    I have been working at Apple

    Pros

    Working at Apple is very invigorating. There is always a challenge that you must overcome. The team, management, leadership, and people you meet will be a great asset to you. Learning and development is a key part of Apple, and they always encourage it. The ability to use resources from team members is a key plus. Working at Apple is a big change, but a change I would never like to move away from.

    Cons

    Working for Apple is different form other jobs. Since technology is always moving faster than the speed of light, you have to keep up to date with everything Apple! This has always been a challenge for many due to the fact that once something comes out, something new will take its place pretty soon! So it is up to you to stay focused and maintain the thirst for technological know how!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reward your employees more. Distinguish people for their efforts more so than just saying thank you! Acknowledge the skilled and challenge them to drive others.

    I have been working at Apple

    Pros

    Changing the way people use their computers and devices.
    Part of a team of bright and talented individuals.
    Proud to work for such a respected company.

    Cons

    Retail.
    Mall.
    On your feet all day.
    Must be positive and upbeat all the time even when people are rude to you or the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Terminate those staff members that under-perform or have poor attitudes. They do not help the company or people's perception of it. Apple doesn't seem willing to get rid if those individuals.

    I have been working at Apple

    Pros

    Working at Apple is a great experience. Every store has a tight knit family feel. Concerns are addressed and there are many routes to follow to promote improvement for your self and for your team.

    Cons

    Growing within Apple does require spunk and professionalism. Because the job is great and generally everyone loves coming to work, people sometimes get complacent and want their promotions handed to them.

    Give more cash bonus' to the employees when the company has record breaking profits. More RSU's would also be appreciated.

    Pros

    People! They say the people are the soul of the company, well, they are also the heart. Learning! There's always something new to learn and theres always someone eager to learn it that wants you to teach it to them.

    Cons

    Yes, it's retail and the hours and staffing are not always what you need it to be. This is your mcguyver challenge! How to be in the busiest store in town, serving the most people, giving them the experience of a lifetime. That's why they hire good people - we try to figure that out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend more time on the floor. Know what the front line is like. Be there for staff, customers and most of all yourselves to gain an understating of why we call it "the front lines".
