    Pros

    Big corporate company so lots of opportunity to grow.
    Their new parental leave benefit (6 weeks paid in full) provide employees more time being home and bond with your new born. Being a mom you are now entitled 3 months paid in full to stay home with your child.

    Cons

    The pay is not as competitive as similar position in the market

    I have been working at The Home Depot full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good work life balance for majority of the time

    Cons

    Leadership is awful and the fault always comes down to the people on the bottom of the totem pole. There's a culture of favoritism in place and unfortunately if you're not in with the right people, you're either forced out or life becomes so miserable that you'd rather quit without a job than to continue working. Everyone is definitely not held to the same standards. The bad reputation rumors about the company in the market are definitely true.
