It is a good company, with fantastic values. And you will learn a lot and be pushed (in a good way to develop). They incent leadership to develop and promote their people. Compensation (especially promotional compensation once you are in the company) is highly constricted with red tape. So push hard for what you think you deserve before you walk in the door. They WILL pay it, but you won't get much once you are an orange apron.

    Flexibility was all about where you were and what you could negotiate for yourself. I was lucky that I was in a highly vital, critical leadership position. Because I had proved my value I essentially came in when I wanted and left when I wanted. I believe firmly in a 40 hour week unless there is an emergency, so I was able to also offer this to my direct and indirect reports.

    Inequality is a part of the culture, and while it's changing, it's a slow change. Women are in prominent leadership positions, and are typically respected, however there are enough good 'ol boys to constantly question yourself. I would say the company is more age-gender in-equal than gender specifically. There are a good number of late 40s to early 60s men that display hostility to young, assertive women. That being said, it's a great experience to understand better how to navigate this fact of life.

I worked a manual labor job, for which women aren't normally hired for but Home Depot hired me and, even though I heard a lot from customers about my gender my coworkers were always incredibly supportive and even told off a customer or two when it got ridiculous. Great company to work for.

Great values as company. Flexibility, support, etc. completely depends on your leadership. My leadership is very supportive and flexible.

Be prepared to be second guessed on your knowledge and capabilitie to keep up with the men. Don't be afraid to ask for help but don't let them push you around. Management is all male. There will be plenty of sexist jokes.

    If you work days there are plenty of women but night I'm the only girl. Your constantly reminded your a girl and that you aren't as strong as men.

Customers will doubt your knowledge and older male associates will assume your incompetence. If you keep your nose to the grind you can make full time pretty easily but don't expect any kind of praise or recognition for doing so.

It's easy to move up on the company. And I noticed a lot of female lead positions.

Like anywhere else in tech, you have to work extra hard to be taken seriously and withstand a lot of politically incorrect jokes.
