I have been working at Best Buy full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Opportunity to be me, and teach others. This company knows how to educate on real life business acumen.

Cons

Sometimes the politics play a role, but where does that not happen

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Bring back the openness of a company of entrepreneurship, we should not be number 2 in anything.

    I have been working at Best Buy part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The people
    Discount and yes even the Customers are Awesome!

    Overall an awesome place to work, yes I Know every Best Buy is different but. At my store we really do have Fun while being the BEST!

    Cons

    Way too much Favoritism, Really that's all I got.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen I know Managers Train their employees but the EMPLOYEES ARE THE BACKBONE OF THE COMPANY!!!!!! tell me how this makes sense. Your store wins the Achievers Contest but yet only the supervisors and MAnagers get to go on a trip? That makes no sense whatsoever. I know every Employee now gets a bonus depending on how their dept does each month but. Those big Fat Bonuses that managers get ARE FROM THE EMPLOYEES!! Your store hits Budget, IT'S BECAUSE THE EMPLOYEES!!! To be fair though If I ever become a Sup or Manager then I'll get to go too. I guess what I"m trying to say is. "Free Lunches" can only go so far. If you make the Rewards A Little bit Sweeter for Employees who truly are the backbone for the company then. Maybe so many wouldn't be leaving.
