    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

    Pros

    The culture is fantastic. There's definitely a sense of family within the corporate office and the field. We're all focused on supporting the stores and our customers to the best of our abilities.

    Cons

    The politics - you have to be careful who you assimilate with and watch your back. Also, compared to other companies, pay and benefits are not as competitive as you might think.

    Advice to Management

    While The Home Depot is a great company to work for, try making strides in improving the political environment and overall compensation structure.

    Great company with many benefits and perks! They try to do a lot for their employees by making it as enjoyable as possible.

    Your life will be hell if you end up working for the wrong managers. The company is still old school in many ways, however many areas are definitely changing to be a more fun environment. It just depends what area of the company you are in.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize the impact you have on your employees

    Pros

    Pay is comparable to what you would find in other Marketing contract positions.

    Cons

    The culture at THD is not conducive to work-life balance. There is little to no direction, not set processes in place and no training available. Leadership is very disengaged with those executing the work.

    Advice to Management

    Take more time to have a clear understanding of the various processes (or lack there of) in place before insisting on certain executions.
