Negative Outlook
No opinion of CEO

I worked at Best Buy part-time (More than a year)

Pros

Peers were amazing to work with, but like Starbucks they are loosing their talent fast.

Cons

Upper Management was a joke. The red head ran the place the the Marine Corp. Sorry, but talking down to people does not boost morale. If you sell a lot they are your friend, if you don't, your job is at risk.

Advice to Management

They know it all, so why bother. They better change their core competancies and management strategies to raise retention rate. You are losing your talent! Why?
