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

Pros

Apple hires only the best people, and it's very refreshing to work with smart and kind people regularly. Being that Apple Retail is the most financially successful retail establishment per square foot, you know they are doing something right. They are very customer focused and have many good practices in which employees are trained. They constantly point employees towards the customers needs, and bend over backwards for each and every customer.

Cons

Working at Apple Retail is a great part time job to have during college, or during another demanding life stage. However; it's a poor choice for someone interested in career advancement. Very rarely do employees get selected for any cooperate positions, and it doesn't take long for employees to realize they have reached a wall. The very nature of retail demands employees be always available to work, and the system rarely supports breaks from work longer than one day at any given time. Your schedule is always staggered, and you feel like you are always working. Apple Retail attempts to create an environment in which employees are able to innovate and grow, but that doesn't end up to be the reality. The truth is that at the end of the day it's much like any other retail establishment. Customers have needs, and Apple Retail cannot afford to have you doing anything else but helping customers each moment of the day. If you are interested in making a career move, Apple Retail might not be the best decision.

    Pros

    Exciting work, challenging projects, motivating atmosphere. constantly moving forward, fast-paced, surrounded by smart peers and brilliant engineers. Those here have a passion for what they are doing.

    Cons

    Establishing a life/work balance of your own. There is always more to be done, finding this balance for oneself - though in essence one is always the master of their own fate.
