    Pros

    Amazing benefits for employees; full health and dental plans, great stock options, discounts on hundreds of products and services.
    Apple encourages you to pursue hobbies and interests and will even contribute towards any classes or memberships (including gym memberships).
    Discounts on their products too is also a great benefit.

    Cons

    Days are often very long and draining and sometimes that can mean a lack of variety. Particularly with the technical roles, days can be quite long and monotonous, particularly during high velocity days.

    Advice to Management

    Avoid changing the 'focus' of the day/week/month. Each week the focus changes and new plans are put in place, but these are often very short lived.

    Pros

    I worked with a great team and customers also, they were interesting people all round so when busy it was a satisfying day. Flexible on work hours.

    Cons

    Our store was in a shopping mall which can feel a little unreal with no daylight but not something totally Apple related.

    Advice to Management

    I was lucky to have one of the companies best retail managers who lead from example with a smile, if all managers could do that it would help morale even more. I'd like to see the company reassess their sustainability to the environment and had concerns about the welfare of some of their international manufacturing companies employees.
