Pros

Best retail job you can ask for. Great benefits, good pay, better culture than most. Paid vacation for full-time.

Cons

Lots of politics in the workplace, and can be a little cultish at times. Have to be willing to drink the koolaid.

Advice to Management

A lot of favoritism is present in most stores.

    Pros

    -The stock purchase plan has been rewarding. -My co-workers tend to be very high quality. The average tenure is much longer here than at other companies so I tend to think most of the employees are satisfied. -The onsite caffe is great and serves healthy fare. -Employee perks are numerous and generous. (beer bashes, BBQ cookoffs, etc.)

    Cons

    -Managers tend to "manage up". -Lots of trendy business lingo without a lot of substance in some of them. -The company can be greedy. Compensation plans change to drastically reduce employee income when it suits them. -Culture is changing since Steve Jobs is gone

    Advice to Management

    Manage your employees instead of managing your spreadsheet. Build tools that help not only you but your employees do their jobs more effectively. Remember that other companies envy your talent pool.

    Pros

    Good Company to work for innovative, leading edge in consumer electronics, has methodologies to follow.

    Cons

    depending on the current administration at your job locations, you are either in and good up the ladder or put aside because your management is not favoring you at the moment. Everything is done by consensus. If one person out of 19 does not feel you are qualified for the job or promotion, you will get black balled. I've seen it too many times.

    Advice to Management

    Get a third party opinion ,outside of the small mgmt click that ends up making all the decisions, not necessarily for the right reasons. Sometimes doing the right thing is not as important as following the flock.
