    I have been working at Sam's Club full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    You are able to work nearly anywhere in the world in a position that suits your talent and comfort. I have worked for the company for over a decade and have always felt secure in my employment. My confidence in the company improves each year as I see the desire to grow never outweighs the well being of the people.

    Cons

    Compensation for front-line associates, bonus structure, costs associated with health care.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To be a destination for talent, baseline compensation needs to improve.
