Pros

a company that everyone loves: the world will cheer you just because you wear that badge
great products, with a focus on perfection - you are constantly pushed to do better
a dynamic work environment: everyone's contributions are valued

Cons

long work hours, probably too long at times
the focus on perfection can become stressful when deadlines approach
secrecy all around the place: you can know a lot about what goes on in your group, but anything beyond that is a mystery

    Pros

    Discount. The Pay is great for retail. Vacation time. Ability to try out new product before anyone else. Free software.

    Cons

    At first it was amazing. Now its turned into the GAP. it is retail and i understand that but make it fun again. don't concentrate on numbers give employees development help them grow ... let us wear flip flops n have a lot of earrings. bring the old apple back.

    Advice to Management

    Forget about MobileMe one 2 one and apple care.. each of these will sell if the customer needs. make sure every employee leads. send them to apple corporate no matter the cost it is worth it to build up and give them a sense of pride. offer a proper exchange into apple corporate. Give your employees incentive to move to corporate and hire more of them. Apples stopped growing because you are taking people from microsoft and other companies that know nothing of the ideologies that once made apple amazing..
