    Pros

    You can find some highly intelligent and strategic thinkers here. The company systematically rewards familial culture and creating personal relationships. Great place to work!

    Cons

    People are too nice and don't hold each other accountable to failure.

    Advice to Management

    Spend some time building credibility among lower level associates.

    Pros

    Peers. Peers are better than no peers

    Cons

    Reactionary. Not strategic. Loss of karenann Terrill has changed the culture in a bad way. No longer feels a positive work environment.

    Advice to Management

    Walmart is not a bank for jet.com.
    Stop reacting to what the competition, such as amazon, does. Have a strategy. Stay true to your core and execute on it. And, for crying out loud, stop the fiefdoms and creation of duplicating efforts. You are cannabslizing yourself.

    Use data to gain insights to make decisions. Stop reporting.

    Pros

    The company still has so much potential. It would take very little effort from new management to embrace experienced employees.

    Cons

    Leadership lacks direction and doesn't respect the employees. They don't welcome any skills or views that differ from their own

    Advice to Management

    You don't need to change everything and everyone to leave your mark and drive the business forward.

    I have been working at Walmart eCommerce as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    -Recent rapid changes (new CEO, reorg, acquisitions) make for some pretty exciting, focused work and tightened teams.
    -Big, meaty, challenging problems to tackle; freedom and flexibility to find a solution and try to solve
    -Easy parking in San Bruno; secure parking garage
    -Complimentary coffee/tea/drinks; fruit 2 days/week
    -Bright, modern office that isn't Silicon Valley gaudy

    Cons

    As much as they tout being quick and nimble like a start up, the truth is it's a huge corporate company (Fortune 1 remember) heavy with bureaucracy, red tape, and blockers everywhere. Good luck trying to find out who owns what or having anyone answer your email. It's amazing how any real, tangible work gets done with so many silos, non-communication, lack of knowledge, and incompetence within the company.

    If you're a contractor...beware! I can't tell you how excited I was to work here only to be incredibly disappointed and disheartened. It may depend on your department/team, but the separation and isolation of contractors is pretty astonishing -- it's like being a second class citizen and you're treated with such snobbiness and disdain from the 'elite' full time associates. Sure they have no problem using you and dumping work on you but some FTEs won't even make eye contact with you in the hall or acknowledge you as a fellow colleague...so sad.

    Advice to Management

    Stop trying to chase Amazon -- you'll never beat them or come close. Focus on your biggest asset, core competency -- the brick and mortar stores by being more omni channel and creating a seamless, superior online/in-store customer shopping experience. Utilize your awesome supply chain infrastructure too.

    Stop buying silly companies (Moosejaw, ModCloth, Bonobos, etc) -- you'll never get the coveted millennials, high income consumer.

    Pros

    Top talent, latest technologies, nice people, competitive compensation, growth opportunity.

    Cons

    Parking at Sunnyvale is an issue. The parking garage is a bit far and the shuttle provided takes about 10 minutes. Management is actively working on a solution.
    Green card processing is a general problem facing every company now. It's possible that it's a problem like every place else.

    Advice to Management

    Please fix the parking problem in Sunnyvale

    I worked at Walmart eCommerce full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Walmart gave me the opportunity to work on something that nobody else can do. I can thank them for that. Furthermore, the culture and values of the company have made me a better person. I had the opportunity to travel internationally and truly build world-class teams. The company has the resources to really lean into strategic initiatives, and treats its people with the utmost care and respect.

    Cons

    I can't think of anything bad to say. Please note that the CEO is new to the company, but I believe that he will do a good job.
