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

Pros

- Career development; people get promoted and are given good opportunities to develop
- Work life balance; we have a few afternoon offs. This was even featured in an HBR article
- Fast paced; high growth leads to many projects for some of us that can handle multiple priorities
- Innovation; leadership believes in agile principles to improve processes and add value
- Diversity; we have people from different backgrounds and countries

Cons

- Walmart has out of date financial systems leading to time wasted pulling and manipulating data
- Walmart doesn't value the accounting function

Advice to Management

Exec leadership should invest in tools and systems to run back office efficiently
HR needs to find ways to treat people fairly. Perks are only given to techies.

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

    Pros

    lots of opportunities
    decent benefits/compensation
    very nice colleagues
    new building in Sunnyvale is top of line office buildings

    In order to success in this company you have to meet certain traits,

    Cons

    despite its IT department, the company applied some harsh policy from store to engineers as well, etc, only get employee discount benefits after 3 months, can only get certain some cheap insurance the same of the store employees, can only have 6 legal holidays per year.

    the reward system is not about your talent or how much you can achieve but how much you are flattering your superiors, and the talkers got the most rewards.

    the company culture is dominated by certain group of people with certain foreign culture, whoever are not part of that group inborn will be alienated and treated unfairly.
    I have heard other colleagues complaining difficult to get promoted here, that is only because you meet one of the following condition

    1) your boss is in that certain group while you are not
    2) you are not flattering hard enough
    3) you are working too hard that jeopardize your boss' limited managing ability
    4) you know too much and has certain eagle or ambition inside of you

    and if you got 2 of 4, you should not count your bonus to be a good or even getting ready to be fired.

    the managers only care about immediate interests, making judgement based on benefits of themselves.

    the managers has no sense of righteousness or integrity, I have seen many cases that they encroached x-employees' IPs, how do they sleep well stealing other people's work like that.

    Advice to Management

    diversify your team, discipline all your managers or fire them.
    make plans based on long term.
    seriously consider the difficulties of the team and stop dreaming big.
    stop all the political craziness and actually do something,

    I cannot believe the delivery goal slipped 3 years and nothing effective is done from the management level

    Pros

    Feels like a family, a community.
    Everyday is a challenge and you must have an out of the box attitude to win.
    So much to learn from. Very smart associates.

    Cons

    Political.
    Competitive.
    Teams over step boundaries to win.

    Advice to Management

    Take associate surveys seriously. Grow your teams. Teach your associates new things. Too many managers focus on their own career growth and leave their reports hanging. Especially in merchandising.
