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

    Pros

    There really wasn't any pros. They hire people with no experience, but are picky for no specific reason. Discriminates in both employment and treatment of current employees.

    Cons

    No opportunity for advancement, horrible treatment of employees, highly unethical.


  2. "Can be a good company - but its all about cutting costs and piling more work on workers"

    I worked at Best Buy full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Generally the company culture is good - people really care about doing the right thing.

    Cons

    As with most companies - you are very important until they want to cut costs - then you aren't so important anymore. Focus is on too many things which makes the core business suffer.

    Advice to Management

    Cut the politics - if you actually listen to people vs. just senior management you might hear some interesting things.
