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

    Pros

    Software development teams are given a large amount of freedom to do things how they want. Management is not afraid to let "associates" take risks. The annual bonus is usually quite good. Promotions are no more difficult to come by than they are elsewhere. Wal-Mart has a huge connection to almost every vendor one could imagine. Therefore, many Wal-Mart employees view a job here as a "stepping stone" to somewhere else, and it is very good for that.

    Cons

    The large degree of freedom given to software development teams is accomplished via little oversight, which leads to convoluted, hard to maintain systems built by junior developers. Annual salary is below industry average - they will attempt to justify this by the cheaper cost of living in Bentonville, but the salary gap is much larger than this could account for. Health benefits are not good. You will works lots of hours and nights and frequently be "on call" 24x7 - especially if you are a "go-to" person. Mandatory 7:30am - 5:30pm workday for salaried employees.

    Advice to Management

    Just like any company, there are some good managers and some bad, and having a good 1st line manager makes a world of difference. Wal-Mart has a history of promoting business oriented people up the ISD command chain over technical people, which leads to a large disconnect between technical professionals and management. Stop forcing out your best technical people by refusing to pay them a fair salary and replacing them with college hires who are given too much responsibility for their level of experience.

    I worked at Walmart full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I love the team work that they have. Very helpful workers.

    Cons

    The store is 24hrs so its always customers there when I was stocking the sheves.

    Advice to Management

    It could be a better way to deal with the back room and over stock.
