I have been working at Apple full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Apple is a very innovative, progressive company..however, for as large as they are, they are a strictly revenue driven company, not sales driven...

Cons

Employees are expected to perform/exceed all expectations without a platform for higher earnings capacity...Apple historically doesn't pay as well as competitors...

    I worked at Apple full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Size. Apple is run like a bunch of small companies (work groups). When your job gets old and boring - and they all eventually do - it is easy to move within the company to get a fresh outlook without having to change employers completely. Likewise, if you need to stretch or improve your skill set, there are plenty of opportunities for advancement.

    Cons

    There is no room for mediocracy at Apple. If you're not an "A" performer, it will become apparent all too soon and you'll be down the road at Google.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the spirit alive.

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

    Pros

    The people that worked there were the most positive, helpful, and amazing people I have ever met.
    Fun place to work, always new and challenging things to learn and do. Management always helps if you ask, and are willing to help you grow.

    Cons

    Just like any retail job you have to put up with dealing with crazy pissed off people sometimes, which sucks. Scheduling sucks sometimes since nights and weekends are always on the schedule. I would sometimes work till close at 11pm and have to be right back at 8am the very next day. That's the reason i left because the schedules were terrible.

    Advice to Management

    The only thing i would say is improve on the scheduling, but I'm sure its hard considering i worked at a Apple store that had 100 people on the staff.
