    I worked at Apple full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    The brand sounds good to other employers.

    Cons

    The employees tend to think they are above others. Everything changes, the way they talk, they behave. Its not the company for people who expect sort of normal behavior.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I am pretty sure their attitude will be "couldn't care less".

    I have been working at Apple part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Everyone gets along. It's a perk of being a social retail gig plus you're always up to date with the newest technology. Benefits are amazing - affordable health insurance, transportation coverage, fun workplace.

    Cons

    With working for a prestigious company comes customers who expect top notch attention and service. Luckily my position didn't require a lot of customer interaction. I will say you meet all sorts of personalities at the Apple store.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More monetary compensation is always welcome. But to really move up at Apple, you need to be a top notch worker or have good relationships with your managers.

    401k is very nice
    Employee stock purchase

    Cons

    Retail management is a joke. They used to be from other tech compaines now are former retail employees selling jeans. Have no idea how to deal with purchases over 200

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your people. Know your product. At times the customer is wrong some technology isn't designed for what the customer wants.

    Pros

    The leadership is supportive and your coworkers are awesome. everything is about teamwork, and they will work to make your work/life balance as easy and pleasant as possible.

    Cons

    it takes a long time to become full time. most people are part time workers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase the pay. compared to other companies in the cell phone market the pay is a little low due to there being no commission. Some people do over a million dollars in sales in a year. with all the profits apple makes it could afford to make more people full time and raise the pay.
