    Pros

    Once you're full time you can get a lot more health benefits.
    The company culture in the Digital side is very open and makes you feel welcome.
    Collaborating with different teams is encouraged and it helps with the overall goal plus helps you feel relevant.
    Company events are always fun and very inspiring - mostly when higher ups are speaking

    Cons

    HR is your direct boss so everything has to be approved by either them or their boss which can be a lot of back and forth when trying to get a tuition reimbursement or just basic information about your benefits or eligibility to things like leave of absence for school.

    Some of the management seem to enjoy saying 'no' or are too scared to ask when they have an employee who is empowered to do something a little different

    Lots of Hierarchy and micromanagement

    Advice to Management

    Trust your talented and loyal employees

    I have been working at Lowe's full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    There are some good people to work with and work life balance is great

    Cons

    Good people don't stay, Lowe's hires smart people and then fire them when they promote change. Benefits are bad, Corp employees get 2 holidays and 4 floating a year.

    I have been working at Lowe's as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    - The chance for vertical and horizontal mobility makes it a rather attractive company to work for.
     - The overall culture was very supportive and you had many chances to branch out and meet others in different departments.
     - Food options are to die for and relatively inexpensive. DOes't hurt the pocket when you forget your lunch.
     - Teams are supportive and are actively trying to make things happen outside of Corporate. There is definitely a large sense of Lowe's identity which makes you feel like you belong.

    Cons

    - The C-Suite cares a lot about the Corporate Perks but not a lot about store & DC/RDC centers. Expecting them to accomplish more work with less, putting employees in exponentially more at-risk circumstances.
     - The future of Home Improvement isn't Amazon, but Lowe's seems like they prefer to stay in their lane as #2, even with the solutions brewing in the Innovation Labs.

    Advice to Management

    There needs to be a level of innovation that attacks the out-dated modeling of the current store layout, reducing touch-points, increasing customer knowledge, and accurately and efficiently preparing the employee to be effective in whichever role.

    The technology and opportunity exists today. The question is, is Lowe's willing to trial a full store demo in a growing market, to test out new opportunities. They are continually coming out with products or services, but to build a living lab store to be the birthplace and life of innovation; that should be the goal.

    I worked at Lowe's full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    When I worked there the ability to work remotely and flexible work schedule was nice. The building was nice and decent benefits.

    Cons

    When I was there it was too much change in upper management. I had 6 managers in the span of 12 years.

    Advice to Management

    Be consistent and transparent with the employees.
