    I worked at Walmart full-time

    Pros

    - Well paid - The amazing feeling when you quit

    Cons

    - Management refuse to listen to anyone under them. Even if it's the entire development team of 40+ people. - Teams think its fine to build in security flaws if it helps them test in production easier. - Developers are obsessed with reinventing the wheel. - Verbally abusive product managers. - 50% of the week in meetings. - Lack of ownership. - Everyone says "Agile", nobody knows what it means. - Everything managed in massive excel sheets or documents by hand. - Jira has been configured to be as painful and unnecessary as humanly possible.

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

    Pros

    - Pretty good pay & benefits (but being stripped away)

    Cons

    - Burdoned with poor decisions of people above you with no way to change things. - You will focus on the 80% of work with 20% impact. - Things move at a snails pace, and only when upper management decide it. This was the most hierarchical, slow moving company I ever worked with. - Poor work / life balance (On-call weekends every 6-8 weeks, you lose a good chunk of your weekend, meetings dragging on until after normal work hours, culture of long hours, "flexible" once you're way over contraced hours) - Micromanagement from top to bottom - Large overspecialised teams focused on a single technology. No room for growth or opportunities to learn. - Lies from management and recruiters when joining. You could interview for one team and find out that your team is gone by then end of your first month. - Big beaurocratic, slow moving company, lumbering towards failiure.
