    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 (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.

    Pros

    Fun work environment. Very friendly people. Comfortable relaxed. No pressure for sales goals. Management is very relaxed and don't pressure you.

    Cons

    There really isn't anything negative to say about the company. Aside from the fact they make you feel as they give you more than what they do and you should be greatful.

    Advice to Management

    Pros

    Exceptionally accommodating for different employee needs. Great job security. Able to grow and move up. Close connections with peers. Team support daily.

    Cons

    Little turn over, which could be good or bad, I've been part time for over a year. Customers will challenge you in the technical Specialist role. Easy burn out.

    Advice to Management

    Stay open minded and continue to connect with staff regularly.

    Pros

    Great support and advancement opportunity .. terrific benefits .. hours are great .. save so much money working from home.

    Cons

    Training could be changed to make it easier for people that learn by doing ... prescription insurance could be better ... it can be hard not to have the connection with co-workers .. but if you put the effort into connecting it can happen!

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

    Pros

    Great benefits. Best part-time job for college student. Pay will be higher than any other retail establishment, however it is retail.

    Cons

    Management plays favorites when it comes to promotional opportunities. Often, the most qualified person is not promoted to a job because they are not best friends with a manager. Saw many full-timers who are trying to support a family (thus seeking a new job promotion) not get the job.

    Because it's retail, you have to work 2 out of 3 weekend days (Friday, Saturday, Sunday) but often you do not have a say to which of the 3 days.

    If you cannot handle entitled customers, don't work for the company. Not necessarily a con of the company, but Apple customers are some of the most difficult to provide service to.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to look outside of the "clicks" when promoting people to new positions. Not everyone goes to work to socialize and make friends.
