    I worked at The Home Depot full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great place with great people. Nothing changes, great if you want to slack.

    Cons

    Old place with old thought. Very little outside the box thinking.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Job jump as much as possible. Best way to move up corporate latter.

    I have been working at The Home Depot full-time

    Pros

    Looks very good on a resume. Product knowledge is very good. Nice employees in general. Empowered to take care of the customer.

    Cons

    Very long work hours. Favoritism runs rampant. Some assistant store managers work very hard, while the favorites sit in an office doing nothing. Women are not treated well, even though the company states otherwise. They need to look at their tenured male leaders on the asm level and higher to make sure they are competent. Many of these folks were promoted when the company grew too rapidly. Some of these warm bodies have worn out their welcome.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your female leaders with respect. This means retraining your male leaders to be more sensitive to the needs of working mothers. Be fair and consistent. Have higher expectations of your leaders. The company culture wants to be friendly, but it is not there yet. You have very overly paid associates in some departments making double newer associates that work their tails off.
