    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Best Buy full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    I work as a PM, recently noticed someone commenting that we don't have a PMO department. But I have been with Best Buy for about 7 years and the PMO team has been established with Best Buy before I started.

    Cons

    Far too often good and great employees get burnt out because of poor Project Managers who do not have a basic or general idea of what is required as a Project manager, such as communication and knowing what is going on with your project instead of asking other departments who are not involved. As well as a lack of PMs having a basic knowledge of the concept of their project and department.

    Advice to Management

    It would be a lot easier to get projects done on time and within budget if there was more care put into vetting PMs and their competency of general and basic PM knowledge as well as subject knowledge of the department they work for. For example having a Marketing Project Manager managing the Technical Project with no back ground or technical knowledge or the desire to learn.

    Former Employee - Merchandising Specialist in Springfield, MO

    I worked at Best Buy full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Access to accommodations (manufacture discount). Access to employee discount. Good managers/supervisors. No sales drama.

    Cons

    Individual performance is nearly unmeasurable in this position, judged as a group. Shrinking pool of accommodations and availability. UMRP goods don't get a discount, despite avg. cost information. Pay is currently behind similar jobs in the area (2019), used to be ahead after previous restructure (2016). New responsibilities and position titles for everyone in department. Electronic tags will eliminate... traditional Merchandising.

    Advice to Management

    District and Regional corporate merchandising is shooting from the hip.
