I worked at Apple

Pros

Just being able to say that I worked at Apple was pretty cool. Work was interesting and challenging. Didn't really have time to take a breath between projects. I liked the feeling of achieving some pretty hefty goals in a heroic time frame. Great sense of accomplishment. Good to see things that I have worked on be successful in the marketplace.

Cons

Biggest challenge was balancing work and home life. The pace of the company is better suited to people in the early part of their career. As someone who now has a young family, career has taken a back seat. Unfortunately, I couldn't balance my changing priorities with my job. I would love to be back at Apple, but I cherish being able to have dinner with my kids every night.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I still love Apple. Just wished there was a better way to have a balanced life and work at this company.

    Good learning experience, but don't expect to get paid what your worth.

    I have been working at Apple

    Pros

    You will learn a lot regarding Apple's software and hardware, coworkers are generally very nice people, and Apple does have a very innovative retail operation.

    Cons

    The pay is a joke, especially given how much information they expect you to know, the metrics they use to measure job performance are flawed and provide an incomplete picture at best, some managers are nice, but others are a nightmare to work for and will nitpick you to death over insignificant details.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your retail employees what they are worth! It's ridiculous that you horde over $100 billion in profits while under-paying your retail employees, especially given all that you expect from them. I made more money 10 years ago as a cashier where much less was expected from me than I do working for Apple.
