I worked at Best Buy full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

its retail, but they were extremely flexible and accommodating for a student. Relaxed environment, and always had a lot of fun. Besides that, the employee discount rocks!

Cons

did i mention it was retail? Really, the only con is for the industry, not the company. retail just requires you be available essentially 24x7.

    I have been working at Best Buy full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    - innovative, collaborative environment
    - opportunity to move within functional area - capabilities or business teams
    - smart, driven leadership

    Cons

    - constant reorganization
    - inability to define the brand
    - "late to the game" vs. innovative competitors

    Advice to Management

    Focus and prioritize. Stay with a plan. Give more opportunity to move between functional areas to develop strong business managers. Do not structure all business teams the same way; this should depend on business needs. Figure out multi-channel and how to effectively compete.
