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

    Pros

    Great engineers and coders. Work life balance. Utilization of newest technologies.

    Cons

    Walmart is a huge company, so you're very disconnected from business decisions. There is also a ranking system to get raises and promotions. There is a forced bell curve for employee performance, so someone is always going to be screwed.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the ranking system and keep the standards high for new hires.
