I worked at Best Buy full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

People you work with care.

Cons

a lot of corporate red tape. Meaning, decisions take forever to get final approval. some areas do not promote well within. always waiting for next round of layoffs.

Advice to Management

too many meetings, never start or end on time, lack of focus on what matters to run the business because everyone wants to be the one putting their 'fingerprint' on a project
