can be great buy-in from associates/managers with profit sharing - if your store is qualifying. Great things to learn from long term associates and there are lots of them. Great participation in green initiatives - for a big company....sometimes the clout of a big company can matter and make a difference. The cheer is not that bad, and can be downright fun.

    Cons

    if you start low you stay low salary/wage wise. Still some very un-inspirational managers in the business. A little too much waste for most people's personal taste...all in the name of "fear of litigation" so the hungry and less privileged lose.

    Advice to Management

    you lose great people when you stick to rules like - not promotable if you...eg: won't move, won't sign on to permanant overnight etc
    Not enough mentoring
