    I have been working at Walmart eCommerce full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Friendly environment including people Nice facility and office setting Decent pay package Free snacks, popcorn

    Cons

    There appear to be no FSA accounts that you can use. Unlimited PTO schedule sometime appears to be intimating.

    Advice to Management

    Is it possible to add FSA account benefit?

    I have been working at Walmart eCommerce full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I guess good work life balance, comp is somewhat ok

    Cons

    This place can hardly be called a tech company, outdated technologies, unstable infrastructures, very limited cloud resources, lack of expertise in its own cloud infra team, low efficient cross team communications. Managers tend to avoid making key decisions and are good at playing a long term doing-nothing game. Undocumented hiring criteria and poorly adopted annual review (now it's biannual) put a lot of people into unqualified positions. If you're looking for a place to grow as IC, don't waste your time here.

    I have been working at Walmart eCommerce full-time

    Pros

    Work life balance Good pay Work on latest technologies Ability to change teams, if bored/dissatisfied Few good folks

    Cons

    Bureaucratic, political environment Insecure management, no clue about what's going on Quite a few mediocre folks around, but too many in management What's with some folks having extremely poor communication skills? Please don't hire folks who have contracting history as FTE. A lot of folks who are here for too long(you'll find many) tend to be bad. I think they are stuck here mostly because they can't find opportunities outside, and even if they do, they pay is lower than here. Sometimes the whole family barring their child(as they are not in work age yet) work here. Since they take home a significant pay home that way, they think they are very secure and really don't put much effort in work. They tend to be worse, are nasty to work with. They just don't give a damn about anything and play survival + rotating b/w teams game. Firing such folks even if you know they don't produce quality work is just hard. The more friends and relatives you have working here, the more rooted you are and hard to uproot. Usually acquihires are given good bonus+huge bump up in designation & responsibilities that they think are masters of universe and too smart, but they aren't. If you look them up, their career is just a joke.

    Advice to Management

    Please don't create your dynasty, have ethics and show some spine. Get rid of poor performers, reward meritocracy.
