I worked at Best Buy full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Excellent training and networking opportunities, great benefits including tuition reimbursement.

Cons

Leadership positions are very stressful! Lack on continuity in communication...expectations vary from manager to manager, store to store. If you have an excellent manager, you will do well and learn a lot. But often managers are promoted based on numbers, not on managerial and leadership skills. High turnover in management.

Advice to Management

Learn to talk to each other! Get on the same page! And give your employees some security by not "reorganizing" and letting people go every single spring!
