    Pros

    Responsive management, great environment. They take good care of the employees and they are very approachable top to bottom...every one is part of the team.

    Cons

    takes a long time to get rid of dead weight...beyond that it there is very little to say in regards to any cons. They do a great job.

    Pros

    Some of the most real, hard-working people I have ever worked with. Field sales reps are honest and have a good relationship with product teams and distribution centers

    Cons

    Very segmented company, little tie in or support from corporate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Break down the barriers between the business units, create a cohesive central brand.

    I have been working at HD Supply Utilities

    Pros

    Good salary for management, great opportunity for advancement, good senior leadership, very good training and growth opportunities, very advanced with computer system technology

    Cons

    The company is very large, as a result to multiple buy outs. Customer base is fragile in areas due to this and there can be a lot of red tape at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    HD Supply Leadership is very good. The size of the company can cause frustration when trying to quickly accomplish goals. The unknown, always changing future of HD Supply can be scary to some (ie. LOB's being sold, company being owned by a private equity group, etc)

    Pros

    Great team to work with. Reasonable overtime. Decent pay. Decent benefits. Equipment well maintained.

    Cons

    -Conflicting management visions.
    -On average 4-5 emergency tasks to complete in minutes versus proper reseach due to lack of planning on managements part
    -Challenging peaks and valleys in workload, 1 week you are a month behind, the next you are struggling to stay awake.
    -Keeps changing, processes are constantly reviewed and modified, rarely training letting the whole team know what is going on
    -Suffers from morale problems due to management flip flopping on issues

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If a team fails, remove the team from that project and start over. OUr branch was started by a bad management team now the team changed but a few key players stayed in place. These changes hae made things worse, however without the employees between themselves saying it has to get better this job would be unbearable.

    Pay and advancement is good if you really want to work.
