Best Buy is a GREAT company to work for but unfortunately you can run into managers that lack development skills.

ProsBenefits are great!
Medical, Dental, Vision, Matching 401K and Tuition reimbursement. Employee Accommodation and discounts.
Development is highly encouraged for those that seek it out. They provide a lot of resources.
Compensation is good.

ConsSometimes you run into bad managers. So its a good idea to do research before taking a new position.

Advice to Senior ManagementUnderstand and know your employees. Sometime personalities don't always get along. The employee might be a good worker and actually function better under someone else's leadership. So let the pride go and help them into a different role under new management.

I used to think it was always the employee's fault and not my leadership skills. Help them succeed.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
