    I worked at The Home Depot full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Pay, benefits, some schedule flexibility. Newer building. Free Parking. Full appreciation of where the heart of the business is --- the stores. Lots of opportunities to take on more responsibilities/work, and gain experience.

    Very male dominated staff and leadership. Difficult for corporate personnel to wait 90 days for benefits -- based on standard retail practices.

    Advice to Management

    Create opportunities for career growth for all roles and be aware of bullying environments.

    Pros

    Emerging technology
    Committed peers
    Decent pay/ benefits
    Strong company culture
    Strong brand
    Onsite gym
    Onsite pharmacy
    Onsite cleaners

    Cons

    Lack of communication
    Lack of transparency
    Lack of development
    Inability to fully adopt agile methodologies
    Lack of best practices

    When IT Store Systems group underwent an IT transformation, it was actually like IT decimation. Not only did HD cut the fat, they cut the red meat and dug into the bone. Instead of retooling employees with company and business knowledge, they eliminated them to bring in more 'product' people, while really not understanding how to effectively deliver a product.

    Advice to Management

    Before engaging new people, fully identify the direction and a path for success or turnover will be rapid.

    For anyone interested, wait until they have turned the ship before joining or else management's lack of direction will be frustrating.
