Great place to start, great place to work

IT Developer (Current Employee)
Atlanta, GA

I have been working at Home Depot

ProsThe people are amazing. Everybody genuinely loves their jobs and people are very upbeat. Management listens to you and you get recognized for hard work. Throughout the company, the Store Support Center (SSC - Corporate Headquarters) is looked upon as being a great support system for the front-line associates in the stores. It's not a top down hierarchy, but an inverted pyramid company. Everybody shares information with each other and nobody is left out of the loop.

ConsThe pay is competitive, but not stellar. Entry-level positions are pretty good, but should be labeled a bit differently, due to the nature of the positions. It seems like there are too many contractors working at Home Depot. Instead of hiring new grads or experienced people full-time, THD hires a lot of contractors through recruiting firms. Even some of the recruiters are contractors.

Advice to Senior ManagementShow people that you care across the board. Make it easier for your employees to innovate and put less restrictions on new ideas. There are a lot of very entrepreneurial people working at THD and the company is missing out on some of their ideas, including recent graduates that come into the job with a completely new perspective.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
