      I joined walmartLabs a couple years ago. Have been promoted twice. Make 270% of what I did before walmartLabs.

      Cur-throat in terms of work? Whatcha talkin' about man.
      If you wanna grow, you do above and beyond. If you wanna chill, you chill. No one's gonna kick you out.
      WalmartLabs jobs are safe.

    I've seen some of our lower performers at eBay get managed out and end up in higher positions at WalmartLabs.

      This. Leaving eBay to go to Walmart is a real step down. The people eBay manages out basically have an open door at Walmart. Talk to anyone at Walmart and you will hear that they just hire ex eBayers to try to copy the strategy. The CTO and head of product are both ex eBay as are many other senior folks.

      Why go and work copying eBay if you could earn more at eBay and learn more?

      Op, is there a route to transfer from Reston to CA now? Asking coz a friend of mine has an offer for Reston but is more interested in moving to CA.

      Yeah once you are inside of WMT you can pretty much go anywhere.

    Go to eBay. It’s a better company and culture.

      You must be on that shitty Altus C3 team. Have you kiss Sunnets ass today?

    eBay sucks! Still stuck in the 90s. Half of the front end s stack are still on V3 (which is more than 10 years old. If it wasn't for the golden handcuffs that I have, I would have left this shit hole

      What makes you think Walmart labs doesn’t have legacy stuff? Any company that has been in business for as long as ebay has - will have substantial tech debt. Have you worked in any other companies?

      While some of what you said is true, Walmart still kicks our ass in so many area. I know plenty of people at both company. One perfect example, Walmart is now end to end Https, and where the heck are we? You can keep dreaming that your c3 shit is awesome, but as a customer, I can tell you it is pure shit.

    I would say take eBay or go somewhere else. You could gain new perspective, learn new things, work with new folks instead of moving internally
