      Former Employee - Software Engineer in Reston, VA
      Doesn't Recommend
      Neutral Outlook
      No opinion of CEO

      I worked at Walmart full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      - Yummy, nutritious snacks available for free - Big bonuses (if you aren't forced at the bottom of the stack ranking) - Flexible working arrangements if you have the right manager

      Cons

      This office was originally a startup that went bankrupt and Walmart acquired it, and all of the management from the startup (that failed) stayed, so as you can imagine, there is some terrible management here. - No diversity, management only likes to hire H1B candidates because they can't quit - Very political, people get promoted based on time there - Most people in Bentonville are very incompetent, and everyone...

      Advice to Management

      Neutral Outlook
      Disapproves of CEO

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

      Pros

      The work is all around the shiny technologies and a good learning curve.

      Cons

      The pressure is too much from top to bottom and some managers suck really bad. Especially the Sunnyvale office is not a comfortable place for Contract developers/testers as they are treated really bad and as a "3" class citizens. No appreciation on the work delivered

      Advice to Management

      Please do not hire people if you have to treat them.

      Pros

      No pros about Walmart

      Filled with lobbyist Infosys, TCS, and Congnizent. No systematic work culture. I highly recommend not waste your time by joining Walmart.

      Try to concentrate on lower level workforce, i.e. are pillars to organization. Avoid the above mentioned vendors.
