    I have been working at Apple (More than a year)

    Pros

    The position is at home. The company is AMAZING. There are limitless advancement opportunities. You work with some very cool people and the leadership cares about your development. You may get coaching but you never get battered or belittled. The pay is decent and the benefits include, 401(k) match, stock purchase options, product discounts and discounts on services across many different areas, education assistance, child care assistance, paid vacation, sick time and other time off options, health club Reimbursment or bike cost set off. You get 1.5 time for OT and it's pretty much unlimited as long as you don't exceed 12 hours in a day or 59 total in a week.

    Cons

    The schedule changes every 90 days and you have to bid for your shifts so you never know what you are going to get. This makes it extremely hard to plan your life to far in advance. You are also pretty much assured to work a Saturday or Sunday.

    Advice to Management

    The management consists of a team manager and their area manager. Meetings are held over video and chat. They are supportive of individual development and help you to reach your goal. Management will challenge you if you want to advance but it's always in the spirit of making you better to prepare you for the next role.

    Challenging, Rewarding, but ZERO work/life balance. Most satisfying , most difficult and most rewarding job ever.

    Pros

    We work with geniuses - in every department, We create innovative products that thrill our customers and create new product categories - who else can say that?

    Cons

    ZERO ZERO ZERO work/life balance. Execs have been saying for YEARS that they understand and will make it better. But in actuality, it gets worse every year! It is obviously top management LIP SERVICE because if they meant it, they could fix it tomorrow. They have hundreds of BILLIONS in the bank. If they REALLY cared about employee work/life balance, they could bring aboard the right number of folks to make that issue dissolve. Sick of hearing the lies. Just don't lie about wanting to fix it, when they clearly DON'T care

    Pros

    Excellent work environment as you get to work from the comfort of your own home. The people you meet and work along side (though strictly via video/text chat and email) are amazing! Everybody believes in fostering growth and enhancing your skills. The type of dynamic most folks have with their Teams and Managers is inspiring. Working for Apple made me realize a lot about myself in order to become a better person.

    Cons

    Your work schedule, though flexible, is set for anywhere from a 3-6 month period. The pay is excellent but the environment can be very stressful. Management is mostly competent and helpful, but a few bad eggs do make it through. Reaching out above the normal escalation path is frowned upon, so getting to your boss' boss is difficult without them knowing.

    Pros

    Great health benefits, discounts on stocks, fitness reimbursement, free stuff, amazing discounts, great hourly wage, welcomed feedback.

    Cons

    Hmm.. I got nothing. Apple does everything possible to keep the employees happy. They welcome feedback and actually make changes things that are common "issues".

    Advice to Management

    Keep the benefits coming.

    Pros

    You get amazing benefits whether you are part time or full time. The environment in the retail store is great too, it feels like a family. Everyone is supportive of you and is always there to help if you are struggling with something or need help. LOVE working at Apple.

    Cons

    Sometimes it gets very busy in the stores which can get kind of stressful, but the pros outweigh that in my opinion. Some customers tend to be very rude which does get tiring.

    Advice to Management

    Treat everyone the same. There is a lot of sucking up to management. Other than that, keep up the good work!

    Pros

    The retail side of Apple does an impressive job of valuing customers and employees at every level. The policies and technology tend to support the customers and employees verses the other way around. Benefits packages are excellent.

    Cons

    Retail hours include weekends and holidays.
