I worked at Apple

Pros

Benefits and time off. The benefits are very good. So is the time off and vacations. I also think there is good work life balance. California laws allow for great benefits. Steve Jobs is revered at the company. Is seems to be a great leader and everyone is excited about the products. Employee discounts on products are a plus too.

Cons

Stucture needed for a growing company. As the organization get bigger, the organization will need to change how they go to market and the processes that the organization employs. The organization opposes this becauses it changes the company culture, but there is a way to balance maintaining the culture with structure needed for a growing organization.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Change is needed for a growing organization.

    Pros

    Fun environment, good training, nice people, excellent discount. Company always seemed to care for it's employees, even at a retail level. Low turnover and company maintains high goals for moving people from Retail to Corporate.

    Cons

    No commission, dealing with the "iPhone public." Lot of talk of promotions, but certain lower-level management was generally slow to act. Long hours sometimes, but company was never stingy about overtime pay (all depending on your store manager).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reward top selling employees more frequently. If someone can sell more than $10k/day including top metrics (at a moderately-busy store), Apple should up the perks slightly. However, most employees are hired as Mac Specialists first (sales) with the promise of moving into other positions (Genius, Creative, etc). However, those who show strength in sales are less likely to get "promoted" into those other positions because management doesn't want to take them off the floor. But if you don't sell well, you also wont get promoted either. Damned if you do, damned if you don't.
