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 3 years)

    Pros

    Relax environment, opportunity to rise up and partial college reimbursement, valuable and training.

    Cons

    dismissal and firing is rampant, wages too low compared to workload, favoritism in promotion, double standard managements and mistreatment of associates. Simply you cannot build a career at home depot. every day you are in a state of fire that you can be fired at the slightest mistake you commit. it seems they do not value the investment they make in training associates.

    Advice to Management

    Management should limit the way associates are fired. Home Depot will be a better place to work if management can listen to associates and pay at least 13 an hour to associates. a raise of 6 cent and 15 cents a year is an insult to associates. Home Depot makes a lot and can pay better than the 13 mentioned.
