    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.
