I worked at Apple full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Really awesome coworkers, good pay, fast-paced environment with great benefits (if you're full-time, not just working full-time hours), looks good on your resume, and opens a lot of doors if you know how to play your cards right and find whose ass to kiss.

Cons

Management is all over the place. It started out being about the customer experience, and then it became more about the numbers and sales. If you can't get numbers in sales, don't expect to get anywhere if you're working retail, regardless of what position you want. They only care about getting people in and out with the most expensive stuff. Oh, and they definitely don't care about you or how you express yourself. Be prepared to groom yourself to the standards they expect, even though the company is so-called "accepting of diversity."

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Give employees CONSTRUCTIVE criticism when they are seeking improvement or promotion. It does not help to be told "no" without "why."

    I have been working at Apple

    Pros

    Lots of prose from health benefits to 401k and more plus good pay.

    Cons

    They try to work you tell you drop then find a new person to fill your place. Some grate management and some vary bad ones that hire more like them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work harder to find more personable managers that care about the customer and the employes. I found a lot of managers had an ego a mile long.
