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

    Pros

    Benefits are pretty great. Open work culture. Lots of competent developers either still growing or mentoring. Plenty of hackathons and opportunities for members of different teams across the org to share knowledge. Plenty of informative sessions on campus. OrangeMethod is pretty awesome.

    Cons

    Some teams are a little resistant to work with each other. Politics can sometimes get in the way of work but it’s mostly not a problem.
    People have misgivings about pair programming and some can be sticklers about embracing pure TDD, which can sometimes stagnate progress.
    I worked with a lot of talented people but most of them were contractors and weren’t there for long before getting a new face to bring up to speed all over again. They’ve been converting more and more contractors to full time so hopefully that’ll change.

    Advice to Management

    Incentivize teams to work together. Seek mid-long term commitments with associates. Communicate the need to follow procedures but also allow some elbow room.

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

    Pros

    One of my favorite pros is that everyone I’ve met is not only great at their role, but has a passion for it.
    There is a lot of team spirit and it’s obvious most people here at Home Depot love the company.
    The turnover rate is extremely low. Most people I’ve met had been in their roles 5+ years and were still happy. The ability to transition to a different area is encouraged as is learning new skills that benefit *any* part of Home Depot. Today I could manage paid search, but if I decided I wanted to be on the store operations team I just tell my manager and we work on a plan to get me there. I think the investment in individual employees sets the threshold for others, if not unmatched.

    Cons

    The benefits are surprisingly not as generous for SSC employees as with other major corporations I’ve worked for, but I am happy that the benefits are standard across all employees, including store (part time is soon getting the same as everyone else). I’m happy to have slightly less generous policies if it means all employees can qualify!

    Advice to Management

    Couch any managers who have a higher turnover than normal for the company. People leave managers, not companies and while my manager is excellent I have heard of some that are not.

    Advice to Management

    Help your employees by providing the tools for them to do their job. No one wants to come to work and have to lie to customers and have customers yelling and cursing at you as if your the person that is incompetent and taking their money and not installing their job.

    Pros

    Pair programming so the spreading of knowledge is good
    Culture is focused on not only helping the customers but other employees as well

    Not working at the main office so miss out on some perks like having a Starbucks in the office.

    Advice to Management

    Managers need more focus and direction. Trying to take on too many initiatives at the same time.
