    Pros

    You don’t understand how big Walmart is until you work for them. Growing by $15 Billion every year. You get great responbility even in the entry level role managing $100 million dollar businesses. The people really make the job, everyone is down to earth and truly cares about you. This is a family company. Competitive pay, stock, 401k matching, etc

    Cons

    Time in chair rules make it hard to get promoted before the time is up. Being told that they want to promote you but can’t because of HR roles are extremely frustrating. Health care is great for big things like a knee replacement, but not so much for birth.

    Advice to Management

    Don’t use hr roles stop performers. It makes them leave

    Pros

    I have worked at WalmartLabs Carlsbad for 4 years as a software engineer and really like the team work culture, the new technologies we use, and the freedom to innovate in the retail supply chain, ecommerce and data analytics tools we build. The apps we build are used by independent suppliers, retail staff, warehouse managers and product innovators around the world. The office is modern with flexible seating arrangements, a great kitchen, gym, and game room. Management supports training, time for personal development, and even community service time. Compensation is good and recognizes performance.

    Cons

    With all of the company acquisitions and new markets being opened up, it is hard to keep up with the business needs for innovation.

    Advice to Management

    Keep focused on the customers and making it easier for them to get the products they need.
