    Pros

    love the atmosphere... they made it very easy to work there

    Cons

    when i tried to transfer store to the providence place mall they just gave me an extremely hard time. it was very aggravating because i did not do anything to lose my job. they just did not like me for some odd reason. overall my worst experience about apple was practicaly begging for my job even though i already had a job. they people that stripped me of my job over at providence place mall should be fired because they had no reason to do so.

    I have been working at Apple full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Being part of big Apple

    Cons

    Old tools and processes, Work-Lifr Balance is very poor. Consultants, QA and Site Ops are blamed for everything that goes wrong with product. Upper management does not understand modern approaches (Scrum/Agile, Continues Integration, Continues Deployment, etc). People get yelled when production issues are found and blames usually flows downhill until the next scape goat is found and dealt with.

    There is no learning from previous mistakes, so the cycle will repeat itself again and again. If you really know your job and willing to share how to improve things - do not join Apple. You expirience is not welcomed there and your proposals will not be heard or implemented. Apple expects everyone to comply and mold. Many people there work for years and completely missed modern advance in technology and processes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop saying: "this is Apple and this is the way we have always done things". Change culture to foster collaboration and learning.
