    I have been working at The Home Depot full-time

    Pros

    Good Pay. Good benefits. Learning Growth is exponential.

    Cons

    Don't expect to further your career. Everyone above you has one main objective: prove their worth. They do this by trying and searching on where there might be a problem and then meddling with a good system to 'make it better' by making everyone miserable . If you like negative reinforcement, a glass ceiling, and others taking credit for your work, this is the place for you.

    Advice to Management

    Trust the people you hire to do their job. Don't rely on heresay from people above them looking for pet projects. Stop labling people as difficult to work with when you've asked them for honest feedback. Have your reports' backs rather than the other Managers' backs. Stop the favoritism. Be honest. Saying you're transparent doesn't mean you are transparent.
