    I have been working at Best Buy full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Best Buy has multiple reasons why it is a great place to work. If you want to move up or to a more relevant position, management will work with you to put in the place that will benefit the company the most. Upper management is always there to listen and help. Our executive staff has a plan and a vision

    Cons

    Currently we are in a rocky state. Although stabilizing quickly, you still have some uncertainty about your job and your company. You really need to be a team player and put in the extra hours if you want to work here. We can't afford bad employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great work. You make this place an amazing work environment. If I can I plan on retiring from Best Buy

    Pros

    Great friendships are made! Never forget the great customer service and products. Networking was awesome with customers.

    Cons

    The pay for what you have to do and what you are responsible with is lower than expected. If you are in upper management, pay is awesome, but line level is just...ok. As a lead, I had to do quite a bit for the "floor cap" pay that I was at, and much was expected of me just as a manager without the pay of one. It is all politics. You have to figure out best buy from the inside out to understand and make your way up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work with employees like you were line level (as you once were, or remember to be). Even if you have never been line level, think about the lives of those that you manage, and try to work with and empathise with what it is like to be in their shoes.
