No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

Very good benefits and 401K match. They are the 34th largest companies in the US and not going anywhere.

Cons

Sales Manager is in direct control of your income. They do not pay for gas expenses or anything else for that matter. Long work days.

Advice to Management

Integrate a routing software into sales program to keep sales reps from driving long distances. Make sure your sales managers have ethics and morals. Make sure leads are distributed fairly and there is no favoritism.Stop using gimmicks on customers to make sales (coupons, ICOs, etc.)

    I have been working at The Home Depot full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Strong compensation, opportunity to create wealth with stock purchase program and restricted stock grants. Opportunity for promotions when roles are met with clear success metrics. Projects can quick get visibility, which drives performance metrics more than individual contributions on daily basis.

    Cons

    Sometimes stressful environment, with a very quick turnaround expected on many deliveries.

    Advice to Management

    Sometimes it is ok not to rush requests/demands, in an effort to get as correct as possible.
