Pros

So far, Best Buy has been a good experience. Most of the sales floor associates are really good people and the hours for full time are good.

Cons

Unfortunately, this job, like most, underpay the laborers who actually do the footwork of bringing the revenue to the company. It is definitely not "what you know" but "who you know" when it come to moving up within the company.

Advice to Management

Just because you've met your numbers doesn't mean you can talk about golf all day and not do your job. Just because you have a degree does not make you more intelligent than others. Quit talking down to your employees and acting like you're better than they are.

    Pros

    The overall working environment and people are energetic and enthusiastic and the benefits are adequate. Employee purchase program is a huge benefit beyond regular perks.

    Cons

    Seems to be too much focus on street perception rather than emphasis on the employees. Too much hiring from within and ignoring outside talent, which is badly needed especially in upper management.

    Advice to Management

    Get a better understanding of what it takes REALLY takes to be a solid services organization in addition to a big box retailer.
