    I have been working at Best Buy full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The work itself isn't inherently difficult, but it can be interesting and rewarding, and you always have an opportunity to help someone. The people and environment make it a wonderful place to work.

    Cons

    The money is beyond terrible, and individual performance appears to have little bearing on advancement or raises. If I could give compensation & benefits a 0, I would. Livable wages come at the supervisory/management level, and opportunities for that sort of advancement are scant despite attrition rates.
