I worked at Office Depot full-time (less than an year)

Pros

I joined the Ecommerce team with great expectations. Found that couple of directors were quite knowledgable but the team was quite disorganized.

Cons

SQ management was pathetic, they did not know anything literrally. Sorry to say this but I personally felt that the SQ team's Director and Sr. Manager were not capable to supervise even the store associates forget about software engineers. SQ Testers were experienced guys, but seemed like they were forced to run some weird kind of checklists for no matter what are the changes in codes. Due to the availability of huge SQ team, Development managers do not care much on Unit testing. With this very bad combination of Dev and SQ management many defects get leaked in production for the Users every release.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

With current management you can reach no where near the Top in Ecommerce Retail sector.

    I worked at Office Depot full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Anyone may survive for years without being productive in Ecommerce Testing department as the management don't know anything about technology, business and domain.

    Cons

    They have thousands of unnecessary test cases on the name of which their manual and automation testers keep passing time. Management was 100% dependent on development managers for test planning and strategy. It was obvious as the director had only 6 months previous exp. as manager and the manager had only 4 months previous exp. as Test Lead. Manual Testers continue working without any direction while Automation Testers has been promising since 5-7 years to automate the unnecessary test cases in near future.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire Quality people if want to do better in Ecommerce.
