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

    Pros

    Work culture is good at least in Houston (Blinds.com). No Vertical growth @houston office(blinds) or relocate to Atlanta.

    Cons

    Benefits are not so great. Especially health plans and you will find way better benefits in IT body shop companies. Ridiculously expensive.

    I have been working at The Home Depot as a contractor

    Pros

    People are very friendly, caring, helpful. If you're searching for job security, this is the a good place to go.

    Everything regarding Hardware and Software you could wish for is available!

    Cons

    It's everything but a startup. If you want something dynamic and fast paced, you're wrong here.

    The office in Austin feels like a factory and fixed work hours in IT are just ridiculous.

    Advice to Management

    There are way too little managers. Hire some people leads and strive for a modern work environment.

    Pros

    Very modern tech stack which is nice for such a large company. I am on the .com team so I enjoy working in the ecommerce business. Would highly recommend.

    Cons

    There is some lack of consistency among different teams and poor communication across organizations. There is an effort to stabilize this but it is on going.

    Pros

    It is a good company to work with great work/life balance, very respectful in time, always 9 to 5 and builds a career for a lifetime in the company is possible.

    Cons

    As a software engineer is not allowed working for home, work frames such as pair programming, TDD, and agile are imposed in most of the teams in IT so no solo coding or time to learn to technologies and programming languages.
