    I have been working at Best Buy full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The culture at the corporate office is a refreshing change of pace from my previous experiences at very white collar companies. I think this leads to workers here being extremely dedicated to Best Buy, as I've never seen so many long careers at one company.

    Cons

    This same culture that is refreshing, also could be attributing to their downfall. The place is a ghost town at 2pm on a Friday... ever heard of a 40 hour work week people?

    Advice to Management

    Change the culture, better recognize the talent.

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

    Pros

    Best Buy has an absolutely amazing discount for all workers. You recieve 5% above whatever the cost of the item is for Best Buy to purchase. One of the best employee discounts out there.

    Cons

    Toxic culture focused more on numbers than on helping the customer. While everything is coated in a "help the customer" coat of paint, if you don't have perfect numbers (which no one does) then you're going to be looked down upon.
