Pros

you get enough leeway to run the business your way, as long as you have integrity and do a good job there is minimal interference from corporate.

Cons

some of their latest policies and initiatives to capture new business and retain current customers leave a lot to be desired.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

allow us to give gift cards for transferred or new prescriptions.
cut down on the amount of paperwork given to patients with prescriptions. by my calculations, at the most conservative estimate if they would condense the patient handouts to 1 or 2 pages the company would save 30 million dollars, but this figure is probably 5 or 6 times that.

    Pros

    Walmart has a strong culture and good people. With Walmart's scale, you have the opportunity to make a big impact.

    Cons

    Because of the bigness of the organization, it can be hard to implement change. If you want to work in an agile environment, this might not be a good place for you. Some leaders let the scale of what they're responsible for go to their heads and act excessively self important. The culture is built around consensus, not rocking the boat.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure you foster an environment that can hear diverse voices or Walmart will stagnate.

    Pros

    I really cannot state any pros to working here

    Cons

    If you ever wondered why the staffing is so poor at Walmart, it all has to do with the store managers yearly bonus....less overhead, more profit, bigger bonus. These words actually were said by my store manager.
