    I worked at Sam's Club full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great company to work for if you are starting out your career. Very good advancement opportunities. Company has a strong culture that rewards individual effort and accomplishment.

    Cons

    Company is going through a transition now as it struggles, like all brick and mortar retail, to compete in the e-commerce arena. It has always been a low cost operator, but has tightened those expenses even more in an effort to stay compete

    Advice to Management

    Continue to keep the company's culture strong.
