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

    Pros

    Challenging environment, chance for great interface with customers, awesome brand and product line to represent.

    Cons

    Very demanding learning curve for a 'retail job'.
    Low pay for level of expertise and involvement required to do job adequately.

    Advice to Management

    Promote from within more.
    Profit sharing for all store employees based on a 'store wide' basis should be implemented. So if store is profitable beyond a certain metric, all employees should receive a bonus or share of the profit.

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

    Pros

    Really great products to work on, exciting opportunities and smart interesting people to work with. There is a strong culture of focusing on the end-user experience and not irrationally obsessing with features/technology.

    Cons

    It's a big company, so there are the general the rules and bureaucracy you don't have at, say, a start-up. There is a strong Apple-focused culture and loyalty which becomes both a strength and a weakness.
