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

    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.
