Cons

Pay could be a lot better. Review system could use some improvement.

    I worked at Apple full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Fantastic facilities, top notch in terms of good working environment and the culture of the company embraces people of all types.

    Cons

    Like many corporations, Apple Retail makes the mistake of confusing Management with Leadership. Employees who have no business being placed in a leadership roll are often promoted because they are good employees and have to learn how to lead in the store the hard way, sometimes creating difficulty for the teams they are supposed to be leading.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If it hasn't been done already, the "leadership" and "team-building" training that was in place as of May 2011 needs to be done away with and a real leadership training system needs to be implemented. The "training program" that was in use at the time was complex, confusing, and made many assumptions about the person going through the training that weren't true for all people.

    I worked at Apple as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    Very smart and great co-workers, a stimulating work environment, and facilities designed to help you work. I found Apple to be an exciting place to work and recommend it without reservation.

    Cons

    The only con was that the job wasn't permanent! It would also be nice if contractors had access to Apple's health care benefits.
