    Pros

    Working in the Reston office of Walmart Labs feels like a much different company than headquarters. Management has placed a strong emphasis on cultivating a skilled, diverse team and it shows with the projects that we are executing on

    Cons

    You still work for Walmart which, as a huge Fortune 1 company, can be a little bureaucratic and disorganized at time

    Advice to Management

    Keep bringing interesting work to our office

    Pros

    Growth with the company is limited to the desire and motivation of the individual. You're able to collaborate with numerous leaders if you're driven to succeed.

    Cons

    Constant change at Walmart. If it wasn't for change there would not be the many opportunities for growth. That being said, the company preaches the 4 basic beliefs but with the multitude of incoming outside hires, the foundational belief and message is watered down and no longer supports the respect for the individual belief if you're salaried. This tends to be for hourly associates only.

    Advice to Management

    Be consistent with your message regarding 4 basic beliefs.

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

    Pros

    - Adoption of new and emerging technologies in some teams
    - Flexible timings and work from home

    Cons

    - Terrible middle management
    - Terrible work-life balance
    - Unreasonable demands
    - Workaholics (only) welcome
    - No respect for the individual
    - Favoritism
    - Politics
    - Failure to communicate expectations
    - Biggest thing is forced ranking. Employees are forced into a bell curve. The "worst performing employees" are fired.

    Advice to Management

    I am pretty sure Sam Walton is turning in his grave thinking of what this company has become. People are your greatest asset. Value them. Focusing only weaknesses and ignoring strengths will get you nowhere. Fire the workaholics....really. They are the ones that ruin the work culture of an otherwise great company.

    I worked at Walmart part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    1- Depending on your location, cashiers can be busy their whole shift which causes time to go by fast.
    2- The pay is petty decent for en entry level job
    3- If you enjoy speaking with a lot of new people, then you would enjoy being a cashier.

    Cons

    Standing alot ; management at my locaton constantly forgot to give breaks ; when its's not busy it can be very boring

    Advice to Management

    Try to remeber that the associates you are managing/supervising are working hard just like you and we would like breaks/to get off on time, as well.
