    I worked at Best Buy full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    great people to work with and great discounts for stuff sold exclusively by Best Buy. Many opportunities to move up with pay raises! I moved from computer sales to Geek Squad with in a few months!

    Cons

    it's retail! lol. customers can be a pain and you will probably work black Friday! some of the managers can be micro managerial but what retail company isn't like that!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    back up your employees! if they're not supposed to mark something down or give a refund don't just come over and do it anyway to shut the customer up!

    I have been working at Best Buy as a contractor (less than a year)

    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.
