    I worked at Best Buy full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Benefits were pretty in line.

    Cons

    Constant surveilance by Managment, Breaks and hours scrutinized, 1/2 hour lunch was scheduled too late in the day. Stuck on Campus everyday as the vehicles were parked too far for lunch errands. Reviews every other week. Other employees on same level as you were allowed to reprimand / lecture you. Cronyism. Misogyny.

    Advice to Management

    How do you adress a multitude of Big Brother behaviors? Just stop it!

    I worked at Best Buy full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Best Buy has an excellent training program and makes sure that their salesman, service crews, and system designers are always in the know. And when one person feels a lack of confidence in their ability to answer a question there is always an associate a text or walkie away who has an answer. Best Buy’s network of knowledge is vast and stores and teams are never afraid to talk to each other. The culture of the company...

    Cons

    While teamwork is often emphasized as a must, there are some disjointed system and definite disconnects in communication. A major example of this would be between different sects if the company such as store associates and Geek Squad installers. Best Buy store associates will sell new home theater systems or home computer setups and accompany them with Geek Squad installation. Geek Squad will show up at the home blind...

    Advice to Management

    Work on the communication of your crews. For Managers of Geek Squad to Managers if store teams and Magnolia. You need to share with each other and with your respective teams the expectations and limitations of your own team. This will prevent strife between your employees and the endless frustration you handle on a daily basis made by the lack of communication or understanding in what one another has to sell or do....

    I have been working at Best Buy for more than 9 years

    Pros

    They care about their employees. Just look at what they are doing for all those who are affected by the natural disasters we have been dealing with over the past couple months. Check YouTube if you want to see a great video on what BBY did for their employees in Puerto Rico

    Cons

    Since I work for a big local company everyone thinks we all make a ton ofmoney

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up and make sure to keep putting your employees first.

    I worked at Best Buy full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great work environment, free parking, lots of exposure to technology, and large clean building. People are generally very nice. Great PTO, starting analysts get as much as 23 days PTO and work-life balance is very nice. No need to stay late or work weekends like Amazon or other work-to-the-bone environments

    Cons

    Pay is not as competitive as other fortune 500 retailers. This lack of pay is the primary reason I heard of for people to want to leave.

    Advice to Management

    Work environment and people are amazing but utilizing pay incentives quickly becomes necessary if you want to retain top talent.

    Pros

    As the IT organization is very large, there is great opportunity to learn about any facet from Operations, Architecture, Processes, to InfoSec.

    Cons

    You are there to work and are replaceable. If you want to learn something it will be on your own time. Everything also comes down to the costs - short term decisions may be made if they cost less than a better long term solution.
