    I have been working at Apple full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    If you are ambitious and competitive. Specialist is for you. It is so much fun. I love Apple products so being able to make people happy and getting to play and learn on these products are amazing.

    Cons

    Not a lot of training outside of core. Although they do have a lot of training for customers on there site which is a great at home utility if you need to work on certain tech questions.

    Keep doing a great job!

    Pros

    Insane benefits, insane benefits, insane benefits insane benefits, insane benefits. Did I mention how insane the benefits are? Finest senior leadership around. Finest CEO you could imagine.

    Cons

    None. If you are unhappy it's likely your own fault. If I repeat, if you are unhappy it'd likely umyour fault. If you come to apple with unhappy baggage Apple won't fix that for you. It is your responsibilty.

    Pros

    Fair compensation. The best benefits. You are paid for every minute you work. Happy upbeat working environment.

    Cons

    The hours can be crazy at times. It is retail after all. Not enough vacation. Needs more engagement with upper management.

    Pros

    The opportunity for growth in the various fields within the Apple Retail environment are available, from Specialist, to Expert, Family Room, Genius to Creative. I work with some of the best coworkers who truly care about their jobs at Apple and the customers they help.

    Cons

    During my one year experience working at the retail level I haven't found any CONS working at Apple.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The work life balance is something that could be improved upon and looked at during the scheduling of hours.

    Pros and Cons of working at apple

    I have been working at Apple

    Pros

    The benefits at Apple are great, they allow you to get the products you want or that your family wants.

    Cons

    But when you work there it can be tough at times. Working at Apple can be a very tough job and can get overwhelming.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get good with talking to people, other than that Apple will teach you anything else that you need to know.

    I worked at Apple full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Apple is the type of place where you can do the best work of your life. They have all the resources and incredibly high expectations.

    They also pay their employees well, provide tons of training opportunities, and have great products to work on. In other companies, I sometimes had to compromise an idea to bring it in under budget. That very rarely happens to truly great ideas at Apple.

    Additionally, I found that my personal values were very in line with the overall compass of the company.

    Cons

    It's exceptionally intense. So respect for personal time can exist as long as you work for the right person. If you don't, that can be a bad thing.

    Also as I understand it now, the group I was in has grown so big it's lost some of its magic. They've had a hard time maintaining the consistency of greatness that was a little easier when the team was smaller.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on quality. Make sure you're bringing in great folks and stay true to what has made Apple so incredible.

    Pros

    Each R&D org has its own culture. I love mine, but I've heard stories from other groups that sound unpleasant to work for.

    It's such a huge company that there are always positions in other groups if you are interesting in changing jobs.

    Cons

    The secrecy gets in the way of open collaboration.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I've been pretty impressed with the upper mgmt. I'm not in any position to offer advice there.
