    I have been working at Apple full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great A-Players all around. Culture that is fast paced, demanding and laser focused on results forces you to perform to stay on top of your game. Great culture to be in.

    Cons

    Relatively flat hierarchy limits vertical career advancement. Being relentlessly driven also means it is not easy to achieve work/life balance.

    I have been working at Apple full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Co-workers, product discounts, occasional interesting client projects.

    Cons

    High school politics, micromanagement, holding up opportunities for potential people, constantly teaching people basic computer skills gets mundane. Work/life balance is terrible. I don't see much of a future here. "Credo" and "culture" are a bit to be desired. One thing to believe in the products but the culture is way too much "juice" with their "fearless feedback", etc. Too many employees also don't know much about the product and use.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let Creatives actually BE Creatives! My store was mismanaged from the get go with management making it seem like getting your certifications in pro apps was a "reward" when it's supposed to be part of your job! We lost potential with more professional users and have become known as a "retirees" club. It's becoming mundane! Also, retail hours in general just suck but even more so when it's 9 hour days. Good luck EVER having a work/life balance and kiss the family goodbye. Mentally draining and feel like my brain is going to mush as the repetitive same questions from customers becomes tiring.
