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

Pros

There benefits (health, 401K, etc) are good.
Strong customer focus in the stores which shows in their success

Cons

IT salary is below industry standards
Matrix organization with poor charge back model
Little to no planning for year on year or future roadmap. Very reactive in nature.
Communication between individual contributors and executive management is filtered and blocked by 1st and 2nd level management.

Advice to Management

Move away from Matrix model to improve internal customer relationship and speed up time to delivery. Remove perception that IT is a bottleneck by decreasing walls between sister IT groups.

    I have been working at The Home Depot full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Benefits for Full-Time employees, awards based on sales and recognition program, ability to move up if you know the right people, Company culture is easy to understand and drive, when culture is followed a great environment and team to be a part of.

    Cons

    Merchandising is Reports driven, limited growth potential in Western US due to "friend" promotions, very high turnover rate, limited training, multiple instances of outside hires instead of promotions for driven and successful employees, "old school" business mentality of Middle Management, Difficult to hold employees accountable.

    Advice to Management

    The company's goals and values are fantastic, but those values need to be driven and shown by the Salaried Management teams in the field.
