I have been working at Apple as a contractor for more than a year

Pros

Freedom, nice management, great product. Rewarding some how

Cons

Contractors are second class citizens, secret promotions, secrets, secrets secrets. I felt like I was onyl there because the computers would not be able to do it on their own.

Felt not valuable

    Current Employee - Business Manager

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

    Pros

    You will not find many companies were the team that you work with are the best of all other teams. It really is the Yale or Harvard of employes. The focus on training and development and care about the employes.

    Cons

    They are still figuring out the "Business Manager" Position. Running an entire business with only one business specialist. Does not put you in the best place to be successful. You will at times be a highly paid sales person vs. a true manager/Leader. Currently for Leaders you are limited to close to 40 hours a week. Normally that sounds great but you are still required to accomplish everything needed in that time. You consistently have to leave things undone and the stress can be heavy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The Store Leader is the only Salary position in the store. So be prepared to clock in and out everyday. You will learn an incredible amount in a very short time. The joke is working for Apple feels like dog years. You will pay the toll on your mind and body. They do a lot of things different but when it really comes down to it they still are corporate with things that will still frustrate.

    I have been working at Apple full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Best company I ever worked for.
    Very innovative, industry leaders.. both for the product as well as services around the product.

    Cons

    The company just blew up in a the last couple years, a lot of people left.
    Politics have taken over the company, we need to go back to making great products.
    Opportunity to grow upwards is limited since its a very flat organization.
    Bad Work/ Personal Life balance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We need to focus on the product and not
    Give employees who perform well a chance to grow.
