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

    Pros

    Great overall plan and culture, upbeat and customer focused.

    Cons

    I've heard too many times, but this is the way we've always done it. Although an entrepreneurial spirit is a core value, it seems its not being adhered to.

    Advice to Management

    Delve deep into the messaging in your middle management. It doesn't seem the value wheel exists at times. Overall great words, but implementation is lacking.

    Pros

    Manager who has no clue what you’re working on.

    Cons

    Managers put employees down to elevate themselves, when their LinkedIn clearly showed little management experience. Just a bunch of old people trying to get the cushy Home Depot benefits and stability - that’s all. Their commitment to growth is doubtful. Staff sell you their little pretty ‘frameworks’ that are half useless so they could get a promotion. Merch especially, Supply chain, etc. Examples abound.

    Advice to Management

    Managers/leads who are there to prove their worth vs being there to help team grow need to go. Dysfunctional.
