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

    Pros

    Talented and motivated staff to take care of the customers and proud of their store.

    Cons

    Lack of support with upper level management, no developmental opportunities, lack of creative opportunities, not all skills were utilized, decisions made without any input or discussion with associates. Lack of feedback and supportive direction, did not feel safe or secure and was a long term employee.

    Advice to Management

    Company should make sure that they mean what they say and publish, too many different directions with changes in management, should be more consistent with company vision.

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

    Pros

    Lowes offers their employees great benefits. They also offer very flexible hours and are very into hiring from within, making it fairly easy to move up the chain quickly.

    Cons

    Management leaves a lot to be desired in almost every case I have encountered. No one is being held accountable for their actions.

    Advice to Management

    Start holding people accountable so that the people who actually come to work and do their jobs aren't forced to carry the weight of everyone else.
