    I have been working at Walmart full-time

    Pros

    Walmart used to have a wonderful culture! Our values meant something and the people truly made working for Walmart a great experience. The scale of the organization allows for meaningful work with high impact outcomes. But with great values sometimes people get complacent. We did not have a performance culture but it was a great place to be.

    Cons

    Former Accenture leaders now with Walmart hiring only their Accenture friends. Everyone gives a good talk but nobody knows how to execute anything. Pure chaos disguised as "Transformation" ... HR is a joke. Have been transforming for 2 years and there absolutely nothing to show - other than very poorly managed layoffs.

    Advice to Management

    Take a closer look at what is happening to the HR Organization and the poor leadership in place. Whatever happened with "Our people make the difference"? It's very sad to witness what is happening at Walmart.
