I have been working at Best Buy full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Pay, Benefits, Bonus structure and company geography lend to Best Buy being a great employer

Cons

Frequent travel that is often last minute, inconsistency in performance management, highly subjective decision making by leadership, inconsistent human resources practices. Annual restructures lend to a high level of anxiety due to fear of losing your job.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Understand your workforce. The company claims to be employee focused however their actions rarely support this statement.

    I have been working at Best Buy part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Meeting new people (customers and peers on floor), being in constant contact with new technologies and services, free stuff (often through trainings and other events)

    Cons

    Favoritism - very much a "numbers" game, dated logistic systems, limited transparency (on floor staff often are left in the dark on need to know information)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    While managing is obviously your job (as I need to know when to work) - leading is far more important. Inspire your associates, encourage them, and they will want to work for you willingly.
