I worked at Apple full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Great place to work! Very good work ethics. Things move too fast to waste time with drama or people who don't contribute… they get fired fast.
From an IT standpoint, you get 100% control of your own system(s)!

Cons

Poor work/life balance. Employee discounts are less than desirable. Because working for Apple is considered "it's own reward" there is a tendency to pay on the lower side of the spectrum. Unfortunately applicants will take the below industry rates just to be at apple.

Advice to Management

Never be afraid to say "no".

    I worked at Apple full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Basically was life training; the varied interactions (and customers) teach you how to approach lots of different situations. You might become more outgoing as a result of working there. You also get the opportunity to learn a ton about technology. Worth it if you are willing to put the time in.

    Cons

    Lots of rules, some of which can be broken, but unclear which. There is a bit of a glass ceiling - it can be hard to move up. And there is a lot of ambiguity; sometimes it's not entirely clear what is actually expected of your performance vis a vis with what management is saying.

    Advice to Management

    Try to be consistent in what you are communicating to staff.

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

    Pros

    Fun, good discounts, good people, great perks. There was opportunity to grow and visit Cupertino for certification, but I only wanted part-time work. Plenty of free software, discounts on products from third-parties, and even cellphone service.

    Cons

    Pay could have been better, but I was only looking for part-time work. The store was located inside a mall, so you're basically a mall employee, just like the sales folks at the Gap or Brookstone. Parking at the mall was pretty bad and not safe at night.

    Advice to Management

    Grow the good people and get rid of the slackers.
