Pros

Flexible. Smart coworkers and managers. Opportunities to grow. Ability to help the company change.

Cons

It's a large corporation, and working across teams can be a challenge (technology / geography).

Change happens slowly. BBY's biggest problem is fixing everything that's broken and improving customer experience at store and online.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Continue to work with your teams to build consistency and streamline both Process (how the projects get tackled), and Technology (the way everything talks to each other).

Try to hold people accountable for their work, and try to get meetings running more efficiently. There is often 5-10 minutes of dead time as people show up/ deal with tech issues/ introduce themselves. This adds up.

    I have been working at Best Buy part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great technology and products. Fun work environment and great co-workers (well, most of them).

    Cons

    Pay is OK, but not great. Part time hours are not consistent, and it's hard to move up to full time. Having to know so much about so many products is difficult.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let sales people specialize in one area (home theater, or appliances or games) instead of expecting them to know a lot about everything.

    Pros

    Depending on your location you will work with some GREAT people.

    Cons

    Pay is ehhh... But it is retail, so I guess its ok. You will deal with angry customers wanting grade A+ service on their computers, but they want to pay Monopoly money.....

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more friendly with your employees! And stop letting your position go to your head, and step off the high horse my friend!
