Pros

Walmart.com is at the cutting edge of online retail. It's a dynamic environment in which smart, intelligent people are excited about the work they do. Communication and information-sharing is very open, and people respect each other. I was also surprised by how diverse a community it is.

Cons

The only downside has been that the Benefits package, although adequate, isn't as good as it is at other companies in the Bay Area.

Advice to Management

Senior management does a great job of sharing information, fostering pride in the company's successes and garnering excitement about the future of the company.

    Pros

    Fascinating company to work for - especially in an economic downturn. The company is well integrated with the Home Office in Bentonville, Arkansas. The company-sponsored shuttle is really fantastic and services many parts of the Bay Area.

    Cons

    There are minimal soft benefits, but the company is trying to add more. Health insurance is fine, but far from outstanding. The company gets a bad rap in the press regarding benefits -- they are available, but require a fairly significant monthly contribution if you want adequate coverage. Additionally, given size of organization, each person's range of responsibilities tends to be narrow. This is not unique to Walmart.com, but typical of any large company.

    Pros

    Working at a place with such a high volume of sales gives a lot of opportunity to learn.

    Cons

    Being the remote outpost of a huge company means you are never the center of the discussion, so a lot of effort goes into coordinating with headquarters in scenic Bentonville, Arkansas.

    Advice to Management

    Learn from other great web properties like Amazon/Yahoo/etc.
