Great opportunity for advancement while gaining leadership skills.

Best Buy Mobile Manager (Former Employee)
Irvine, CA

ProsGreat company to work for while going to college. There were great advancement opportunities for those who worked hard. Amazing benefits such as health/401K/employee stock purchase plan, tuition reimbursement. It was a very fun job where I enjoyed the relationships that I made with employees and customers.

ConsVery numbers driven culture. The job was very stressful when numbers were down. The company had a "restructuring" every year where leadership positions were eliminated.

Advice to Senior ManagementGo back to the employee-centric days of 2005 and I believe that customer and financial results will improve.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
