    where to begin....

    1. as a company that has a moto of save money, live better....we bleed money like a stuck pig.

    2. upper leadership seems to have a different vision of technical capabilities of the technologies we currently have

    Advice to Management

    listen a little closer to your associates on all levels. changing the face of a company doesn't fix issues.

    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 worked at Walmart full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great people to work with, very knowledgeable and focused staff. Lots of opportunities for advancement. Ethics are an important part of the company. Great benefits, matching 401K, stock options, etc.

    Cons

    They changed the policy on remote work after I started there so when I needed to move back home I had to leave employment with them. If you want to live in Bentonville Arkansas then that wont matter. Since there is so much old technology, it sometimes conflicts with rolling out new projects.

    Advice to Management

    Review your policy on Remote work. Previously you were looking for remote engineers because you knew that finding talented workers that wanted to live in Bentonville was difficult at best.
