    Pros

    The Home Depot has a solid moral compass. They aren't about sacrificing their ethics for the sake of a sale, which I love. They also hire a diverse group of people and give a lot back to the community. They offer a lot of benefits and little treats for their employees. Although they push their associates to meet quota, they're realistic about what can and can't be accomplished.

    Cons

    Home Depot has two different sides to it. Store associates and those of us considered "store support" who are payed by the vendors but work in the stores 100% of the time. I constantly hear about how store associates are stressed out by management and their hours are being rearranged a lot, cut, and they often are stretched thin due to lack of full staffing. "Store support" associates who do merchandising have it better than those who work in specific departments. However, you never really gain knowledge unless you have the time to look things up and read packaging.

    Good place to work but prepare to work like a dog

    Pros

    - teamwork isn't just a buzzword here - most IT workers have freedom to work remotely from almost anywhere in US - decent profit sharing and stock grants for senior individual contributor roles - very diverse workforce, and they're not bothered if you're over 40 unlike many technology firms (yes, with thousands of developers Home Depot *is* a technology firm as well as one of the world's largest retailers) - management usually walks the talk

    Cons

    - it's retail, so expect to work hard so customers can get what they need now - pretty pitiful PTO, 2 weeks until 5 years, don't get a 4th until 15, only six paid holidays annually (see: it's retail) - health benefits are pricey and not terribly comprehensive - over-reliance on contractors and pricey talent from other firms (Ernst and Young is everywhere in the Security organization) and stubborn refusal to staff support roles - you'll always have more work than you can complete
