I have been working at Lowe's full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Good ethics and strong experienced leadership. Fair pay and regular annual raises.

Cons

More mature company with less growth means less room for advancement and less open positions. Office politics where people know each other or are even related.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be more open about reorganizations. Reduce office politics. Be more willing to pay better to keep more loyal and talented employees.

    I worked at Lowe's part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    They were willing to work with my school schedule as I am currently a college student. There is plenty of growth opportunities with in the company. Most of the managers there started off in a lower position at lowes.

    Cons

    The pay is not the best, but works for a college student

    It was better when we were a Home Improvement Warehouse ~ not Sears with a lumber yard.

    I have been working at Lowe's full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    benefits, cheap stocks, 401k, safe environment to work within, localized cook outs or meal catered for special recognition's .... but that's it.

    Cons

    High School environment with all the drama and back stabbing you find on kids tv. Upper management has their own agenda and won't promote people they aren't tight with. No upward mobility. Company is economically stagnant with a very poor business model and leadership from the top ~ trying to reinvent the wheel. Very little monetary incentive to prove your worth to the company now that spiffs are gone. Very poor morale. Over priced merchandise for what it is, coming from China. Gosh ~ I could go on and on .....

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember its the little guy breaking their backs every day to make the company successful. True leadership doesn't come with a title, and people should receive equal opportunities to advance. Look at your pay structure ~ How wealthy do the top exec's need to be? How many over paid directors do you really need? If there isn't any room to advance, pay the lower ranks better so they can provide for their family's and offer stock bonuses to them too, just as you would to the upper ranks. Bring in more reasonably priced and higher quality merchandise. Provide real-time field training for merchandise we're selling. Stop bringing in people to fill management positions that worked for companies with a poor growth record or that went into bankruptcy ~ they mostly have no benefit for the growth of the company .... promote from within. And above all ~ read all of these reviews posted by unhappy employees!
