    Pros

    Excellent training to handle customer service, impressive support system, very well organized. Great experience overall.

    Cons

    Working in retail means they control your schedule and your life. Always have to work weekends. Holiday vacations are barred. Being "always on" can be exhausting. Burn out is common. Limited advancement options

    Advice to Management

    Build a gateway between Retail and Corporate! So many talented people start at the stores and move on to other companies.

    Pros

    Good pay, amazing benefits, fun environtment, awesone discount, stock option, and my coworkers were and still are my family.

    Cons

    Not any room to grow where I was located. If you're willing to go to California the door is open for growth. Anywhere else in the country and you're going to be stuck in a retail store which I didn't want to do or be stuck workING the same job forever.

    Advice to Management

    Don't keep the same people in a position when it's obvious they are not only not performing but are not even showing up for the job.

    Great healthcare options, competitive salary, great CS training

    Cons

    Strict high school-like attendance system, difficult to progress in company, will suck the soul out of you if you stay too long

    Advice to Management

    Not everyone's trying to game the system, treat people like adults

    Pros

    Apple is good to their employees when it comes to compensation and stock benefits. The people are also the best in the business. Always being challenged by my peers. Great food, as well.

    Cons

    Everyone struggles with a work/life balance, but that's pretty common in this industry. Old school boarding for meetings takes up time that could be spent doing other things. Hard to move up here, as well. Plan on being stuck in the position you were hired for for at least 8-9 years.

    Pros

    Apple does a great job supporting and developing their personal. You have to put forth the effort and show interest.

    Cons

    Still has a little bit of feel like a big corporation, red tape, methods, etc which you can expect.

    Advice to Management

    Keep focusing on the individual and they will grow with the company. Don't play favorites, and take into account the individuals that work their butts of and those that just float along.
