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

    Pros

    I work as a PM, recently noticed someone commenting that we don't have a PMO department. But I have been with Best Buy for about 7 years and the PMO team has been established with Best Buy before I started.

    Cons

    Far too often good and great employees get burnt out because of poor Project Managers who do not have a basic or general idea of what is required as a Project manager, such as communication and knowing what is going on with your project instead of asking other departments who are not involved. As well as a lack of PMs having a basic knowledge of the concept of their project and department.

    Advice to Management

    It would be a lot easier to get projects done on time and within budget if there was more care put into vetting PMs and their competency of general and basic PM knowledge as well as subject knowledge of the department they work for. For example having a Marketing Project Manager managing the Technical Project with no back ground or technical knowledge or the desire to learn.

    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Best Buy full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    you will quickly find out that some people you work with are absolute gold but others not so much, the mix is huge

    Cons

    constant reshuffling of district managers and changing the way the warrant or geek squad service prices and what is covers becomes very confusing over time.
    management constantly lets mediocre performance slide without any actual follow up on the person until they buy them out later on without actually telling the people before how they can fix the issue.

    Advice to Management

    you need to pick a plan and stick with it.
