    I worked at Best Buy full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Monday - buffalo chicken salad Wednesday - pasta bar Great time to recover from the weekend and prep for the next weekend!

    Cons

    The new CDO has reverted to analysis paralysis and doesn't have the stones to sign-off on a budget or direction. He has killed any advancement in technology for 2019, which leads me to believe BBY is in big trouble with cell phone market shirking and shopping habits changed. A bunch of legacy employees milking the system until their Social Security kicks in.

    Advice to Management

    Better come up with something fast or your holiday will not be so jolly. Good luck finding US citizens willing to work for BBY after the way you are treating people in the short term. Please review Amazon's 13 principles for guidance?
