No opinion of CEO

Pros

Very fair to management team.
Expectations are well defined.
Compensation packages are at current market value.
Compensation packages evaluated periodically and adjusted as needed.

Cons

Decisions from executive management come slowly.
Sometimes too much of a machine, and could get trampled if you don't keep up with changes.
Must be able to be dynamic, most people don't like change, but need to be aware company is always changing, so if you dont like change, keep away.

Advice to Management

Bring back Bob Nardelli! He needed to do what needed to be done. He was decisive in decision making and not affraid to make a bold move.

    Pros

    Home Depot is a great place to learn. If you seek the opportunity, you will learn how to get things done in a large corporate environment and have exposure to all areas and operations of the company. You also will have opportunities to learn how to run a business and manage P&L as well as learn about consumer behavior. This is available to those who seek it at all levels of the company.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, learning and growing does not translate into promotion or career opportunity. Home Depot is still very much the "old boys network" that it used to be. It's all about who you know. Some call that networking, and to some extent it is, however I have seen many very talented, qualified and deserving people passed over for a friend of a friend with no experience. I've even been overridden in hiring decisions based on a friend/relative of a superior. There are still very few women in senior level positions and you can feel that vibe in the company. Home Depot wants to pride itself in being strategic, but are really just reactive to yesterday's numbers.

    Advice to Management

    Value your people and follow the values wheel. Provide true career development and opportunity for advancement. Provide work-life balance. Trust your people - you hired them to do a job, now trust them to do it.

    Value your customers. Slashing prices does no good if there are no good people in your stores or you have already alienated your customers. Provide true value in your products and services.

    Pros

    Great benefits, great pay, good career-advancement opportunities, profit-sharing, great environment, flexibility, great work ethics and values, great diversity, tuition reimbursement...

    Cons

    The management could be improved. There are waste issues, it is a male-dominated company, there is lack of an employee discount, environmental concerns, long hours...

    Advice to Management

    Keep your management around a bit longer, there is too high of a turnover rate. Groom and nuture them so that they may grow in their positions.
