    I worked at Lowe's full-time

    Pros

    Steady paycheck. Had some good people on my team. Liked my actual job... when I was allowed to do it.

    Cons

    Micromanagement. Too extreme to be believed.
    KoolAid sessions. Just ask someone about the "LEF room." When they explain it to you, they aren't exaggerating.
    Leadership thinks "leading" is worrying about what Home Depot is doing.
    Your core job is not important. All they worry about is are you keeping up with the 3247 daily emails... 3215 of which are a waste of time, what project are you working on, are you working late
     each day, the list just goes on and on.
    In spite of the lip service, many above you loose site of the fact that you are there to support the stores, and that means do your job... not all the other BS they deem to be important.
    No one will make a decision!!!! And they won't allow you to make a decision.
    The list just goes on and on. Unfortunately I'd have to say that working in the corporate office is simply a toxic environment. Truly so. It's a shame as there are some good people there... most of which are hunting another job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean out the top 15 people and start over.
    Also, look at all 20 year employees. Many of them are paying lip service to the LEF changes but after the meetings it's right back to the old way of operating.
