    Great monetary benefits.
    Always something to learn.

    Cons

    To many people issues.
    High level of expectation with limited resources/ tools.
    Tech is outdated. They're trying to catch up but it might not be fast enough.

    Advice to Management

    Good for people with minimal commitments. Work life balance is 70/30 on favor of Wal-Mart.

    I have been working at Walmart (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Decent salary and bonus. Deferred profit sharing and stock option program is great! Employees are great to work with. A good store manager makes all the difference!

    Cons

    Work/life balance is not good and office politics can create unintended barriers. Benefits could be better but at least they offer them.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on work ethic, performance management and training and development, not your friends!

    I have been working at Walmart full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Employees are protected by company policies and procedures. Open door policy allows for anonymous employee complaints to be discussed without retaliation. Health benefits are good. Profit sharing, bonus & employee discounts; perkopolis & discount card, paid overtime after 8 hour day and or 40 hour week. Paid vacation time off, ranging from 2 weeks to 5 weeks yearly depending on the employee & time served with the company. Exciting atmosphere; seasonal displays & festive environment. Highly diversified workplace. Always keep in mind that the company wants to try to keep the staff they've trained. There are many avenues to assist employees to achieve overall job satisfaction.

    Cons

    It depends on the location. The hours of operation and coverage or staffing vary depending on location. Individual success is heavily reliant on team effort.

    Advice to Management

    The right location plays a huge factor in overall job satisfaction.

    I worked at Walmart full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good place to conform to mediocrity
    Good learning to take elsewhere - very high consistent turnover

    Cons

    Cheap, unhealthy, toxic work environment - the building is a former warehouse. Dust everywhere.
    Political managers that are weak leaders

    Advice to Management

    Do a few rounds of mass layoffs to trim the useless managers that have been present for the last 10+ years adding no value yet pretending to do so
