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 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.

    I have been working at Apple full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Job security, benefits and convenient. They hire anyone which could be a con but it is nice to be a graduate with an Art Degree and have a job.

    Cons

    If your not a couch potato that has no life other than video games then this is the perfect job for you. If your someone that wants a life outside of work than this is not for you. Vacation please, you get time off but don't expect to be able to use the time, cause they will tell you no for some reason.

    Advice to Management

    Don't make us feel like we are going to lose our job because one out of one hundred people give you a dissatisfied survey. Things happen and you can't please everyone.
