Approves of CEO

I have been working at Walmart eCommerce full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Life/work balance is possible
NOT attitude laden like some companies
Great physical environment
Really friendly people full of passion
Plenty of opportunity for growth

Cons

Very matrix like so can be a bit dysfunctional at times -but that simply translates into lots of low hanging fruit

Advice to Management

Ensure alignment trickles down to all levels. Walmart is making good headway on this but as we are moving so fast, there is sometimes avoidable inefficiency and confusion.
