    I worked at Apple part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Working at Apple is a very unique experience. There are certain things that are expected of you but you'd find that in any customer facing job. You get autonomy and the chance to direct your own growth path within the company. The people here care about you and make it very easy to care about them.

    Cons

    The worst part of working for Apple Retail is the customers, sounds ridiculous but it's true. Extreme levels of patience are definitely required.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember your people, metrics only tell you so much.

    I worked at Apple full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Very challenging environment, where you might impact millions of people, do great things and "change the world" in your own little way. You'll learn very valuable lessons in how a big company is still trying to operate as a startup

    Cons

    Secrecy is a killer, the more you give to the job the more is expected from you. no chance of life balance here. Ever wondered why Google always makes the the top ten of the best companies to work for but Apple never get even close? well there is a reason...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employees are your best asset, cultivate that relationship and respect them.
