I have been working at Best Buy full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Flexible work environment
Plenty of opportunity to move up and around
Great work relationships
Cross-functional and high-visibility projects are abound

Cons

Salary leaves a little to be desired
Leadership has dropped the ball on the company's direction

Advice to Management

Move faster and listen to employees below the VP and Director levels. Most companies are started by a young entrepreneur with great ideas, and then are run by "experienced" management who kill the companies because they believe they have the right answers. Keep your finger on the pulse and CHANGE with the times!

    I have been working at Best Buy part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent selling experience and capability to tailor solutions to consumer needs

    Cons

    When interviewing for the job, the interviewer made it seem more that the position was tailored towards the customer than towards generating corporate revenue. Every Saturday morning, my department sat down in the conference room, discussing margin goals and the past week's performance. The performance was always below target, because target is set exceptionally high. The managers really push the sale, and question you like an idiot when a customer decides not to purchase your computing solution after your initial recommendations. The training process is very minimal, which can be viewed as either positive or negative, depending on how quickly you like to get your feet wet in the business.

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees as people, not as tools and resources
