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

Pros

This is generally a great place to work, but keep it in perspective. It's retail, not everyone's dreamland. Working with customer's was entertaining and sometimes challenging. Not to mention being surrounded by Apple nerds, which I consider fun.

Cons

Retail hours suck, there is no way around that. Also, the quality of management fluctuates significantly which can lead to significant frustration.

Advice to Management

Take more time to evaluate individual's contributions and reward those who work hard, and get rid of those who don't.

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

    Pros

    Company is not going anywhere, it will last another 10 years for sure. Employee discounts on some cool products. Other employees are great to work with.

    Cons

    Sometimes powerless to change anything. Lots of work, it's still a rapidly growing company.

    Advice to Management

    Lower managers are always out to cover their asses and are afraid to make tough decisions. You also don't see the bottom managers push back or know when to say no.

    Pros

    Strong corporate culture, lots of perks, events, and other means of breaking up the work day.

    Cons

    Difficult to network cross-departments unless your position allows for it easily. Little emphasis on career and personal development beyond where you are right here, right now.

    Advice to Management

    Provide easier access to training.
