    Pros

    Honestly it was just a job while in college. Nothing that great to discuss. It was a job that gave me enough money to get from point A to point B.

    Cons

    Management was not that great. Not friendly. Standing all day for little pay. Never had a weekend off. Difficult to take a day off.

    Advice to Management

    Be friendly! Appreciate your people!

    Pros

    Small town feel, lay low in slow phase of your career.

    Cons

    If you are on temporary visa like F1, you will have to wait for getting through H1 lottery to even think of promotion. So, growth is not proportional to your performance if you are on temporary visa. Even director level guy's green card is processed on EB3.
    THIS IS TRUE FOR BENTONVILLE, DALLAS AND AUSTIN locations. California office has separate HR policies which are pretty standard.

    Advice to Management

    If you see future for these offices in tech space, fix your HR policies.

    I worked at Walmart full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It's a fortune 1 company and opens doors if you do well at your job and network
    Shareholders week is amazing and helps boost moral
    Discount card, gym membership, and associate store are decent perks

    Cons

    -No recognition for your work or effort, if you pick up extra work or take on someone else's responsibilities it will generally go un-noticed.
    -Management is out to save themselves not take care of direct reports because of all the organization changes.
    -No feeling of job stability or job satisfaction, its clear that you're expendable and will be let you go for any reason

    Advice to Management

    Do better for your associates, there's so much push and focus put on the store employees that executives have forgotten their corporate worker-bees. Stop making everyone expendable and letting go of people with high expertise just to be able to cut costs. Invest in management training for corporate, and get ride of the politics and discrepancies between hourly and salary associates.

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

    Pros

    Flexible work hours, opportunities to grow

    Cons

    Lacking work equipment (underpowered laptop), old versions of software, subpar PTO (PTO has to be taken ANY day of the year needed off, including holidays), people afraid of change and not willing to embrace it, and extremely discouraging code quality.

    Advice to Management

    Go back to the old time off or leave PTO given the same as is and give holidays off. It leads to employees being happier. Give developers minimum i7 and 16 gb ram and don't bloat the computers. Embrace a culture of constant changing instead of one where people are happy with things the way they are. I understand every day low cost is Walmart's model, but if you want to be competitive in technology, being cheap won't work. It simply won't.

    Pros

    Great store manager and coworkers

    Cons

    Questionable tactics by the BOD

    Advice to Management

    Trust your employees more and they will prove to you they can do what is asked. When home office has a major thing coming down like the backroom system in 2010, let more employees be trained instead of having a fiasco like happened.
