    Pros

    The Waterworks St. Louis corporate office is a great place to work. The people and the culture are both great. The Senior Leadership team is made up of great leaders who care about the people. There is a lot of focus on learning and development.

    Cons

    I can't think of any negatives or reasons not to work here. Great people. Great development. Great opportunity. Great place to work.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

    Pros

    The people are amazing. Down to earth, kind and nearly everyone is good at what they do / works hard. A fast-moving, engaging environment that provides both challenges to navigate and opportunities to make a difference. An over-achiever's dream

    Cons

    Definitely some challenges and complexities to doing your job due to the fact that HD Supply is a company built on acquisitions with a dispersed workforce. But that at least means you are never bored!

    Advice to Management

    Be open to doing things differently. Cross-functional, cross-BU collaboration is key

    I worked at HD Supply full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    the people (in SD at least)

    Cons

    In November 2015, the Marketing team was told that we would not be relocated.
    In December 2015-January 2016, about a dozen new marketing employees were brought onboard.
    January 12, 2016- everyone was laid off, with the option to move from SD to Atlanta if we reapplied to our jobs and took pay cuts. Hmm, decisions, decisions.
    January 12-June 3, 2016 (last day at HD), no acknowledgement of company relocation and mass layoffs except for a small unnoticeable memo.
    The way they handled layoffs was horrible, degrading, and disrespectful to the hundreds of loyal employees who dedicated their hard work to the company for 20+ years. Really shows what kind of company it is.

    Advice to Management

    Grow hearts. In the end, your actions will affect your business in the same way you treated your SD employees.

    I worked at HD Supply full-time

    Pros

    A few of my co-workers were very good, however, there was minimal recognition of great work from management.

    Cons

    - Associates are penalized for thinking outside of the box.
    - The company has a very archaic way of thinking which explains the lack of
       innovation and competitors taking over.
    - HR cannot be trusted under any circumstances
    - No room for growth
    - Many have a constant fear of getting fired
    - Continuous turnover; associates leaving and/or getting fired

    If you are looking for a meaningful and challenging career where you can directly have impact, keep on looking...

    Pros

    None, this used to be a very solid company. Once we went public we changed what made us great.

    Cons

    No leadership. No manager since beginning of year other managers leaving. Outsiders come to help, but it isn't working. You will work long hours and not be thanked. Everyone is leaving, warehouse is s mess, attitudes are bad, too many clicks. This place is becoming a laughing stock to everyone.

    Advice to Management

    Get on the floor and work with your people. Stop trying to run Dallas from an ivory tower. We are real people trying to do our best. You guys are leading us in the wrong direction. Let's put the customers and associates first. Open your eyes and figure this out.
