    I worked at Best Buy as a contractor (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Always changing, dynamic teams, company has a "young spirit" even though they are a corporate giant.

    Cons

    There are a lot of hours put in to planning and talking about planning. Meetings are plentiful. The Holiday seasons are always tough because you have to remember you are working for a retail giant and they have to be at 100% from a few weeks before Thanksgiving until the New Year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The move from external vendors to an in-sourcing model should extend to all areas.

    Pros

    The corporate attitude towards workers is good. They respect and appreciate their people.

    Cons

    The pressure and goals applied to managers make them give sometimes unreachable goals to their staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat employees right, with enough people to man the floor, and they will treat customers right. People don't buy on price alone, or they would be at Walmart. Let your people give service.

    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
