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

Pros

ROWE, relaxed culture, they "recycled" their employees, coffee shops and gym.

Cons

Lot sof people not wanting to work (esp on Mondays and Fridays), a lot of "networking" when really it's just people messing around. Jobs that a college student who wants to work 25 hrs a week could be doing, is filled by a person who is willing to work for cheap at 40 hrs a week.... difficult to switch positions internally.

Advice to Management

Give your hard workers a decent raise!

    I worked at Best Buy part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Overall there was a positive team atmosphere, the job worked with my schedule as a student, and most managers recognized it was a stepping stone for me until I left college.

    Cons

    For some people customer interaction and some managers pushing aggressive selling strategies was a big downside; sometimes you had to deal with extremely irate customers
