    I worked at The Home Depot full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The job was easy managing calendars, performing daily Microsoft applications.

    Cons

    Micro manager! With no communications at all from senior team. Brought in new management and never met him after he was there for 2 months. I even sent him a welcome email and he never attended a staff meeting nor did my manager ever talk about him in the staff meeting.

    Advice to Management

    Visit your employees at least once a month to get their input and value their input instead of locking them out.
