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

Pros

Good experience, looks good on resume, better pay than most college jobs, benefits, work from home

Cons

Very little time to relax, non stop calls, deal with angry customers, stressful situations

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Once school started the team started to get distant and no longer felt like a team environment. Find a way team members can interact and stay close together during the school year.

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

    Pros

    This is a great job if you are looking to start out or in college. My review is strictly for retail so I can't speak for corporate. The benefits are fantastic and the pay is decent

    Cons

    You pretty much hit a ceiling once you've been here long enough. There are so many retail employees and so little room in upper management. I have know a few to move up but it is very difficult.

    I have been working at Apple full-time (more than 10 years)

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.
