    Pros

    Walmart Technology has great leadership, culture, and the resources to enhance your skills/experience in the field of technology.

    Cons

    The business and technology are located in separate facilities, so meeting with business stakeholders requires frequent traveling from one campus facility to another or using conference call tools. These conditions are in the process of changing.

    Pros

    Awesome teammates; a great opportunity to learn through courses, experiences, and conferences; great manager; improving culture; ability to wfh or take off when needed

    Cons

    Promotion politics, bell curve rating system which impact bonus payouts, promotion quota, slow reaction-based changes, schisms between tech offices due to differences in benefits packages, low base pay, no free food, difficulty in transferring between locations

    Advice to Management

    Invest in the culture and do it NOW.

    I have been working at Walmart full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    You get a variety of jobs, not all focused on one thing, such as Merchandising. There’s Legal, Real Estate, IT, Logistics.

    Cons

    Evaluations are very subjective now. You can be doing a good solid job, and still don’t get a decent raise or full bonus simply because people outside your immediate area don’t know you or exactly what you do, but they get input on your salary.

    Advice to Management

    I realise things have changed since Sam Walton died, but it feels like you’ve lost sight of how he treated his associates. If you take care of your people, they’ll take care of the customer.

    Pros

    fast paced, friendly, and understanding atmosphere (outside of ISD)

    Cons

    hold grudges, spread too thin so unable to concentrate or fully focus on one project or item

    Advice to Management

    take the 3 breaks that you are suppose to receive..too many go without that break which can make or break another's day and better adjust the attitudes there.

    I worked at Walmart full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    - Tons of job opportunities
    - Exposure to and endless amount of people to network with

    Cons

    - No longer a family environment
    - There is always a fear of job loss, regardless of performance

    Advice to Management

    - Massive layoffs is wrong. - Realign people were you can, give them a chance to keep their life going. Sam would have not approved of all the damage you all have done to people's lifes the past 4-5 years. - Your pay and rewards are not as good as you think, there are companies out there willing to pay more and have people work less to keep the talent... learn from that.

    I have been working at Walmart full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great opportunities, great pay and benefits, corporate culture and commitment to diversity and inclusion

    Cons

    There is tremendous pressure to cut costs, so there is no budget to attend conferences or gain valuable training. Not enough resources and unattainable amount of work is assigned makes employees feel under valued and expendable

    Advice to Management

    Stop the continual layoffs as people are consistently worried whether or not they will have a job each day they come into work. It puts employees in undo stress which leads to low engagement.

    I have been working at Walmart full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    PTO -31 days 6-9yr associates
    6% 401k match
    Work flexibility. Tech focuses on getting job done not where you are (depends on area)

    Cons

    4 Tech leaders all leading differently. Some areas bonus/stock impacted by evaluations while other areas are not. Some expect Project managers be technical while others dont. Too many mixed messages.

    Walmart culture dying with so many outside hires in leadership. What 10 foot rule? Kick off meeting with cheer...why?

    Diversity of Tech leaders. AA leadership pool down drastically. Bentonville is already a culture adjustment for most all AA new hires, not having AA leaders in a building with over 2k is concerning

    Advice to Management

    More diverse leaders!!
