I have been working at Best Buy full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Lots of Room to move up, and plenty of opportunities to learn new skills about computers and other electronics and appliance commodities.

Cons

Numbers culture is definitely a factor, while not focused on constantly, they are brought up enough to remind you that you are worth more to them if you have bigger numbers rather than have a good work ethic. (Reiterated many times through many coworkers.)

Advice to Management

quit, hiding everything behind buzzwords, and act with more realism. The corporate culture isn't everything. Act like people from time to time.

    I have been working at Best Buy full-time

    Pros

    Office building is nice, many amenities that make it so you don't have to leave, most employees are friendly

    Cons

    Pay; they don't pay competitively in this market, but sell you on the concept of flexible work time (ROWE), however they have since eliminated that policy so you work the same schedule as other places with less pay. Many layers of management are incompetent, managers pass the buck on accountability and push all the blame to those working below them. Managers won't have your back and will be looking out for only themselves. Some layers of management seem to be sexist and more likely to listen to and give opportunities to men. Be leery of many analyst jobs, often this company's concept of an "analyst" is a person that can churn out reports all day long instead of providing insights and adding value. With the elimination of ROWE and many layoffs and re-orgs, morale is very low. I have never worked at a place where so many people want to quit.

    Advice to Management

    Take a hard look at the "talent" you promote into manager and director levels; fix morale
