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

    Pros

    The people, culture, and general attitudes are unmatched. The environment this creates makes for a really good experience. The facilities are improving and the company is becoming more technologically progressive every day. They genuinely listen to concerns and try to act on them to the point it can be overwhelming, in a good way. The cafeteria is like getting a pay raise because the prices are cheap and the food is healthy.

    Cons

    There is still a lot of red tape even with recent efforts to reduce it. If you get on the wrong team you can end up doing little to no coding and just lead contractors. Being the size it is, there are a lot of outdated technologies and no unified sense of direction from a technology stand point. The 45 hour minimum work week is a negative, but if that's my biggest complaint then they are doing things right.

    Advice to Management

    Be more transparent with what is expected for evals and performance. If there are budget reasons to hold good people back then that problem is a major roadblock to continuing to retain good talent.

    I worked at Walmart full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Strives for excellence; expects the best out of you. Flexible hours. After 10 years of working for Walmart you will have learned a plethora of information, on and off the information. You will have grown. Culturally diverse, you will work with people all around the world. You will be on a team of people who are very much like your family. Integrity is important to this company. You will be kindly corrected for your mistakes and mishaps. That is, you can make a mistake and there will be a solution. Problems are not problems; they are opportunities to grow.

    Cons

    If you are from a different location in the United States, you will be expected to work in Bentonville. Now, Bentonville is not a bad place to raise your family. It is large and you will want to go see your family but there are endless hours. After about three to five years, unless you are leaving the country, you are expected to be reachable. The culture is changing a little because of corporate laws. Also, make sure you have a set of noise cancelling headphones, you are going to need them. The noise level in DGTC has increased ten fold since they remodeled it. :)

    Advice to Management

    Do the best you can, expect the best out of the associates. Continue growing and doing the right thing. Continue helping your associates grow.

    Pros

    Lots of technologies are being used and you are open to explore and learn! So I would say this is a good company to start with where you get lots of exposure to technology!

    Cons

    There are no hard deadlines for projects, and there was no rush! The location is pretty okay, like a village!

    Advice to Management

    Hard deadlines would be good!

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

    Pros

    Working with some dope technology (electrode)
    I also work with some really smart people
    JK is definitely moving the company in the right direction. I can’t believe some of the stories I hear from the Bentonville people what they used to have to deal with.
    New bonus incentive means I can get a 35% bonus for my annual bonus
    Even though Walmart is a huge company, generally you work on smaller projects so it’s nice in that regard.
    Bentonville is actually a really nice place

    Cons

    I work with some absolute morons. Idk if it’s because of the location, I’ve heard it is harder for WM to attract the best talent to Bentonville so maybe that’s why.
    Don’t be fooled in recruiting. Unless a recruiter specifically tells you something and it’s written down, don’t trust anyone. I had two alumni from my college who straight up lied to me in the recruiting process.
    Not sure where else to go if I leave Walmart in NWA. People will say there are companies, but you can’t be that picky about it.
    The interview process was too easy. I came in as an entry level programmer and had to work with a programmer analyst on a special project... but they had their masters so that’s why they are a PA. Turns out the person barely knows how to program...

    Advice to Management

    keep moving us in the right direction
