    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Walmart full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good benefits and competitive pay. Bentonville/Rogers is great area to raise a family and cost of living is low.

    Cons

    Due to sheer size, jobs tend to be narrower and deeper. You may not get the chance to learn many areas of the business since jobs tend to be narrowly focused but a need for a high understanding of the area in which you work. Walmart HR is prejudiced against straight white males and they are much less likely to be promoted.

    Advice to Management

    You can't make up for perceived prejudice in one area by suppressing the opposite group in another.

    Pros

    great pay and some really smart people.
