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

    Pros

    Strong company culture
    Common vision and alliance around priorities
    Good benefits
    Brand recognition

    Cons

    Too much beating around the bush
    Beauracracy
    Pay and earning potential

    Advice to Management

    Store leadership needs to be tightened up. There are several people that are clearly there for the wrong reasons and there are others that truly are about the brand. It's important to figure out how much you care early on because the culture can be overwhelming for some. At times, working at apple seems removed from reality. There is not enough "real world" training that can be easily applied from a retail customer service position. Certain competencies are important to understand and be aware of but most companies are not concerned with how your peer relationships are or how you manage vision and purpose. They care about results and that's what's missing from a career at Apple retail.

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

    Pros

    Apple cares about their employees. Great perks. Discounts on products. You'll make a ton of friends if you want to.

    Some managers come from Best Buy and try to biting their culture with them. They also try to bring strategies from other stores they've worked.
