    A company that looks good on the outside but is hollow on the inside (bureaucratic business).

    Pros

    The Home Depot has a very competitive pay and compensation package. The company does a good job of reaching out to the community and being a part of that community. The core of the company is made up of a group of people that truly care and work hard.

    Cons

    The company is to focused on looking good and being perceived well; which in return makes them come off as half hearted and insincere. The company also lacks the ability to find the strengths of individuals and to incorporate those skills and talents to better the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The upper management is out of touch with the common person (reality of the working person). The company at this time is looking for a single style of manager/leader (yes leaders) and one must march, do, act, and speak as directed. Filling one side of the boat will slow if down and in the longrun sink your ship.

    Pros

    Home depot is extremely flexible with time and with what you want to do with your life. they are happy with you wanting to stay where you are or they will help you progress. They are fine with you working 4 hours a week and they are fine with you changing your schedule every week, granted it has to be in three weeks advance.

    Cons

    There are a few things that are really bad, one the benefits are outrageously dumb, they cost 4000 dollars a year for health insurance and the insurance has a maximum payout of 10000 dollars. also if you sign up they will not let you cancel it, the only way to stop is to quit or get fired. they also advertise tuition reimbursement which is a joke at best, in order to qualify you have to work full time and have only one restrictions, which means that you can only ask off one day a week, with that kind of schedule it would take you like 7 years to graduate because there are very few classes that are only taken once a week. But the worst thing I think is that the schedule is completely sparatic, one day you will be working morning and the next day, you can never plan around the schedule without requesting off, which if you have to do it often makes you look bad. raises are pathetic, they dont even compensate for inflation, which essentially means that every year you work there you are paid less than the year you started.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    reward certain employees more, I asked for a raise and was told no not because I didn't deserve it, which I strongly did and everyone agreed, including the managers. But I didn't get it because there were employees who worked there longer than me that didn't make that much, even though they had much less experience than me. I am a lisenced plumber and make less than other employees even though everyone comes to me with questions, even the DH.
