Pros

Home Depot makes sure your always knowledgeable about your department, and with that the bonus and other perks are just as great.

Cons

POWER HOUR its the worst feels like you have to nag customers to buy something when you could be restocking or keeping the shelf presentation up. But to have to walk around and bug customers who typically know what they are looking for was irritating.

Advice to Management

Continue to improve the success of the company and hiring the wonderful people and managers you do.

    Pros

    Work life balance (for the most of time)

    Cons

    Full of semi-skilled (or unskilled) contractors
    Business teams have no clarity of where are they heading - they implement and revert changes most of the time to keep themselves busy
    Engineering teams dont have process. No schema definitions, no documents, no CI, some dont follow unit testing. There is literally no design phase, discussions are frowned upon. Architects are mere losers here.
    Politics is a must to do, else you will be a sucker
    On a scale of 1-10 in technology (10 being highest), if you are consider yourself more than 3 - DO NOT JOIN. I have seen people leave in 1-5 months of joining. I am leaving in my 3rd month.

    Advice to Management

    Collaboration does not mean sitting in meetings the whole day with no planning. Please realize the importance of the word "engineering" in IT. We need to discuss, plan and then start implementing - not the other way.
    Hire atleast some good people in the engineering teams. Or respect the ones you have before they leave. Experience is not the ONLY criteria to decide who is good or not; you need to come up with some talent metrics.
    I understand revenue is growing, but that does not mean your IT teams are great.
