    I worked at Lowe's full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The company atmosphere is very amiable. I found it easy to reach out to people I didn't know, even those way above my pay grade, and receive a positive/helpful response.

    Cons

    Due to the size of the company and the highly vertical organizational structure, processes tend to move quite slowly. As a result, projects can drag out - sometimes the results of the project can come in too late to take any reasonable action. There also tends to be "restructuring" about yearly.

    Pros

    Beautiful campus with a huge pond and track, awesome cafeteria with plenty of food. Looks good on your resume for future jobs.

    Cons

    Long Hours at corporate office. Most people come in at eight at leave after five. Not any opportunities to work from home. Anyone working in IT is hired as a contractor which you must remain as for a year, and you're not guaranteed a full time position afterwards. Managers can be unforgiving if mistakes are made. Of course, there are favorites among employees, and they're given more opportunities than others. Different teams do different things, working under the personalization team is a drag. 80% of time was spent looking over excel spread sheets or being on the Lowe's.com website and dictating what products would be good recommendations (i.e. recommending work gloves for all tool products) Managers can be immature when they don't get there way. Often times my manager would simply have contractors do his work for him, when the business intelligence team moved to a separate floor he pouted for weeks because he couldn't get them to do tasks for him.

    Advice to Management

    Create more entry level jobs for menial tasks that anyone could do, and have more oversight for managers. While higher ups freely come and go as they want, they expect contractors to never miss a day, as no days off are given your first year.

    I worked at Lowe's full-time

    Pros

    Great compensation and health benefits. Employees can enjoy a 10% discount. You can wear jeans everyday.

    Cons

    For some reason, this company conducts major layoffs on an annual basis. Don't get me wrong, the company makes money and the stocks are great. It's just someone up top is only fiscally responsible to the stockholders and not the people who make it happen everyday. Applicant beware.

    I have been working at Lowe's full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great co-workers, good pay and benefits, beautiful corporate campus, family-friendly, casual dress code,

    Cons

    Lay-offs, frequent restructuring, lack of employee morale

    Advice to Management

    Do more to keep your top talent, stop moving most of the IT jobs to India, quit with the restructuring, work to develop US based job security so US based talent can work each week without the stress of worrying about being laid-off, stop trying to BE "Home Depot"...just BE "Lowe's" because Lowe's was great.

    Process driven and employee centric

    Cons

    Too much uncertainly and change

    Advice to Management

    Think through what the company needs and where you want to take the company and stick to a plan. Changing strategy every few years affects employee morale badly

    Pros

    Beautiful campus at CSC Mooresville, 10% employee discounts, low cost of living in the local area

    Cons

    Finance area is a disaster. No leadership and even fewer career opportunities. They consider "lateral moves" as promotions (without the pay of course). Very clique Managers and Directors who promote friends over the best talent. Turnover is in the 30% - 40% range. Benefits are very poor in comparison.

    Advice to Management

    Finance should have a line waiting to get in - not to get out. There is a reason you have massive turnover and it falls solely on leaderships shoulders. Stop chasing talent off - develop them or ask yourself "why did we hire them in the first place?"
