I have been working at The Home Depot full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

No need to think, follow the script and you will do fine. Yearly pay increase. Almost no training to endure

Cons

Entrepreneurship is discouraged. Thinking outside the box is discouraged. Taking ownership of your job is discouraged. You are constantly monitored. Do as you are told, no more, no less.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You can't squeeze world class customer service out of mindless morons.

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

    Pros

    Full time work with good financial benefits for IT professionals. Current management is an improvement over the Nardelli disaster.

    Cons

    There are no permanent jobs here and most of the stock option pay disappears when you get laid off. Be prepared for random acts of management by a culture focused on the next quarterly earnings report.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pursuit of the cheapest way to get work done at all levels will come back to haunt you in this life or the next one.
