Pros

Great environment to work in. Lots of room for advancement, if you're willing to work. Most of the leadership team are down to Earth. Great discount on certain items.

Cons

Hardly enough money to live. Frequent hour cuts. Very passive approach to asset protection. Frequent miss-communication between leadership team and upper management.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Cut down executive payroll, and share a little more with line level employees. The people in the blue shirts are bringing in the money, they should make enough to live a comfortable life. Get a realistic mindset on asset protection, you can't just put someone on the front door and hope no one steals anything. Before making huge decisions that could be of detriment to the company, consult line level employees for their opinion; Often times when Corporate rolls out a new operating model the blue shirts are able to pick out the weak points from the beginning.

    Pros

    Working with a number of very smart people. New executive management (in place since second half of 2012) is very decisive and they are very focused on delivering results. New direction is already positively impacting the stock price and the way analysts and press are viewing Best Buy's performance and outlook.

    Cons

    A clear long term strategy still needs to be fully articulated.
