    Work Life Balance Is Not The Best

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Educate Yourself On All Mobile Operating Systems...Not Just Apple. All Apple Customers Usually Having Some Other OS At Home...They Need To Know How Apple Product Work Coheasively With Other Product.

    I have been working at Apple as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    The best part of this job are the people. Our group is so dynamic, comes from all walks of life and yet cohesively works together to get things accomplished. We are the touch point that ensures orders are no longer an intangible number in the system, but a tangible product on it's way to the customer. Whether dealing with online orders or orders for big box retailers, we make it happen.

    Cons

    The job requires dealing with a lot of numbers and you need to have a keen eye for detail.

    I worked at Apple

    Pros

    So many benefits. Parking, transportation, stock options, and now health.

    Cons

    demanding customers that are eroding the companies core values little by little.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't hire outside people to be managers that come from Best Buy, Circuit City, Radio Shack, because they start using their selling "tactics" on customers that come to apple.

    I worked at Apple part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I worked for Apple part time during college and made a lot of friends, connections, and eventually moved on to a full-time job somewhere else since there was not any full-time available.

    Cons

    You work retail hours, but you are busy constantly in the crowded environment so the time can go pretty quickly.

    Pros

    Benefits, team is amazing, management is wonderful, constantly learning on a daily basis. You work with people who are as passionate about what they do as you are- who are determined and destined for great things. Work life balance is great- yes when you need to complete an assignment you are expected to as you should! But if you're always on top of your game and know how to manage your time it's incredible! Vacation, stocks, health benefits, etc.. Are wonderful!

    Cons

    I wouldn't want anything changed as of right now. I do hope that all managers and teams are as amazing as mine!

    I worked at Apple full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Leader in innovation, product development and launch process. Truly global team and global impact.

    Amazing executive team wicked smart with hearts in the right place.

    Benefits second to none.

    Cons

    Has become a huge company that has lost it's former cult-like culture. Kind of jumped the shark in this regard.

    Salaries are good but not great. Offset by amazing stock performance.

    Some people are eager to step on or manipulate anyone to make Director and be the heavy in the room. Not in all groups but some. Not sure how to fix this. Just a fact. Settles down at VP level.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look to promote amazing performers, not just loud ones.
