    Pros

    The ability that you can influence and work with scale is incredible.

    Cons

    The fleeting and ever changing leadership is a constant business disruption. It is difficult to move a career forward as network relationships for advancements are virtually useless.

    Advice to Management

    Unwind the cultural divide where being "nice" means not having real conversations about real problems and accountability. Start being real.

    I have been working at Walmart eCommerce full-time

    Pros

    Good people. Supportive co-workers. Easy work/life balance. Decent benefits

    Cons

    Sorely lacking in effective leadership. Poor cross-department communication. Mediocracy is celebrated. Innovation is all talk. Chasing Amazon's tail and losing that chase. No room for career growth unless you are brown-noser.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your teams. Step aside and empower. Celebrate creativity rather than squander it.

    I worked at Walmart eCommerce as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The work environment was pretty laid back as long as you get your work done. Lots of autonomy to focus on your work.

    Cons

    Personally wasn't challenging enough for me and wish I had learned more on the job.

    Advice to Management

    I was contracting at Walmart Global eCommerce along with others from the same staffing agency. My contract was getting close to the end and since I had so many projects assigned to me, I thought I was going to be automatically renewed. Not only was my contract not renewed, which would have been fine with me if my manager (or anyone else) gave me a heads up, but they decided to disable my badge and account so I wasn't able to get into the building or log into my work laptop to communicate with my team to let them know the situation.

    I still had 5 more days left of my contract so I at least expected to be at work for the remaining days. A little heads up that they were going to revoke my access would have been nice.

    I highly recommend avoiding employment at Walmart. It's notorious for being a terrible place to work.

    Pros

    - Good $, bonus and RSU

    Cons

    - Amazon is eating them alive and they are struggling to find a cohesive strategy
    - incredible churn in the team, especially Finance.
    - Horrible leaders in finance and operations (under statement), lack of how e-commerce P&L works at CFO level.

    Advice to Management

    a Leader who hasn't delivered P&L results in past 5 yrs won't do so in future as well? so why bet on same leaders while churning the bottom !

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

    Pros

    - Work is pretty straight forward
    - Team environment and people are easy to work with
    - very relaxed during off seasons but sometimes can get busy

    Cons

    - Management should provide more incentives for contract workers like option/timeline of prospective conversion
    -work can get tedious and repetitive

    Advice to Management

    Contract workers do the same work as some FT positions, so they should be treated equally in all prospects.

    Pros

    Great People. Lots of Passion.

    Cons

    Cultural Ambiguity. A combination of old school (Arkansas), new school (San Bruno), small start-up (Jet).

    Advice to Management

    Follow Netflix' approach and really drive a consistent culture of the top behaviors we expect from the associates.

    Pros

    The customer is always #1, and the employees are just as important. Great camaraderie. And, those Bentonville folks are pretty awesome, too! I was lucky to work with a super awesome and caring management and group of people.

    Cons

    I do not have any cons.

    Pros

    I work on a great team, with folks who support each other and want each other to succeed. We are given the opportunity to create new experiences, however sometimes that change comes slowly...

    Cons

    Walmart is a large and slow moving boat. Not all bad - the organization would usually rather do something right than do a sloppy job, but it can be averse to change.
