    I worked at Best Buy part-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    At the time I worked at Best Buy it seemed like there was plenty of upward mobility if you were willing to put in the time. Everyone I worked with was very close-knit and it was a great store at the time.

    Cons

    Unfortunately by the time I was let go as a seasonal employee due to school, the company was changing. It was becoming highly revenue driven and didn't feel the same as it did when I first started.

    I have been working at Best Buy full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Amazing discount on all product categories, depending on the store training can be amazing for employees, family type atmosphere within your specific discipline (department to department ok)

    Cons

    Some projected budgets can be astronomical and unattainable

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not lower expectations on projected revenue or growth but be more realistic when setting the goals in the first place, can be discouraging to employees when some stores never hit their target.
