    Former Employee - Graphic Designer in Mississauga, ON (Canada)

    I worked at WalMart Canada as a contractor (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The pros were working at home, at your own time, own computer and flexable timeline. Very little pressure since it's something that your enjoy doing.

    Cons

    There's really no cons in freelancing and working at home. If I were to say, I'll probably say no face to face contact. Working with each buyer was all emailed based, receiving and delivering final files.
