    I worked at Best Buy (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    A wonderful group of professionals that built the company on their core belief that empowered employees can build great customer experiences and sustainable outcomes for the shareholder

    Cons

    Those core leaders are gone, and the new leadership has a very different approach. right approach for the context, but the triage is not a approach that I would like to spend precious work years in.

    Advice to Management

    You are doing a lot of the right on base execution issues-need to rebuild engine for a more sustainable future. You are seen by most inside as folks looking for fast turn and personal cash out-that approach is catching.
