    I worked at Apple part-time

    Pros

    Nice diverse work staff, thorough training, and I could work part-time during school. Relatively decent flexibility, except you have to work every weekend. If you want to take a weekend off expect to apply a couple months in advance and will probably be denied.

    Cons

    Can be stressful during holidays, other times of the year are fine.

    Advice to Management

    Some managers were amazing and fair, others felt like they held personal grudges against employees or incredibly high expectations vs. reality or had favorites.

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

    Pros

    Overall great work environment. Management is very encouraging and truly want for you to succeed as an individual whether thats with Apple or outside of Apple

    Cons

    Work/Life balance is sometimes difficult to keep. Apple retail management is always changing and that makes it hard to remain connected and build strong relationships with you leadership. For example they separate all the employees into groups and assign a single manager to oversee the development of that group. So if you so happen to get a manager who's focused on his own job and is very busy, then you're pretty much left to fend for yourself.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to build the culture of Apple and keep the outlook positive. However don't forget to value the internal customer as much as if not more than the external.
