    I have been working at Best Buy full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    In my short time at Best Buy I've come to realize how great of a place it is to work. The people are great. The processes are streamlined. The CEO and executive board actually care about the business and its people. The benefits and great too.

    Cons

    Like most companies, Best Buy treats security as an expense.

    Advice to Management

    Stop giving money to direct competition (such as Amazon AWS).

    I have been working at Best Buy as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Always something happening. Always something broken, and hence you will have something to fix!!

    Cons

    Screwed if you are a contractor, especially if you are going through a 3rd party Asian firm. Watch how many hours you work, or, if you work more, then make sure you get paid for the same.

    Advice to Management

    Listen, and learn. There is a reason why Amazon and other companies are growing while Best Buy is not.
