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

    Pros

    Minus my actual manager, I really enjoyed everyone I worked with. People are sincerely nice.

    Cons

    There was a constant atmosphere of "re-org" and hurry-up-and-wait for the entire year I was there. Everyone was ALWAYS STRESSED. I know that was the reason several people left while I was there.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate better with your employees; they're not children.

    Pros

    Great work/life balance and requirements for the year are defined clearly. You are the expert of the tasks you are assigned to!

    Cons

    Difficult to move up the chain as there are no expectations about goals set. Processes are set, so there isn't much flexibility to wear many hats and be innovative.

    Advice to Management

    Set performance expectations with your employees for moving up and give more perks such as catered lunches. The happier the employee, the higher the retention rate!

    Marc Lore (CEO) from Jet is awesome
    Great place to start your career
    Not long hours

    Cons

    Not a lot of talent
    Parking is terrible
    Management is clueless
    Old technology

    Advice to Management

    CEO they hired from Jet is awesome. Breath of fresh air. I sure hope he cleans up @Labs. We have mainly C talent. The person in charge out here is a hang over from the previous regime and doesn't know what he is doing.
