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

CSA IV (Former Department Manager) (Current Employee) Neosho, MO

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

ConsHigh 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 Senior ManagementRemember 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!

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Went from a fun work place to a miserable work place.

    Pricing Coordinator (Former Employee) Sicklerville, NJ

    I worked at Lowe's full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros: Coworkers are great. The rare parties we do get are… Cons: Management do one thing, but preach another. CEO is money hungry and over the last 3 years all the bonus's have… Advice to Senior Management: Treat all employees like equals. If an employee does something wrong, they get fired, if a manager does the same thing, they just get talked… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More

    Awful management, low wages, and no incentive.

    Customer Service Associate (Former Employee) Kerrville, TX

    I worked at Lowe's full-time for more than a year

    Pros: If you are in desperate need of a job. Or if you want to work a low wage, not enjoyable job for… Cons: Micro-managing. Bosses were jerks and I know everyone says that, but out… Advice to Senior Management: Practice what you preach! Don't expect other's to do things that you have not done and are not… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
