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

Pros

Working with a number of very smart people. New executive management (in place since second half of 2012) is very decisive and they are very focused on delivering results. New direction is already positively impacting the stock price and the way analysts and press are viewing Best Buy's performance and outlook.

Cons

A clear long term strategy still needs to be fully articulated.

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

    Pros

    Great co-workers, fun work environment (depending on the location), solid HR department, pretty good benefits package

    Cons

    Discount comes and goes, management is lacking, hard to find a supervisor or manager most of the time. Employees are not nearly as important as the customer or daily goals.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees, and treat them as well as you require them to treat customers. They are your front lines and are more valuable than you think. Higher quality training would help as well.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees. They know what customers want more than corporate.
