    Pros

    There is an open-door policy which allows you to better communicate with leadership. Also, while there is plenty of work to be done, the atmosphere is unlike anywhere else I've been. That is, pretty much everyone is kind, fun, and knowledgable. Lastly, if you put in the work, you will be nicely compensated.

    Cons

    At various times throughout the year, the workload may feel overwhelming to some. Other than that, I don't have any complaints.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work! It's refreshing to know that there are leaders out there that care about those who grind it out every day and are rewarded for doing so.

    Pros

    Decent Compensation, good benefits, good hours. Decent work environment.

    Cons

    Poor, poor, poor training. Poor training of protocols and proprietary software that could lead potentially lead to major errors by employees. Word of warning to those looking to join the HDSupply Power Solutions division; it has been sold to Anixter and will have changed hands in October. I would recommend that you investigate Anixter on Glassdoor and elsewhere to before applying.

    Advice to Management

    A more congealed training regimen is VITAL for success of your employees.

    Pros

    The pay and benefits are great. There is access to some pretty good discounts for things like travel and other things. The supervisors are understanding and work with you. The environment is relaxed and enjoyable.

    Cons

    This is definitely a man's world. If you are a woman and expect to move into management, don't expect to get there without a fight. Prepare to be passed up by men with much less experience and who are not the best fit for the job.

    Pros

    There opportunity to make an impact. The company was assembled through many small acquisitions. as a result realizing the benefits of scale is a challenge.

    Cons

    business unit senior managment quietly buck efforts to leverage company scale. Business unit leadership leverages customer relationships to remain decentralized, and secure. This is not necessarily bad makes working in centralized roles a challenge.

    Advice to Management

    push initiates through, or leave things alone. 1/2 measures can do more harm than good

    Pros

    The management for some of the departments are very approachable and the dress code is very relaxed. Its a comfortable work environment for those who do not want to make themselves visibly presentable.

    Cons

    The jobs are incredibly monotonous and repetitive. Also you have almost no flexibility when it comes to your schedule during the day. And all of your superiors will micro manage you a ridiculous amount.
