    Pros

    Working for a company like Apple will put you in an experience like no other. Leading technology, coworkers with amazing backgrounds, and knowledge that will stay will you forever, not to mention benefits galore.

    Cons

    Achieving full-time has been the biggest challenge. I've now been working for Apple for almost 2 years and although there are openings, most of them are given to those with seniority. Work/Life balance can also be a little challenging when you spend most of your time commuting to and from work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promotions come and go and people who work behind the scenes often get overlooked. Part-time employees should be given the career experiences that full-time employees get.

    Pros

    I have been promoted six times in two years and gotten a performance raise, also, so advancement here is amazing. The benefits are incredible and affordable, and there is a ton of vacation for the job type. They expect a lot but the give a ton in return.

    Cons

    Not for the faint of heart - if you are not dedicated, this job will eat you alive. The standards are high.

    Pros

    Apple invests thousands of dollars in the development of their staff, and puts strong focus on the personal experience of each and every employee.

    Cons

    There are no significant reasons I would identify as issues with this company or work environment.

    Pros

    The company speaks for itself. A true leader in products, customer service and support. I haven't worked for a better company in that respect.

    Cons

    The shift bidding can be a bit "unfair" and has disadvantages. Some things are just not taken into consideration. I think the company (leadership) could do a better job at that.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be a little more concerned with employee concerns. Sometimes it feels like there just isn't a true "concern". Advancements seem to be plentiful, but then again, seem to be so hard to achieve. Hard to describe.

    Pros

    Apple has quite a diverse workforce that consists of passionate and hard working people. They are great when it comes to talent acquisition (the way management handles that talent is another story). Their network of shuttles make it very easy to commute, and their facilities are top notch. Cafeteria food may not be free, but the quality and selection is amazing.

    Cons

    work-life balance is almost non-existent. Expect to work long hours and/or erratic schedules, especially if you work on a team that deals with the introduction of products. The web tools continually have issues, and there is a mentality of "fix it when we get to it" and not at the long-term. Not much room for career growth, unless you try moving to another group within Apple. Some Apple employees sport free swag, as some get nothing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Many of us have skills that we want to use or develop. Management should try to foster that and take our interest in growing more seriously. There are still many of us who want career growth, and do not want to be stuck doing the same tasks over and over.
