    I have been working at Apple part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The benefits are all fantastic

    Cons

    If you're a college student working at Apple retail, once you graduate with your Bachelors it doesn't seem like better opportunities tend to arise within the company other than staying sales or repairs, which can get stagnant.

    Advice to Management

    Train development leaders to actually develop their team! We don't know what to do next without your guidance. I feel like my career at Apple will stay stagnant even after I obtain my degree, when I have so many skills that I could put to use.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Decent wage for Retail, Mostly Great Colleagues, Benefits (Health Insurance, Stock Purchasing, 401K, Discounts).

    Cons

    Retail, Management, often numbers driven, semi-boring unless a new product is released, CULT-ure. Managers will push sales for their bonuses, which sales people do not partake in.

    Advice to Management

    You must have good people skills to manage people well. Particularly in this setting.

    I worked at Apple full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    People are insanely smart, driven, some pretty chill... and all dedicated to doing their best work.

    Cons

    Upper management in Marcom needs to pay attention to their tech teams or risk the trickle of devs leaving turn into a full exodus

    Advice to Management

    - listen to your teams - value developers as much as your do creative - get out of your own way - stop treating people like mere moveable gears in the machine

    I have been working at Apple full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great campus with a great cafeteria whose menu changes every day. Solid culture intent on improving customer experience

    Cons

    Low mobility after a certain point. The Austin campus has limited opportunities for individuals that want to look beyond customer support

    Advice to Management

    Over-focus on certain metrics can cause despair within the employee community when the metrics seem unattainable or over-emphasized at cost to the customer experience

    Pros

    People are smart and for the most part friendly and fun. Managers are human and treat you like you are too. Growth opportunities and learning are driven by employee initiative. Most employees have other jobs/skills/degrees and haven't found work in those fields and need a steady income so are interesting to be around.

    Cons

    You start to get good at the entry level position and get bored within 6-9 months. Growth opportunities and learning are driven by employee initiative. Differently hourly wage for same role dictated by corporate without much explanation. Acceptable standard for customer experience at Apple much higher than acceptable standard for employee experience within Apple retail.

    Advice to Management

    Care as much about employee experience working at Apple as you do the customer experience in the store and the customer experience will do better. Be honest about environmental and human rights impacts of manufacturing the products being sold and allow employee's to participate further in helping make the changes to allow Apple to help the human race (beyond the limited scope of producing useful technology).
