    Pros

    Superb culture and great atmosphere. The corporate office is amazing with plenty of food options both on campus and off. You feel part of a family working there with several group outings, team build activities and recognition. They are also big on hiring from within and developing talent. By far one of the best companies I've worked for.

    Cons

    Politics exist in every company. Middle management struggles with the changes that the company is undergoing. Command and control also exists but the company is trying to break down those barriers. Work life balance can sometimes be challenging depending on your role.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to listen to employees. Allow them to do what they do best and always provide support. Follow the model of a servant leader and employees will remain loyal to the company.

    Pros

    One can grow and develope into management with the aid of computer based lessons and then within just a few minutes place what you have learned into use. You also have the opportunity to provide customer service to a wide base of the local population. This takes into consideration, different languages, different religious views and different values.

    Cons

    Leadership is struggling to do away with the, Good ole Boy, type senerio where only if you fit into the club can you go any higher than store level. Very bad not just at Lowe's but in all Home Improvement stores.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote individuals based upon their achievements not what current supervisors feel. This will help do away with the, Good ole Boy senerio, Additionally, promote from outside the store in. This will aid in the previous as it will also allow Management canidates to live up to the policy that they can be moved anywhere within the US, and not stagnate with in one store, one city and one state.
