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

Pros

Flexible work environment
Plenty of opportunity to move up and around
Great work relationships
Cross-functional and high-visibility projects are abound

Cons

Salary leaves a little to be desired
Leadership has dropped the ball on the company's direction

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Move faster and listen to employees below the VP and Director levels. Most companies are started by a young entrepreneur with great ideas, and then are run by "experienced" management who kill the companies because they believe they have the right answers. Keep your finger on the pulse and CHANGE with the times!

    Overall, my experience at Best Buy was positive because of my coworkers and I was selling tech that I was interested in.

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

    Pros

    I loved working at Best Buy. My co-workers were fun, people were promoted regularly, and we were provided t-shirts and sweaters to wear in the winter. There was an ample amount of training, I never felt lost or confused.

    Cons

    The customers can be awful, especially if you are going into customer service. We were told we had to meet credit card application requirements - e.g. we were supposed to get 1 a day. This put a lot of unneeded stress on me and my coworkers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My department was undergoing a change in team leaders, it was hectic and disorganized. I would say to make sure there is a specific manager someone on a team can go to if they have issues.
