    Pros

    Walmart.com gives an associate an opportunity to move up and be promoted from within it's
    own structure.

    Cons

    However, they take about a year or longer to notice it. The delay is a bit too long.
    Especially if the associate is a known hard worker and trade specialist.

    Advice to Management

    An effort to retain and notice highly specialized talent would be in their best interest.

    Pros

    Job stability at fair market salary

    Cons

    Very strong groups. Difficult for outsider with no prior connections to grow in company. Some senior management extremely weak in management. Very hard for senior/experienced new people to join and work

    Advice to Management

    More fairness needed. Some of the senior managers are extremely inside looking into their own groups, many of which consist of people they have known from previous employers. The promotions and opportunities seem extremely biased. This also leads to a culture of sycophancy. Extremely difficult for outsiders, even with very good knowledge and experience to grow and have a satisfactory work environment.
