    I have been working at Apple full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    -high energy social environment
    -quality coworkers
    -technologically advanced
    -high variety of job types
    -solid benefits even for part time employees
    -company has good presence (globally/socially)

    Cons

    Its low income.
    The retail environment means dealing with the public at large. If that is not your thing then this probably isn't the job for you.
    A lot of people want to work for the company. You may feel easily replaceable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My listed low income con says more about our current socioeconomics than my feelings for Apple, Inc. Will big business companies cut profit margins and pay retail/service employees a higher wage? I doubt it if quality applicants continue to apply and accept a meager bargain in compensation. My intelligent, creative coworkers work hard to please a demanding public while selling an amazing product but typically have to acquire a second source of income in order to succeed financially.
