    Pros

    You work with the latest and greatest in electronics. You get to meet a diverse group of people that work within your store and who regularly shop at your store. You are able to help make people's lives better through sharing knowledge. You learn more about Macs and computers through your day to day interactions with colleagues and customers than you would in a lifetime of reading blog posts and how-to manuals.

    Cons

    With the growth of Apple Retail, Apple, like most retail companies, wants to hire hundreds of employees all at low part-time hours. That way, they can filter turnover easily while not extending valuable benefits to all or most of its employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to who is really leading the store! Promote the leaders within your store to management positions, don't automatically assume someone is wonderful for your store just because they were an assistant manager at xyz retailer.

    Truly innovative company where individual contributions count

    Pros

    One of the most interesting companies to work at in the Valley. Individual contributions count. Cool hardware products, great software products, smart people, fantastic stock price ;-). Innovation is something that we actually do, rather than just talk about. Plenty of opportunity to work on different products and get some job variation.

    Cons

    Benefits good, but not as good as they could be. The product secrecy gets to some people. Insufficient stock compensation for lower-grade employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be less paranoid about secrecy i.e. trust your employees with more information rather than less. Give more stock to lower-grade employees and engineers in general.
