    I have been working at The Home Depot (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    A business that is somewhat recession proof. Quick to adapt to economic changes, provides success sharing to all associates. Every store has great community involvement and assists veterans.

    Cons

    Home Depot has gotten too micro managed and has lost entrepreneurship, which has brought down morale in stores. Also lack of communication amongst upper management. Merchandising and ordering has also been taken away from Departments.

    Advice to Management

    This is directed to Human Resources. Reviews need to be reviewed as they are out of date and depending on the position, the review does not apply to that position.
