    I have been working at Walmart full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Definitely is a meritocracy, everyone I work with is interested in my development, very willing to help out. If you objectively perform well, you're rewarded. There's lots of places to go in the company for a hard worker. The merch specialist position specifically is a great place to start towards the buyer role.

    Cons

    The job itself is a lot of inputing data into systems, helping the buyers however you can, you might call it "gruntish". I really wish the company would do more for the employees in terms of perks. The cafeteria is expensive and not that good. Not that many complaints though.

    Advice to Management

    I think the vision and strategy for the company is right on, the thing about walmart is it's so huge your experience can vary so much by wherever you are. The management I'm closest to is doing a great job.
