I worked at Blockbuster full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Good forward looking identification of market conditions
At one time, great brand recognition, still salvageable

Cons

(previously) Poor choices in meeting market conditions (strategy identification & execution)
- Held on to the belief they know movies best (making internal solutions more complex than necessary).... long after innovation in movie delivery proved more valuable (redbox, netflix)
-(previously) management decisions not sufficiently strategic, spreading focus and resources too thin to achieve necessary survival
-Resource management by layoff. Instead of managing new hires, BB allowed to hire too many people this year, layoffs every spring (illustrates a disregard for people/employees)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Management has already made many necessary changes

    Pros

    Fun working environment if you like movies and talking to customers

    Cons

    Too much change in management, marketing, overall structure

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get down on the sales floor yourself and see what it's like, quit changing things for the short term because it affects the long term
