Structured atmosphere. Know your place,
Growth has overcome culture. The statement of " The People Make The Difference " has been replaced by book smart, associate unfriendly managers that have replaced seasoned veteran's who grown the company. If you have 5 or more years, watch your back.
Advice to Management
Change strategies of upper level management to listen to the concerns of the associates that work under them and give them the tools to do their job to be successful. Stop making unreasonable demands for productivity.. .
You will learn a lot working at Walmart. Things change fast and they are always looking to improve things. They don't skimp when it comes to making investments to improve producitivity by adding new hardware and software. One thing for certain, change is guaranteed. So if you don't like change, you will not like it there.
You work a lot of hours and very hard and often get little recognition for your hard work. The culture that Walmart refers to is primarly that of the hourly associate. Management culture is sometimes very destructive - dog eat dog. In general your base rate will not be near that in the industry. It was not uncommon for a direct report to make more than their boss.
Advice to Management
It is an incredible work experience and it is a great place to learn a lot. But if you are afraid of digging in and getting your hands dirty and working hard, this is not the place for you. It can be a long term career with many options, but you have to pretty much give your life to the company. And be prepared to be upset when your direct report is making more than you.
