    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Walmart full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Salary positions pay well, some managers are flexible on hours/location of work, benefits are ok.

    Cons

    Very political environment and must be a good networker and have influencers on your side to be promoted. Raises above 2% year are extremely rare. Current rating system forces managers to give poor performance reivews even if all the team is meeting the expectations, this will stall your career and mark you for layoff the next time the department needs to reduce budget.

    Advice to Management

    Go back to a fair assessment of performance. Allow and trust people to work remotely as needed. Stop the obsession with beating Amazon, you win by doing the things Amazon does not do, however online does need to keep improving to compete.
