    I worked at Walmart eCommerce full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Learned a ton in business and eCommerce, had a lot of autonomy and opportunity to grow a business.

    Cons

    Methods of managing long-term, multi-month projects such as seasonal campaigns would change mid-way through, and the organization was always changing. It made for some sudden big changes. If you learn to expect those and ride them out, you'll be ok.

No clear career paths for employees

  4. "Tier 1 company want to be: stay away"

    • Senior Management
    Current Employee - Senior Marketing Manager in San Bruno, CA

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

    Pros

    -company is aspiring to be an eCommerce/digital powerhouse and investing in systems and hiring -if you are in Silicon Valley, benefits are great as they realize they have to compete with tier one FANG employees -lots of young, bright ambitious colleagues and a few industry heavy hitters works there -competitive pay at mid to senior level

    Cons

    -while there are some bright people who work here, there are too many bozos (c-minus to d level people) who are barely competent in their fields and excel in few things other then dodging work and using Walmart's bureaucracy to dodge work /stall. This is no Google or Facebook with their high performance cultures -cafeteria aesthetic/food are horrible -tech support is dominated by people who speak very accented English to the point where it's impossible to understand them. They excel at closing tickets without actually helping anyone with their issues. Extra negative star for tech support at Walmart eCommerce. Failing this company and everyone who works there -there is a guy who snores like a Hyppo on the San Bruno to Sunnyvale shuttle and the timid betas who work there are all afraid to address this issue appropriately

  5. "Good place to work overall"

    4.0
    Current Employee - Category Lead 

    I have been working at Walmart eCommerce full-time

    Pros

    Clear management. Growth in company. Unique place in ecommerce and store

    Cons

    Political to move up in position. Management differs by division and vision isn’t always clear or uniform across divisions and departments

  6. "A Good Place for a Quick Stop... But Not a Place to Build a Career Long-Term"

    I worked at Walmart eCommerce full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    This position offers a good crash course into the many facets of eCommerce (ie planning, buying, marketing, etc) and the opportunity to take ownership over your work quickly. I also really appreciated the flexibility to work remotely that contributed to good work-life balance.

    Cons

    First, the company as a whole is really struggling to build out tools that are reliable and useful -- you will spend a significant amount of time troubleshooting or teaching others how to jerry-rig the systems. Second, the organization is also highly political and your compensation/promotion are directly related to how your manager perceives you not necessarily the caliber of your work. Additionally, the standards for promotion/pay skew wildly between the different categories-- some categories are notorious for lack of promotion opportunities and poor culture in general. Finally, the quality of the talent has declined significantly over the past 18 months. The company originally limited recruiting to individuals from top schools and interesting work experience but has revised this strategy and diluted the talent pool.

    I worked at Walmart eCommerce full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good bonus structure CEO is highly motivating Interesting enough work being in eCommerce

    Cons

    Management does not listen to their employees If you work closely with the executive team you have unrealistic deadlines (that cause long hours/late nights to meet them) Expect extended hours - my direct manager even specifically said 'I expect 50 hours a week minimum from my team members' No work life balance They don't pay fairly. I was making 20k less than my male counterpart (he was a level lower than me - associate manager vs manager). Don't expect the company to protect you as an employee. I filed a harassment claim against my manager, and it took them more than six months to conclude the investigation. All the while, I was expected to continue working for that manager - who repeatedly harassed me during the course of the investigation. I ended up just quitting because it got so uncomfortable and HR had to 'wait for the investigation to conclude' before transferring me or offering me a different position within the company.
