    Upper Management is great, clientele is the guy/gal next door. Company culture is "Be Healthy", nothing wrong with that. Encouraged to get out in the community and make a difference. Most important is the encouragement to have a healthy work/life balance.

    Cons

    Salary low, but better than no salary

    Pros

    HD Supply is a company who believes in the happiness and well being of its employees. It has many initiatives in place that allow a person to maintain a healthy working relationship directly at work and socially outside of work. They promote health, family, and overall integrity

    Cons

    HD Supply is a spin off of Home Depot, it hasn't yet found it's full growth potential. It recently went public and that made it change some financial objectives by way of "cutting excess fat". Some employees got laid off, a very small percentage, and some extra spending was cut back by way of perks, etc, but that's typical for any healthy functional profitable company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to lead from the top down, keep your ears open to suggestions and allow feedback that is healthy to assist in the growth and prosperity of your company. Continue to offer excellent perks to those who show Best Effort.

    Pros

    great managers the company good benefits the good pay

    Cons

    corporate change in directions regarding market share causes confusion within the ranks.
    stop trying to capture all the business and focus on the business you have to solidify you're standing in that channel

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    monthly council meetings with all levels including entry level would help.

    Pros

    Good management. Great benefits. Company cares about employees.

    Cons

    There are no generic cons. Great place to work. For me there is a technology fit issue. The company's IT technology focus is not mine, unfortunately, or I would never choose to look for another employer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more progressive with IT technologies. Don't be so dependent on few large vendors. Do more with open source.
