    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!!

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Pay is reasonable based on experience for NWA area. Base pay as a Project Manager II is 92K and with last year’s bonus of 18K put me at 110K. So the money is right compared to other companies in the area. There are highly talented individuals and an opportunity to build your knowledge base.

    Cons

    The Walmart culture has diminished to a cut throat, highly political environment that no longer respects the individual. The Open Door Policy is disgraceful and will get you on the path to termination. Too many organizational changes with entire departments eliminated. Poor direction from leadership, having a direct impact on evaluations. Political in who not what you know. Be very cautious around Millennials!! Walmart is on the path of lowering the age of its workforce. Not a good place to work if you’re over 50

    Advice to Management

    Stop kicking long term associates to the curb in order to hire the 2 Millennials after terminating the senior associate.

    Walmart is/has and continues to be, a low rated organization to work for. Create an environment of collaboration in lieu of one of political strife. Look at the list of tenured individuals fired, harassed and those you’ve retaliated against and ask your self WHY! Management is out of control

    Pros

    The company will promote and train from within if the associate shows they have good work ethic- you can't teach a good work ethic

    Cons

    They layoff every year-it's not fun being worried about your job every January

    Advice to Management

    Do the layoffs once and do them right so we don't have to do this again.
