    I worked at The Home Depot full-time for more than 19 years

    Pros

    Company culture and opportunity to grow, while the company is leading the industry. Very profitable and the success is from outages adding management by its senior leadership team. This is a merchandise focused company that will continue to deliver results and beat its competition

    Cons

    The company has developed a strong political based environment that is being driven by finance based associates that have little to no experience in a merchandising based company. Work life balance is at times a problem as resources are never evenly distributed to get the job done and the level of accountability varies across many departments and work groups

    I have been working at The Home Depot full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Generally offer great pay and total compensation package There is plenty of interesting work as the company continues to evolve There are a lot of good people here They are in the process of changing their approach to how things get done. Starbucks on site in the SSC

    Cons

    The health benefits package sucks It is a very cutthroat and competitive environment Some management does not live by the company's core values. The company survives on PowerPoint

    Advice to Management

    Make sure that all levels of management in the SSC adhere to the core values. The IT department has some serious issues in the VP ranks as do some other areas. Many VP level people are hostile in their interactions with others

    I have been working at The Home Depot full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    There's a real concentration on taking care of people embedded into the culture of Home Depot.

    Cons

    Like many large companies, groups can get silo'ed and sometimes it's hard to get things done.

    Advice to Management

    For headquarters: be more open to newer ways of working (remote employees, flex time, workshare).

    I have been working at The Home Depot full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Terrific Company to work for. Benefits are better than any other Company. If you work hard advancement is easily obtained.

    Cons

    Promotions are very politically driven, all about who you know. If you are politically savvy you will be extremely successful, if you are not you will struggle.

    Advice to Management

    Keep rewarding associates for their performance based on metrics and leadership. Never change the bonus or success sharing structure, it allows you to stand apart from other Company's.

    I worked at The Home Depot full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Good salary Great Brand Cutting edge technology, large scale, excellent business direction. CIO strong technology and strong retail. Excellent talent level - I worked with some of the best in the industry. CEO when I left was Frank Blake, CIO was Matt Carey

    Cons

    Impossible work life balance; you're paid well and they get every penny out of you. Think "Corporate Forced Selection". Work them till they drop, we can always hire more. VP's stay out of touch so they have time to fawn over CIO. CIO has one style of leadership, fear and intimidation.

    Advice to Management

    You will have to change culture or leave Atlanta, everyone in North GA knows THD is a sweat shop.
