    I worked at The Home Depot as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - The culture is amazing. Interns are made to feel so special
    - Some departments are doing crazy AI stuff and if you're lucky enough to be on those teams, you'll do groundbreaking work
    - Most dev teams are switching to future-proof tech-stacks
    - Housing was provided for free
    - Management really values your contribution and shows it
    - As an intern, you'll work on projects that have real value
    - Birthdays always result in free cake, almost every day

    Cons

    - Intern compensation is very low
    - Pair programming is a slightly outdated concept and can be wasteful
    - At times the pressure, though well-intentioned, can be crippling

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

    Pros

    Strong company financially, excellent store culture. They do very well to map your career and hire from within. Your ambition and ability to relocate are the only things to limit your career growth.

    Cons

    Benefits and my pay rate are barely competitive. I can't afford health insurance, even as a full-time supervisor (department head). I earn only $14 /hour. For a company that brags about taking care of its people, this is one glaring contradiction.

    Advice to Management

    My team nor myself are able to afford insurance. If only 1 in 10 employees can afford medical insurance, how does that align with Taking Care of Our People, or Doing What is Right, or Entrepreneurial Spirit? We unanimously agree that we would rather have no Perks at Work, WOW points, Solutions for Life, etc.., if it meant we could have affordable health insurance. This is a big miss for such a large company. Your buying power and profits should allow for some decent insurance deals.
