    Is this within MT org? If yes, run as fast as you can in the opposite direction

      Yes, I'm in MT. Very shitty place. ML team has no
      clue what they are doing. This place is going to come crashing down and I am planning to run before that

      What is x4 level ?

    • Walmart / Eng QTFP86
      It is Senior Software Engineer. One level below Staff and one level above SE 3. They call it time freeze zone. It is hard for many to make it from x4 to x5, people either wait 4-5 years or they do LC and gtfo themselves after knowing that hard reality.

    Join only if you have no competing offer, heard only bad things recently about tech stack and culture there. You will go many years back in terms of career. There was a thread recently on blind on culture at Walmartlabs, you can search for it for more details. They don’t have desks to sit, space to park car, restrooms to shit, etc. Residents in nearby area hate it when WalmartLabs employees park their car near their homes.

    I second the advice to not join walmartLabs. Not for the tech though. There are some very good engineers and Data scientists and the work is great too in some teams. But the attitude of the management is very bad. They don't care if engineers are happy and not bothered to retain them. No place to sit and no place to park your car. After 1 week of this ordeal you will curse yourself for deciding to join Walmart. Most of the good folks I know are still here because of either visa issues or upcoming GC processing, otherwise anyone worth their salt have already left or leaving very soon. walmartLabs is a sinking ship now, join only if u have absolutely no other offers.

    If you see a bear in the hills, don't stop. Continue running, there's a greater chance you will survive the bear

    Stock is low. Ask for at least $60K per year.
