    I have been working at Best Buy

    Pros

    Love the company and what it stands for.

    Cons

    There are,like most employers, wide gaps in leadership at the low/mid level. I’ve been with great leaders, and when they are great, the job is the best job I’ve ever had. Same could be said on opposite end of spectrum. There is also still a legacy mindset of fear of losing your job due to past restructures.

    Pros

    Opportunity to grow the company is great. The CEO vision is keeping the company on the path to growth. Fun product category to work in.

    Cons

    Managers are horribly trained. Interview skills are atrocious. Many interview based on trying to prove you are wrong for the job versus being curious and open minded about what you can bring to a job. They cannot see beyond the skills that they have defined for a position.

    Advice to Management

    Like many other roles, Manager should receive a bonus based on a rating of both their skills and talents for working with a team. And Favortism should be a heavily weighted score.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Best Buy full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The salaries are competitive and the bonuses are great. People are generally friendly and the atmosphere is pleasant. Pockets of talent are exceptional (but that’s definitely not the standard—there’s a big swing, talent-wise)

    Cons

    Leadership is not taking the right steps to stay competitive, and I doubt the company will make it. They need to figure out a way forward beyond just cutting margin. And they need a clearer strategy around which projects get funded, so they can focus on fewer, more strategic pilots and actually give them time to work.
