    I have been working at Best Buy full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Coworkers are very friendly and it's generally a "fun" workplace. Very passionate workforce. There's a reason Best Buy is still around today in the age of Amazon. The leadership team is great, I would truly recommend friends or family to work here.

    Cons

    Some "legacy" people have been around for a long time and really shouldn't be managers.

    Advice to Management

    Add some of the management layers back into the company so that there's more room for upward mobility.

    Base pay is lower than most employees want, but the bonus is sizable if you're a good employee.

    Pros

    A fun and welcoming environment with a great work life balance.

    Cons

    Really wish they would filter out the lazy and/or incompetent employees who waste people's time because they don't want to learn and grow

    Advice to Management

    Please when people express their issues with other employees's laziness and incompetence please look into it. It really slows down productivity when we have to work for 2 or 3 people.
