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 8 years)

    Pros

    The discount is pretty good but you have to watch out how much you spend. While retail hours are hectic, they were accommodating of my hours while going to college.

    Cons

    Retail and Management are one of the weaknesses of this company. It is poorly managed from store, district, and higher levels.
