    Pros

    When you work for Apple, you are working with a group of people that are absolutely amazing. Great customer focus, intelligent, driven, communicative...it's just awesome. The leadership team is great, when they have the time to provide direction.

    Cons

    Time. It's simply near-impossible to strategize with your team, develop yourself with leadership, and to review your interactions.

    There is a culture of pulling leadership from external sources, so much so that it causes you to think that it's impossible to grow with the company.

    Advice to Management

    There needs to be intermediary paths of growth for positions such as Genius/Expert/Creative. You have brilliant and talented people in these positions, but they grow complacent and lose the passion for the company since they essentially get "stuck" in this position. This leads to decreased job satisfaction and causes us to look elsewhere for other opportunities. If the credo really does put the internal customer at the heart and soul, please live up to this giving us the opportunity to stay with the company. Despite how much management talks about it, these are NOT career positions.

  2. Amazing company with great values
