    I have been working at Best Buy full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    There is still a lot of room for growth, although there was more about 5-7 years ago. The people you work with is what makes it all worthwhile. They become family. It is a controlled chaotic changing environment, which generally makes it a lot of fun!

    Cons

    The hours are incredibly long, especially for leadership. There are many inconsistencies from store to store, district to district and leader to leader, even with the streamlining efforts. Sometimes you feel like you'll never be good enough, and recognition could use a little work. Also, some of the changes in the company are not in the best interest of its line level employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay the line level people better, if you want premium sales people, it will take more than a possible monthly bonus. Don't forget to recognize your people and live a day in their shoes.

    BestBuy is a great place to work but politics run rampant through the entire store level of store in the company.
