    I have been working at Walmart full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Great place to work for. The management is composed for what has to be done. We're having complete end to end ownership of whatever we are doing.
    Work life balance is just fine. Get enough time to pursue personal interests. Compensation is good too (at par with all other big names)

    Cons

    couldn't find any as of now..

    I have been working at Walmart full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The company offers good facilities like cab to and fro work. It also have a well decked pantry stock and food options in the cafeteria for free.
    It is a fairly liberal workplace in terms of attire, interactions and others.
    The office provides a nice environment.

    Cons

    Outdated technologies often like ATG, and others which may not be what a fresh grad may want to work on to further his or her career.
    Hardly algorithmically challenging work, which would make one solve real technology problems. The problem solving is more for business problems.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need good work if you hire from top colleges.

    Pros

    good perks, nice pantry filled with stuffs, good work life balance, friendly work environment, chances of going outside India for business

    Cons

    technologies used in some teams are not up to mark, work not challenging/enough to satisfy freshers,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    hire freshers by sharing proper Job Description, not the generalised one across all teams.
