      Pros

      unlimited PTO snacks in the kitchens

      Cons

      Bad work life balance, category specialist role is a joke, felt like high school, operates on favoritism. Walmart has destroyed Jet.

      Pros

      * Very good tech stack in F# * The base pay is competitive * Good if you want to work for Walmart * Fantastic work-life balance, tons of free time

      Cons

      * Total comp is okay but not competitive * Huge growth of middle management post-acquisition leading to inefficiencies * Pain to coordinate with Walmart Labs people * Walmart Labs has a completely different engineering culture and much lower bar for hiring * Lots of internal politics between original Jet and Walmart ppl

      Jet was great while it lasted...

      Pros

      When I joined it was an awesome place to work. Great work life balance, work from home, great culture, great teams, and interesting projects.

      Cons

      Over time Jet was deprioritzed as Walmart became the focal point. Jet was literally non-existent when I left, managed by about 10 people. Walmart e-commerce culture is toxic. The category specialist program is chaotic and offers no career trajectory. When I left 95% of the perks were gone.

      Gutted by Walmart.com

      Pros

      - Decent brand to have on - Understand how large bureaucratic company functions - Pay bands are broad, so pay can be competitive if you negotiate correctly

      Cons

      - Work and culture is not as advertised: - Culture: - Bell curve performance evaluation system isn't followed uniformly across the biz - Extremely hierarchical - Little-to-no transparency across the organization - Work: - There were only a handful of associates left working on Jet.com by July 2019. Many Jet.com postings are actually Walmart.com jobs. It's unfortunate that HR continues advertise Walmart.com jobs under the guise of a 'nimble-agile-startup'. - There are several instances of associates being transferred to new business units with little-to-no-say in the matter. - Poor work-life-balance for the majority of teams. Optics appear to matter a lot in the Walmart world.

      Only do it if you need money

      Pros

      For someone right out of undergrad, you will make about 90k including all the bonuses which is good!The company has a huge name and overall you do get exposure to a lot of different tools and cross functional teams. you do manage multimillion dollar e-commerce business which is impressive responsibility. The perks are great in terms of all the free food (eggs, biscuits, chips, cookies, sparkling water, coffees, milk, etc.) and free gym, commuter benefits, etc. After about a year, everyone's salary increases 15k and additional 12-15k bonus. So again, money is good.

      Cons

      horrible work life balance. if you get out at 6 it is considered early. People aren't encouraged to take lunch breaks and also aren't encouraged to leave at a reasonable hour. Most people eat at their desks and leave at 7pm on a good day. This job is also very high pressure and everyone shares the same sad morale. Also, as stated in the reviews below the performance reviews are on a bell curve which makes everyone extremely competitive with eachother and honestly the feedback you get isn't even truly based on your category performance. Instead, it is based on if your manager likes you or not on a personal level. for the team I was on, it was SO obvious who the favorites were. Most people only stay if they choose money over their happiness. I am so thankful I left.
