    Biggest con is the work life balance - but it's a retail job so that's to be expected with the hours and the company has some measures in place with scheduling options to try and help out just not a perfect system

      Pros

      Good Benefits Not the worst way to spend your day Great coworkers

      Cons

      No chance for career progression Management doesn't actually care, they're just really good at pretending to cared Terrible work/life balance As a company, there is no real strategy or direction anymore

      Advice to Management

      They need to stop trying to con employees into conning customers. There was a time when the company had a mission to help humanity and make lives better. They're asking those same people to become the pushy, stingy, liars that worked at cell phone shops and pump as much money out of customers as possible.

      I have been working at Apple full-time for more than 3 years

      Pros

      Great employees to work with, easy communications between groups, excellent healthcare plan, good food in cafes (but still have to pay), good salaries.

      Cons

      Apple has a lot of departments and they don't all work the same way, so these comments apply to my own group (Customer Systems), not necessarily the company at large. Web tech is de-valued relative to mobile, modern standards and practices for front end are not valued highly. Generally, if you're not working on customer facing content, UI polish and performance is not prioritized. Confusing mish-mash of design standards....
