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.

    Pros

    One of the value statements is "Have fun while being the best" and it definitely holds true. It is a fun and busy atmosphere and there is always something new to learn about. Technology is always changing and so is Best Buy.

    Cons

    Its a lot like high school. There are the cool kids and the nerds and it can tend to be kind of gossip-y.
