    Pros

    Lots of paid training and management that cares about your development as a person. Great benefits and vacation package and discounts on hardware and software. Training is a top priorty and is worked into our schedule.

    Cons

    In a retail position the hours are bad. It is a physically demanding job as you are on your feet all day. And the downside of working for a company who cares is customers can really try to get all they can out of you even when you go above and beyond.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more employees at a higher rate of pay so you will have less turnover and more competency. Talk more with all emplyees not just the ones that complain the loudest.

    Pros

    Apple makes really great products - being a part of that is rewarding in and of itself. Now that the company is doing so well, we're really an 800 lb. gorilla when it comes to vendor relationships - it's great to have other companies bending over backwards to get your business.

    Cons

    Sometimes even annual performance reviews get missed - that means not a lot of feedback about career growth or professional development. If you have upwardly mobile aspirations, Apple is probably not going to help you out very much. Sometimes you'll feel like you can't get the information you need to do your job.

    Advice to Management

    Give up on this unit tracking garbage. It doesn't solve the problem you're trying to solve, and it makes everybody's job harder.
