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

    Pros

    Lowe's is a very customer focused company with great values that include taking care of employees and community service. I have worked for Lowe's for 21 years and seen this first hand from several different locations. The management team is excellent and works hard to make sure the company is moving in the right direction. Even when times are tough and hard decisions have to be made, they try to stay focused on what is best for the company overall. I trust the management of this company!

    Cons

    Behind technologically in systems integrations between stores and supply chain, but they are working on a plan to correct this in the next year.

    Advice to Management

    Bite the bullet and get your systems upgraded and integrated smoother product delivery.
