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

Pros

Open to new ideas and let you run with the ball when needed. Certain groups are very open to contact between each other which grows new ideas.

Cons

Lower level jobs are usually micro managed which can be difficult for some

    I worked at Apple full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    I was a Genius for about a year. There was a lot to love about the job - good pay, flexible hours (I loved working night shifts), (mostly) good people, and good discounts. I loved being able to fix computers for hours a day, and it felt great to help people solve their problems.

    Cons

    The particular store I worked at had very poor management. I was eventually fired even though I had documented evidence of my coworkers harassing me and deliberately trying to get me fired. The manager who fired me refused to transfer me to another store. HR wouldn't reconsider the termination, even after directly explaining the harassment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The HR rep who took my termination case was completely incompetent. She had no sense of empathy for my situation, and when I told her verbatim some of the inappropriate things that had been said to me during my employment, she told me "I wasn't there, so I can't comment on that". The company needs better human resources people who understand that their job isn't just protecting the reputation of the company.
