Fast paced environment with great coworkers & crappy management - most of the time.

Former Employee - Apple Family Room Specialist in Miami, FL

I worked at Apple full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

• Great Benefits
• Get to work with some of the greatest minds in the industry
• Work with purpose
• Unveil new technology and educate customers on how it can improve their lives

Cons

• Upper management is close minded
• Employees are under valued
• Company is one sided when reporting misconduct from Management (sides with management)
• Doesn't matter how long you've worked there; everyone's expendable
• Long hours

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Value your employees more and listen to them more. Happy employees = happy customers. And stop hiring the rejects from Gateway, BestBuy & CompUSA; those business' clearly didn't work out for very long. Don't infect yourselves with inferiority.

    I worked at Apple full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    People focused, innovative, exciting and cutting edge. Company values and culture are exactly what you would expect from Apple Computer. Great pay and wonderful benefits.

    Cons

    Extremely fast paced, and still retail at the end of the day. You will have goals to meet, most of your day will be spent on your feet, hours can be long and tiring. Shake ups in leadership, more recently, have resulted in a dip in company culture.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide clearer direction and a more focused outline for employee career pathing and personal growth. Communicate openly.

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

    Pros

    For a retail position, compensation and benefits were solid. Lots of good training and many opportunities for temporary assignments around the company. Apple goes out of their way to seek out talented individuals who are interesting, engaging and usually fun to work with. Products speak for themselves.

    Cons

    Work/Life balance can be terrible. Even for a retail specialist, leadership constantly asked people to come in early/stay late, work days off, etc, especially around product launches. Our leadership team was increasingly difficult to satisfy - their drive for results was bordering on maniacal, which took a lot of the Apple magic away from our store and ultimately burned out a lot of their top talent.
