    I have been working at Apple full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Being the forefront of technology, being part of company who continues to innovate and push the envelope of personal computers. Also being part of a company that makes products that bring joy to many people, including myself. Having a sense of pride when new products are introduced, and being able to show people how it works.

    Cons

    Working at the retail level of Apple, can be extremely stressful. It's extremely difficult when the management team isn't on the same page, it can feel like your pushed to many different directions. I loved my first store, but moving to a new city the markets can range from good to worse. It really depends on the store management. If the store leader has a good head on their shoulders, the store will be a great experience for the employees and the customers. If the store leader is unorganized and unwilling to work together, it will be a very hard relationship for both the employee and the customers.

    Advice to Management

    Be open to new ideas, trust your team members. Don't be afraid to take advice from co-workers that have been around longer then you have. They have lots of knowledge that can help you and the team succeeded.

    I worked at Apple full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Apple has great benefits, including the Employee Stock Purchase Program, awesome health care, regular Employee Enrichment events (beer bashes, etc.), and a relaxed atmosphere with no dress code… If you excel in your position, it is normal (almost expected) that you will be able to move to a higher position in an area that interests you. The management staff is really good, as is the management style of Apple in general.

    Cons

    Depending on which building you work in, you may or may not have easy access to [A] the cafeteria, [B] all of the events. Also, for hourly employees, you may end up getting a shift that is less than desirable now and then… but shift cycles rotate often enough that you won't usually get stuck with a bad one for too long, and management is very fair about working with people to get them their top choices.
