    Negative Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Best Buy full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    -World class corporate campus -Most of the employees are wonderful people -Senior leadership truly is working very hard to turn the company around -Employee discount, especially vendor accommodations, is wonderful

    Cons

    - Most hourly store employees are paid so little they can't truly leverage the discount (most items they can afford can be found online for even less than the discount) - At corporate there are many, many leaders who grew up in the company and k ow full well they will be unable to find similar paying jobs elsewhere. So, they do everything they can to knock you down so they look good. -Most (but not all) leaders in... HR are some of the least competent and unethical leaders you will ever meet -The increase in the stock price is not indicative of store sales growth (online sales are increasing, store sales are not) -Other companies in other industries do not look favorably upon retail experience -While lay can be quite competitive if bonus is hit, you must work for an entire year before you will learn if you were even paid at the medium level for the entire year (I.e., bonus is too heavily leveraged) -I just don't see how Best Buy remains relevant in an Amazon age
