I have been working at Apple full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Benefits such as health, dental, and vision insurance. WageWorks commuter card, bike subsidies, numerous third party product discounts, and of course Apple product discounts as well.

An amazing team of talented and friendly employees who are amazing to work with.

Open communication is always encouraged and management is usually willing to listen to complaints and suggestions from employees.

Cons

Management is often times clumsy in their duties. Schedules do not get completed on time, vacations or time off can easily get rejected, managers are not always there when you need them. They are constantly changing role as to their responsibilities and the teams they manage. Most managers are not promoted internally, but rather recruited from other stores.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Give us the hours we ask for. Give those employees asking for full-time, full-time positions. Hire more people to make up for the number of employees who leave and stop being stingy with overtime. I know this is handed down from corporate, but you have to talk back because corporate ca'nt see what's going on in the store, management can.

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

    Pros

    Throughly enjoy working with such smart people, especially for a company that's always on the cutting edge of technology. Working for a company that so many people aspire is inspirational. There benefits are outstanding and will probably not find another company that comes close to covering my family like Apple.

    Cons

    Many managers do not allow you room to grow. Very process driven, without room to understand different prospectives. The company overall monitors finances with a very critical eye.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't be so eager to high from outside the company, for internal employees enjoy getting moved around sometimes.
