    I worked at The Home Depot full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    - Learned a ton about cloud services straight out of college - Was able to get tons of traction on my side automation projects - Diversity, THD IT department is actually fantastic about hiring women and giving them a chance to excel. - Directors have pretty solid roadmaps

    Cons

    - Managers are very hit or miss - Culture is weird and kind of forced. Also expensive - Talent pool is very polar. A handful of 5 stars, a lot of 1 stars.

    Advice to Management

    Your college hires are usually fantastic. It's probably worth trying to keep some of them even if you have to give them a raise.

  3. Unbelievably Good Place To Work

    I have been working at The Home Depot full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Flexible schedule Work-life balance is good

    Cons

    In 2018, Home Depot hired 1000 new software engineers. In the race against time to fill the positions, they have recruited people who are really bad at coding. The entire interview process was a joke. Managers don't really care about employees. All they want is to maintain status quo and secure their job.

    Advice to Management

    Usher in accountability in the IT department.

    I have been working at The Home Depot full-time for more 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...

    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 worked at The Home Depot for more than a year

    Pros

    Great Atmosphere, the employees really want the interns to succeed and help you grow professionally, good selection of coffee machines, and great building to work in. They offered intern events and learning sessions with heads of the companies to provide us some insights. Over all a great place to spend your summer for a software internship. -relaxed atmosphere -table tennis for breaks

    Cons

    Not a whole lot to complain about

    I have been working at The Home Depot full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    -Good people -Pairing (If it's a pro to you) -Stock purchase program

    Cons

    -Feel stuck in a team specific stack (harder to grow) -Fixed low percent (~inflation) policy for raises without a change in title -Only 2 weeks PTO officially -No work from home without specific cause for a given day -Mac for work, personal machine is windows. Inconsistence makes working on personal machine a PITA -Lack of transparency at management level

    Advice to Management

    -Provide more PTO. -Provide more opportunities to grow via experience in multiple teams or areas of the company. -Stop trying to under raise promising personnel. You lose them and then have to pay more competitive rates to pull in talent that requires training and has to develop commitment.

    Pros

    Great work life balance, with somewhat flexible hours. This is a great place to start out your career as a software engineer. The environment is conducive to learning since you pair program. The company has great benefits and takes care of their associates. The SSC (HQ) has just about everything you need onsite, the building is awesome. Food, gym, laundry, and a full fledge Starbucks inside.

    Cons

    If you don't like pair programming then this might not be the place for you.

    Advice to Management

    Keep taking care of your people. Allow them to develop and gain confidence before you move them around if they're new.
