    I worked at The Home Depot

    Pros

    Home Depot as a company is a great place to work, depending on the department at the corporate office you are in. The customer care department has great employees and they work hard. The profit sharing is great. The training was extensive, but you learn valuable information about how to master your job and the products/services.

    Cons

    The department has management that needs people and soft skills. The work is very stressful do to how the management drives the employees. The pay is not commensurate with the position.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice to management is to be more transformational opposed to transactional. By making the employees comfortable the metrics will come. Do not choose who advances by personal thoughts.
