    Pros

    Wide, open space makes it easy to get along with each other. Good moral, management bunch of regulars who at first, hard to distinguish manager from associate. Customers fun and always something new to learn.

    Cons

    Hours can be very inconsistent. Scheduling too many or too little co-workers at any one time for any certain dept.

    Pros

    On paper and general policy and philosophy, Home Depot is a great company. They offer many benefits and employee driven moral boosters and employee appreciation events.

    Cons

    Does not pay enough!! Compensation does not match the particular level of job responsibilities and adds to a general disincentive to take on more responsibility.

    Advice to Management

    I would give different advice depending on which level of management the advice is intended for. But generally the most important goal should be to achieve higher fidelity with actual vs written policies, values, etc

    Pros

    This is the best company I've ever worked for! They take care of customers and their employees! I was in a District role, but when in the stores you're expected to take care of customers. I was compensated well and love the folks I worked with! Miss it!!

    Cons

    Too many reorganizations I'm AP! I lived through 7! The most recent reorg was a doozie from what I understand! A few good friends of mine have been left in a tough spot. However, i sure the Company will take care of them!

    Advice to Management

    Make sure you reward the folks that truly work hard and avoid the trap of allowing "Johnny jump ups" to take credit and self promote!

    Pros

    Great compensation, Customer Service based environment, freedom to "be the change" and make the change.

    Cons

    fast paced, changes on a dime, high expectations, type A driven atmosphere

    Advice to Management

    Do your best to squash the politics and don't perpetuate it. Out with the old and in with the new does not lead to stability. Some old is still needed.

    Pros

    Home Depot has wonderful benefits, especially in terms of stock. The stock vests every 2 or 4 years, so no one wants to leave, in order to ensure they keep their stock!

    Cons

    The company tries to do so much, so fast, and doesn't have enough Home Depot associates to do all the things they need to do, so we bring in a LOT of contractors. And, that knowledge leaves, when they do.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more good associates. Hire some as contract to hire. We've hired a few too many that really should not be full time associates.
