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

    Pros

    Very interactive, fast pace and supportive team. The Flexible schedule is a plus. Inspections of many types of architecture while enjoying the views of the countryside was delightful to me.

    Cons

    Being in the field there is a certain amount of loneliness. Depending what state you live in you may not see a person all week.

    Advice to Management

    I believe that having more gatherings of all the field project managers and inspectors would be a welcomed addition.

    Pros

    Pros to working at HD.com: great benefits (401K matching, relaxed work wear environment, health/dental, savings plans) and great place to learn the inter workings of a successful retail business. Good work life balance within the PMO.

    Cons

    Cons: relationships are key here. You must establish key relationships early to ensure you can maneuver to different positions in the future if that interests you.

    Pros

    In IT the technology is top notch and they are not afraid of pushing the capabilities of technology to the benefit of the people in gaining knowledge and the benefit of the organization. Team environment where the exchange of ideas is not frowned upon and knowledge is not silo'd but shared. The best of the best as it pertains to the quality of people working at the depot.

    Company has many opportunities to work across the organization and move around in the organization.

    Cons

    Sometimes the pursuit of goals has an effect on the quantity and make-up of the people working. Though a company must adjust to strategy and market conditions, this at times shrinks the workforce. At times the company moves slower than desired in addressing unproductive behavior from people.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to deleterious behaviour within the organizations and make adjustments sooner than later before team morale and performance is impacted.

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

    Pros

    Good work environment, The celebrate success OFTEN. Events on the lawn almost everyday, supportive. Not the sweat shop other describe from previous years. (They did a house cleaning in 2017).

    Cons

    Some are in position that are over there head, some don't understand why they don't get promoted. After being at other Major companies, this place is really laid back. I expect to be a Rock Star here but have to have the right people in your corner. I plan to retire from here if possible. (twice a year bonus, stock options, good pricing on Health Care)

    Advice to Management

    The team I am on had problems with employee before I came but so the Manager does not celebrate success like most in the company. Other team members have giving me Homer Awards because the manager wont. (kinda crazy).

    Pros

    Very nice campus and facility. Organizational pride was nice to see. Project process easy to follow.

    Cons

    Poor leadership and employee morale. The culture is depressing in some areas not all.

    Advice to Management

    Lead by encouragement not by fear. Listen to employees and contractors to find ways to boost morale. Have anonymous surveys where staff rates managers and directors to uncover leadership issues and gaps
