Never in my life have I ever seen a company with so many ups and downs as Home Depot. Some of the greatest management I've ever worked with has been with this company, and also some of the worst. It's a non-stop revolving door of management at the store, district, and corporate levels. Associates get pulled in all directions. Especially when you move up into a management position the responsibilities and pressure from the job doubles, while your pay stays relatively the same. The benefits from this company are outstanding especially the higher you climb the ladder, but there is so much miscommunication here. It never felt like we could get a routine going as there were so many changes in the direction of the company way too often. I did learn the most I've ever learned about management, and it's definitely shaped me into a thicker-skinned and extroverted person.
