I have been working at The Home Depot

Pros

The provide growth of knowledge. I came into the company with no experience and because of their programs and support I was able not only learn new processes, I was able to excel in my position and was promoted within a year.

Cons

The company is forever changing, and creating new ways to handle issues, therefore the business structure changes quite often and while they try to minimize impact, many people still end up losing their job if the company does not see a "good fit" for you in the new positions.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Setting the example is very key, you cannot expect someone else to do it if you cannot. Also, defending your staff in conflicts with a better understanding of the processes/day to day stuff.

    Pros

    Great team work is a must to work here. Business partners must work hand in hand to achieve goals. Many times your goals are tied to financial awards at end of year.

    Cons

    Like most companies the jobs get more political the higher you move up the corporate chain. Salaried employees can be at times seen as expendable to make a point to others.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consistentcy was what the company built its strength on and people wanting to grow and be successful with the company, not the company is more of a stepping stone job instead of a destination job.
