    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Apple is great to build experience with sales.
    Encouraging management.
    Clearly articulated goals.
    Amazing onboarding and training program.
    Discounts.
    Camaraderie amongst co-workers.
    Engaging with customers and helping them learn something new.

    Cons

    Little room for growth. Don't expect to start as a specialist and move to genius. They're two different worlds according to management.
    Often found that although I was better at helping/repairing software/hardware issues, got stuck in specialist position and told to focus on sales.
    You end up selling $10k+ a day with no commission.
