    Pros

    Walmart is a family which seeks to ensure that everyone has a place in it. You can find a job doing anything here and work with any type of person. Location matters whether Bentonville or San Francisco.

    Cons

    Because of its massive size and inertia, the politics may become difficult and involved. Highly recommended that you seek a team and technology that suits your personality - innovative or stable.

    Advice to Management

    Try to help all team members feel like part of the Walmart family. Do not be fooled by the razzle dazzle of tech charlatans. Get the ladder climbing empire builders who do not love Sam Walton out. Reclaim your original startup mojo!

    I have been working at Walmart full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    at this time with all the changes, there are no pros to working here, accept that you collect a decent paycheck every two weeks.

    Cons

    Leadership, nonexistent they spend their time on the East Coast (that's where they are from) at that company that supposedly Walmart purchased (jet.com) It feels more like they bought Walmart and are turning it into this chaotic startup!!! What once felt like home and family, now feels like your on a death march.

    HR, what a joke. Disorganized, lacks leadership, clueless as too what there role in the company is..,.fyi, you're supposed to take care of you Associates/People!!!

    Advice to Management

    Stop thinking and acting so selfishly, think of the people who are helping and working hard to line your pockets!!! They deserve to be treated like humans. Maybe if you do that, you wouldn't be losing so many good people!!!
