    I worked at Best Buy part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Very good treatment by management, I felt that I was appreciated every time I walked in. Our store manager was very kind and always made sure to nurture the Best Buy Employee culture as much as possible. Best Buy makes an effort to promote a team identity which greatly benefitted both the store and its employees.

    Cons

    Sometimes I did start to feel a lack of motivation to continue doing my best and relied solely on my own constitution to continue it's growth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you want to sell more optmized packages and geek squad black tie protection, I am sure that with a little work you can train employees to sell them more efficiently.

    Pros

    I am never bored. There's always work to get done. I enjoy the people and the culture of the company. I have worked for another large company (150k+ employees) and a small company (~1.5k employees) and working for Best Buy, by far, has been the greatest experience.

    Cons

    Current state of the business makes it difficult to feel secure in my position. Best Buy also lacks discipline in terms of staying focused on the work that's critical to the business. There are many work groups running around with their heads cut off and from my vantage point, most of the time, the work is not going to help the company with their challenges.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get focused. Learn to lay out priorities and objectives/goals for your employees. Reduce the layers in management and the executive team. Directors should have a minimum of 5 employees. There's no reason any director shouldn't have a real "team" of people working for them. A good leader knows how to take a team and delegate responsibilities appropriately.
