    I have been working at Best Buy

    Pros

    Employee discount. Fair pay. Has potential to have some fun while at work. The company (somewhat) makes you feel valued as an employee, which is nice.

    Cons

    While Best Buy has been improving financially from years ago, there are still lots of changes happening with little to no notice. Restructuring, people getting laid off. Management can be good or bad. In my career with Best Buy, I’ve had my fair share of great leaders, and absolutely terrible leaders. Unfortunately, the terrible ones either don’t go anywhere, or get promoted (which is mind blowing sometimes).
