    I worked at Apple part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Apple delivers amazing products to its customers (I was an Apple fangirl long before I started working for them). That is the biggest pro. Job wise, benefits were good, as was the 25% off employee discount (and the $500 off computer or iPad every three years). Flexible schedules for students.

    Cons

    As an At Home Advisor the work day got pretty boring as your whole day was spent answering phone calls for the same product. Difficult to take time off (at least my manager wouldn't allow us to take time off, even unpaid, if we didn't have the vacation time), which seemed ridiculous considering it was an hourly part-time position. This particular position caused lots of stress to myself as well as others on my team.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My particular At Home Advisor Manager was very inexperienced (it was her first time as a team manager). I would recommend that a first time manager has a "coach" that is involved just as much during their first year so that things run smoother. Or increase team sizes and give each team multiple managers of varied experience.

    I have been working at Apple

    Pros

    Ability to work on problems related to high traffic websites

    Cons

    Too many levels of management and it takes a long time to come to decisions due to lack of understanding of the systems in place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more open about future plans and provide solid direction
