    I have been working at Apple full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    We work with geniuses - in every department, We create innovative products that thrill our customers and create new product categories - who else can say that?

    Cons

    ZERO ZERO ZERO work/life balance. Execs have been saying for YEARS that they understand and will make it better. But in actuality, it gets worse every year! It is obviously top management LIP SERVICE because if they meant it, they could fix it tomorrow. They have hundreds of BILLIONS in the bank. If they REALLY cared about employee work/life balance, they could bring aboard the right number of folks to make that issue dissolve. Sick of hearing the lies. Just don't lie about wanting to fix it, when they clearly DON'T care

    I have been working at Apple (More than a year)

    Pros

    The position is at home. The company is AMAZING. There are limitless advancement opportunities. You work with some very cool people and the leadership cares about your development. You may get coaching but you never get battered or belittled. The pay is decent and the benefits include, 401(k) match, stock purchase options, product discounts and discounts on services across many different areas, education assistance, child care assistance, paid vacation, sick time and other time off options, health club Reimbursment or bike cost set off. You get 1.5 time for OT and it's pretty much unlimited as long as you don't exceed 12 hours in a day or 59 total in a week.

    Cons

    The schedule changes every 90 days and you have to bid for your shifts so you never know what you are going to get. This makes it extremely hard to plan your life to far in advance. You are also pretty much assured to work a Saturday or Sunday.

    Advice to Management

    The management consists of a team manager and their area manager. Meetings are held over video and chat. They are supportive of individual development and help you to reach your goal. Management will challenge you if you want to advance but it's always in the spirit of making you better to prepare you for the next role.

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

    Pros

    Working at Apple means that the things you work on get into the hands of hundreds of millions of people, literally. It's a lot of pressure to get things right and drives one to do the best work of their lives. 2+ years later I'm still blown away by the talent and creativity of people I work with.

    Cons

    It's a lot of work, teams are usually strapped for resources and under pressure to deliver on strict timelines leading to high stress and long hours at certain times during the year.

    Advice to Management

    Keep fighting for "what's right". Renewable energy, civil liberties, working condition, everything. I couldn't be prouder of that aspect of the company, in the end it's about a lot more than profits and earnings.

    I have been working at Apple part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Company shares admirable values such as diversity, inclusivity, truly cares about their employees. Great benefits, particularly if you work in San Francisco. Depending on the store, management is generally very accommodating to student schedules.

    Cons

    As a specialist, the work can get mentally and emotionally draining because it is still retail and apple is the type of company that brings in all types of customers so you'll be dealing with a range of different people on a regular basis.

    Pros

    Dynamic work environment with changing technology solutions and some of the best people to work with. Great benefits ranging from healthcare to stock purchase plan.

    Cons

    Upward mobility is a challenge with no clear personal development path. Was to get caught in the monotony of the job.

    Advice to Management

    Create clear paths to personal development.

    I worked at Apple part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Work from home in your pajamas
    - Flexible hours
    - Great pay for a college student
    - Full-time benefits (medical, dental, and vision insurance plus more)

    Cons

    - Highly dependent on customer reviews : Sometimes you receive the bad reviews that were even meant for you due to call transfers!
    - No big incentives on staying past the one year contract

    Advice to Management

    Continue talking and meeting with your College Advisors; take feedback on the improvements that they would like to see within the program as this will increase the retainment rate per year. Otherwise, good job.
