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

    Pros

    *Keep in mind this is from a engineering/QA/product mgmt POV:

    - Plenty of room to rise up and get that title if you can last long
    - Most business partners are pleasant to work with
    - There are lots of good people there, but many have left in the last ~2-3 years so not sure if that's a pro anymore

    Cons

    *Keep in mind this is from a engineering/QA/product mgmt POV:

    - Too many changes and its constant. They'll re-org every 1-1.5 years! People have had 5 different superiors in 1-2 years!
    - Morale is super low
    - Ridiculous timelines with ridiculous features with no resources
    - A bit like the blind leading the blind
    - No vision, and if there is/was it constantly changes
    - Some leadership and new folks they've hired since starting WalmartLabs are pretentious and not pleasant to work with.
    - Business partners often don't understand software development and the amount of time/resources it takes to build. I've been told, "well, aren't your agile? Doesn't that mean I will get my products even faster!"
    - No sense of change management whatsoever
    - Lots of politics
    - Some leaders are promoted so fast without much reason so they are not seasoned or groomed correctly
    - Benefits package compared to to other tech companies is a bit of a joke. Simply because it is retail.
    - Turnover is a huge issue.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you're serious about catching up to competitors you have to stick to a vision and organization for 5 years+. Be willing to invest in technology, your people and expect mistakes and losses in your business for the years to come! You can't have your pie and eat it too.

    I have been working at Walmart eCommerce full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Good technical talent. It is a mix where a lot of them are fresh out of school but have PhDs. Very few senior technical staff.

    Cons

    Most of the non-walmartlabs management that you have to deal with is quite political and extremely hierarchical in org.
    This goes down to the ground staff also. Case in point: I had parked my car in the one of many visitor parking spots because the garage was filled up completely. I was questioned as to why I had come in that late (11 am) by the security guard !!! This is one of many examples, but you get the idea.
    And yes, If you lose your badge, its 25$ to get a new one (out of your pocket :))

    Health benefits are really poor.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remains to be seen if the culture will survive since most of walmart has a very different culture.
