I worked at Best Buy full-time (more than a year)

Pros

Awesome work environment. Flexibility of schedule/work-life balance, fun fast paced business model. People are team oriented.

Cons

Very political, time in chair becomes important for advancement. Consumer electronics market, and for that matter any retail market, goes through intense seasonal swings.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Give opportunity to younger employees. Younger generations need to see advancement potential otherwise they will create their own opportunities elsewhere. Mentoring becomes a hige part in pursuading people to stay with the company.
