    I worked at The Home Depot full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Decent pay, great co-workers, great store level management.

    Cons

    Portrays a "do it yourself" persona to the public, but forces associates to push installation services on customers.

    Advice to Management

    You hire professionals, so let them do their jobs and stop micro-managing.

    I worked at The Home Depot full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I worked with some amazing employees which really made this job worthwhile. I learned a lot with regards to all things building and design. I was given a lot of room for creativity because I was lucky and had a manager who saw the big picture for money making vs. corporate dogmatism.

    Cons

    Most managers were micro-managed which left them tied up in big business bureaucracy. Raises were most often insulting because of how corporate would give each department a minimal amount of money to be divided amongst a department.

    Advice to Management

    Senior management and corporate management needs to leave a department alone when they are doing well. The longer I worked there the worse the morale became due to micro-management. I watched managers chase great employees away due to this problem.
