I have been working at Walmart full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Walmart can be a challenging company to work for at times, but it's worth it. I've moved up from the bottom, and I'm still moving. You can definitely make a career out of it, if you just stick with it.

Cons

With any retail environment, the job can be trying at times.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to the associates, a happy associate, is a happy store.

    I have been working at Walmart part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    some management teams will treat you well and make your time there great

    Cons

    management teams are not always stellar

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    for the good ones: keep it up, stay honest to your employees
    for the less than stellar: be honest, realistic, and reasonable. Your employees are people, not robots

    I have been working at Walmart full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great opportunities for lateral transfers within information systems and to the business side. Given the global nature of the company and the scope of the business, there are many opportunities to work with different problems and solutions

    Cons

    The more seniority you have within information systems, the less likely you are to have any type of technical work to do. Within 2 - 3 years, expect to spend the large majority of your time managing contractors or junior programmers and little or no time actually writing code or even designing applications. The company also lags behind in technology within the information systems area (but not the @Labs side). Developer workstations are severely locked down and obtaining development tools or libraries beyond the vanilla standard (Visual Studio, Eclipse) can take months, if they are even approved.
