Pros

The company core values are awesome and everything Best Buy stands for is great. I've been in a thriving store where managers were on the same hype as corporate. But once that management team was split up, the chemistry changed in the store.

Cons

Sometimes promotions are based on who you a friends with as opposed to the talent you bring to the table.

Advice to Management

Practice what you preach. Don't forget that without every single employee in the store you cannot do your job as well. Appreciate every employee and what they have to offer. Managers get great bonuses, while the line level employees get your hollering when you don't.

    Cons

    lack of pay raises. managers are usually very self center and no regards for employees. seen plenty of worth employees get dumped over cost cutting moves

    show more recognition towards employee. constantly reminds us how much potential we can make but never really show as management collect too much bonus and pay for doing little or no work
