    I have been working at Walmart full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Only life. You don't need to know how to code.

    Cons

    Like to hire friends and family members with no Technical backgrounds. The political battle is serious. Low diversity (because of the politics). No good talent.

    Advice to Management

    The hiring process is ridiculous. Need more technical question in the interview, instead of hiring friends and family members. Please increase the diversity. Do not hire people who like to do the politics but not coding.

    I worked at Walmart full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    None that I can think of at the moment. Just a place where I would get a paycheck. I met some of my closets friends there...that is all.

    Cons

    Meetings that take up development time. Higher up people have no sense or idea of technology, all too business sided. Culture is more trying to "beat" Amazon rather than being innovative and being its own company. Vendors have more say and power in projects than actual associates. No transparency at all with managers and directors. Work was not simulating and constant changes and really no guidance impeded a lot of development....

    Advice to Management

    Promote an environment that doesn't involve trying to beat competition but being more creative and innovative. Promote people who are more technically savvy. Invest more in associates learning rather than investing on vendors doing the entire project.
