    The people I have met through Apple have helped me more than they know. They were living proof that it was possible for women to have successful careers in science and technology. if you work hard you can do anything.

    Cons

    Salary between employees varies a lot with a different vendors for the same role, that was a surprising to learn.

    I worked at Apple part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Company has the best training program for customer service (they want you to succeed and grow). Compensation was above average for a tech job. Benefits are excellent and are also offered to part time employees. Good discount on Apple products.

    Cons

    There aren't that many cons to working at Apple. The customers can be difficult at times but it's nothing that can't be handled. New product launches can be overwhelming but in the end you feel proud that you were a part of something special.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Great work. I enjoyed working for Apple and wished I stayed. You truly develop your employees and your products are amazing. Keep it up!!!!
