Pros

Best Buy is an innovative, faced paced environment with ample career advancement. The company recognizes the challenges ahead and is working to build on the changing environment in consumer electronics

Cons

The changing culture has created a sense of instability at all levels for employment. While change is necessary, the company continually has laid off workers at all levels

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Work to rebuild a sense of pride and stability in the organization. Top talent at all levels is leaving the company for this very reason. Recognize the level of talent you have working within the company.

    Current Employee - Sales Associate

    I have been working at Best Buy part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Most people working there are still in school or are fairly young. Get a great discount on all the latest electronics. You are also paid reasonably for the job that you do.

    Cons

    Managers can be heavily performance driven with a lot of pressure to sell and you don't work on commission so there isn't a large incentive to over achieve .
