    I have been working at Best Buy full-time for less than a year

    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.

    I worked at Best Buy part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Worked well with my schedules for classes while I was in college. My management team allowed for me to work around when I had classes. The job paid well for what I needed at the time.

    Cons

    Was not able to obtain any full time job positions. I finished my degree and I wanted to stay but there were no positions available to me. Sadly, this was the reason for my leaving.
