    Pros

    The Benefits are truly amazing... They cover so much... They give you $100 for commuting every month, pay 150 of your gym membership, health is awesome...
    The people are great, both customers and co-workers.
    You're given different things on different days to do (Phone room, Greeter, Personal Set Up, etc)
    Pay is excellent as well!

    Cons

    Lots of managers.. so it can get confusing when you're told to do one thing, and then corrected... then corrected again... A lot of competition for any position in the Family room (Family Room Specialist, Creative, Genius.)

    Advice to Management

    Be supportive.. give fair chances!

    Pros

    - Getting to work on the latest and greatest wireless gadgets - iPhone/iPads
    - Getting the opportunity to work on latest wireless technologies such as LTE, IMS, SIP
    - Opportunity to work with multiple groups of people - QA, dev, product/project management, external vendors, hardware, network operators
    - Being able to build products that people LOVE to use

    Cons

    - Work/life balance is not there
    - Apple doesn't necessarily groom their employees to learn a specific skillset, they will simply hire someone who already has the skillset
    - There is no one to help you out initially and it is extremely easy to get lost in all the confusion
