    I have been working at The Home Depot

    Pros

    Home Depot is a great place to work. Been with the company seven years and have been exposed to a number of internal groups. Definitely a fast paced workplace but has a very good almost family like culture

    Cons

    While Home Depot is a great place to work it sometimes feels like a 'chop shop' for software coding as there is typically more projects than can be completed within a year, yet somehow all of those projects get completed.
