    I worked at Best Buy part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good people at the store level, mostly overqualified undergrads working part-time. The culture at the beginning seemed very positive, but this was only a facade designed by whichever consulting firm was hired to make the likable propaganda.

    Cons

    I'll give just one example that encompasses the way BBY handles its operations: When the POS terminals needed a RAM upgrade, they hired an outside IT contractor to come in and install the RAM on our PCs while the Geek Squad associates stood there with their hands in their pockets. The store has RAM in stock! THE STORE EVEN HAS A TEAM THAT IS PAID TO INSTALL RAM on customers' PCs! WHY HIRE AN OUTSIDE FIRM TO DO IT??? Then we hear that hours are getting cut because revenue is low. Needless to say, this upgrade came years late anyway. Don't go work with this sinking ship.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sell your shares while they're still worth something.

    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!
