I worked at Best Buy as a contractor (More than a year)
Solid team structures, fun work and learning environment.
Contractor's sifted through frequently. Contractors do a lot of the work that the full time employees see as non important. When contracts are about to expire management seem to bid for another contractor at a lower rate and have the old contractor train the new before their contract expires.
Advice to Management
Focus on the strength of your employees. Include contractors in paid FTE events. Mix contractors through-out your FTE's. This will make them feel more important and help them gain respect from FTE's seeing all that they do.
I worked at Best Buy full-time (Less than a year)
Very helpful, agile environment. Small, dedicated teams, project managers were dedicated and excellent. Focused group and very success driven. Really collaborative and it was always about getting the next task(s) completed successfully.
The "grind" as it is called. The turnarounds on projects after receipt of the marketing plans was extraordinarily quick. Due to the pace, the quality wasn't always what I would have hoped, but deadlines are deadlines. It was manageable, but there wasn't a lot of time to put your best effort forward.
I have been working at Best Buy full-time (More than 5 years)
Great teamwork, excellent management, good benefits, flexible hours,
I don't have downsides at the moment.
