Approves of CEO

I have been working at Walmart eCommerce full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

I learned a lot from this role because it is facing several business sectors. Everyone's nice and helpful. There are always things to do. Office is nice and the work is pretty lay-back.

Cons

The career path is kind vague.
Actions have been done pretty slow and it is hard to see my work being used in any future products.
Company is kind cheap, so no FREE stuff.

    I have been working at Walmart eCommerce full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Who said work couldn't be fun? There are many challenges here, and while the vibe is very hard-working in this time of ultimate growth, the teams manage to keep a respectable work/life balance and always remember to have fun and laugh along the way. I love it here!

    The perks are great: a very competitive salary, stock options, bonus potential, free lunch on fridays, free popcorn daily, free parking, your own laptop, subsidized cafeteria meals, cheap vending machine options, an on-site gym with gym classes available, etc.

    Employee retention is important to any business, and Walmart eCommerce knows how to keep me happy.

    Cons

    I don't know of any cons.....

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up! Continue to recognize your employees (respecting their work/life balance and having social events, rewarding employees with comp time, celebrating birthdays/holidays/welcomes/departures, etc.

    I have been working at Walmart eCommerce full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    + expectations are not high
    + most employees work from the comfort of home
    + engineering challenges are certainly available
    + lots of talented aqui-hires around to learn from

    Cons

    + expectations are not high
    + engineering culture is seriously lacking
    + lots of office politics
    + most employees choose to defer responsibility, creating lots of office politics
    + compensation is below average
    + major gap in culture & communication between American & Indian employees
    + deploying services and managing deployed software operations is next to impossible
    + many teams have very long release cycles (most many years before product launches)

    Advice to Management

    communication transparency should be made a priority, as the culture currently holds information as a form of power
    most leaders at Walmart avoid making decisions themselves, but aren't willing to delegate the responsibility. This basically results in no progress being made.
