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

    Pros

    Lots of innovation and valuable sales experience for entry level employees. Lots of challenges for young supervisors, providing plenty of opportunity for development. Great employee discount!

    Cons

    Very frequent changes in culture and management. Managers are often under-educated and demand results without providing any meaningful input on how to accomplish those results. Often, intra-store competitions have a negative impact on teamwork.

    Advice to Management

    Identify opportunities, develop a simple plan to exploit them and stick with it.
