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

    Pros

    There is a lot of movement available in the company if you chose to do so. People like to meme the walmart shoppers and employees but 98% of them are just nice people even holidays don't get super crazy.

    Cons

    Walmart breeds a very toxic environment between employees and between their management team. It is always what is best for yourself and for your department not what is best for the store or the customer. It keeps management turned on each other and the associates. It becomes quickly reminiscent of cliche high school drama.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to what Sam Walton said and listen to your associates. Ask them how they think things are going on a more regular basis and not just yearly "grass roots" meetings.
