I have been working at The Home Depot full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Job security b/c as long as you brown nose and kiss up to your boss while passing your duties off to your subordinates you'll move up the ladder fast!

Cons

Expectations of job performance are through the roof but the resources to fulfill these expectations are in the basement. Unspoken expectation that you should work off the clock to get work done especially department heads (non salary) and made to feel inadequate if not willing to get the work done off the clock.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hold everyone accountable for doing their own job instead of constantly delegating responsibilities down to the next person. It all ends up falling on the little guys who are often over worked and under paid.
