I worked at Best Buy full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Great people to work with. Lively Work environment. Awesome product knowledge with excellent technicians (Geeksquad) Right on Hand.

Cons

High pressure sales for non-commissioned job. Management was very pushy about their numbers. Annual reviews were poorly conducted. Annual raise was very minimal ($.30). New hires were getting paid more than me (I started out making $8.50, annual raise put me to 8.80, new hires were making $9.00 and management wouldn't raise my pay so I left the company.

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Best Buy as a contractor (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Always changing, dynamic teams, company has a "young spirit" even though they are a corporate giant.

    Cons

    There are a lot of hours put in to planning and talking about planning. Meetings are plentiful. The Holiday seasons are always tough because you have to remember you are working for a retail giant and they have to be at 100% from a few weeks before Thanksgiving until the New Year.

    Advice to Management

    The move from external vendors to an in-sourcing model should extend to all areas.
