    Pros

    There has always been plenty of opportunity to make an impact at Best Buy. You can work on high-visibility projects and build a good resume. The company used to put high-value on employee engagement and giving employees opportunities to give their opinions on what the company was doing. Execs used to care about their people.

    Cons

    The biggest challenge today is that top execs truly, genuinely do not care about how employees feel about working at Best Buy. They have actually said so. People work to serve the stock price, which now enrichens only a couple top execs - the CEO and CFO, both recent outsiders. They are Wall Street darlings, but a nightmare when it comes to creating a positive work experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop sucking. Harvest your millions and move on.

    Pros

    This company will work around your school schedule, and has a very small incentive while you're with them.

    Cons

    Low pay, huge corporate ladder, management doesn't communicate with its employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire half of the management, this company has too much red tape.
