    I worked at The Home Depot for more than a year

    Pros

    You work on projects that can make an impact on the company. Enjoyable environment and taking a break to play ping pong is always nice. You get experience working with team members who work at a different location or work remotely. They really stress a good work life balance and are very flexible if you have an appointment or just want to take a day off to go to a concert. It's all up to you.

    Cons

    About 10 "leadership" video conferences throughout the summer where all the Austin interns sit and watch someone in Atlanta, Georgia who is higher up the chain talk about their life experiences. Some were interesting, some were boring.

    Advice to Management

    I found that I became more productive once we had a team meeting and I got to know their specializations and how they fit into the team. When I had a question, now I knew who was more likely to know the answer or be able to help. This sped up every step of the process.

    Advice to Management

    Management still see you like sheep. after a knee surgery got no call back, they told me to my Face it would hurt them business wise and I would not be able to keep my job and return afterwards. Understandable I suppose.

    I worked at The Home Depot full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    - Learned a ton about cloud services straight out of college - Was able to get tons of traction on my side automation projects - Diversity, THD IT department is actually fantastic about hiring women and giving them a chance to excel. - Directors have pretty solid roadmaps

    Cons

    - Managers are very hit or miss - Culture is weird and kind of forced. Also expensive - Talent pool is very polar. A handful of 5 stars, a lot of 1 stars.

    Advice to Management

    Your college hires are usually fantastic. It's probably worth trying to keep some of them even if you have to give them a raise.

    I have been working at The Home Depot

    Pros

    People are very friendly, caring, helpful. If you're searching for job security, this is the a good place to go. Everything regarding Hardware and Software you could wish for is available!

    Cons

    It's everything but a startup. If you want something dynamic and fast paced, you're wrong here. The office in Austin feels like a factory and fixed work hours in IT are just ridiculous.

    Advice to Management

    There are way too little managers. Hire some people leads and strive for a modern work environment.
