    I have been working at Walmart eCommerce (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I never thought I would have this much fun right out of college. I manage a multi million dollar business as part of Walmart and Jet.com.

    Cons

    Rent in the bay area can be a killer, so watch out for that.

    Pros

    Upward mobility is almost infinite. There are so many places you can take your career.

    Cons

    New CEO requires entry level needs to graduate from top 20 schools...if you're already above entry-level you still have open opportunities (as of 2017)

    Advice to Management

    "Book smarts" and "street smarts" are equally important. Look at ALL qualities of your applicant, "pedigree" of school should not be the only deciding factor.

    I have been working at Walmart eCommerce full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - with all the acquisitions, Walmart is showing interest in going to the next level
    - interesting new work in future
    - more focus on technology

    Cons

    - management clearly does not care about employees and it's been very clear with the policies they have been coming up with. Like moving to flex pto model but No cash out of the existing pto. Technically you lose all pto hours you have accrued/earned so far.
    - poor work life balance
    - management keeps starting high profile initiatives and kill it half way through the development - major waste of time and money

    Advice to Management

    - start caring about employees not just profits
    - You are already having a hard time attracting good talent in the Bay Area. Making your existing employees unhappy makes it worse for you.
    - Valley is a small place; word spreads pretty quickly!
    - you can't go far without good people!

    Pros

    Feel like you're contributing to something bigger than yourself. That your role and the company you work for has global scale and impact.

    Cons

    Trying to be a technology company but still bogged down by a lot of bureaucratic processes and ways of working.

    Advice to Management

    The message from the C-level management was great and exactly what we need to do from a strategy perspective. However, putting those words into action by the mid-senior level management was sometimes lacking.

    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.
