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

Pros

Working at Apple truly does not feel like working at all. You are with people that truly love to be there and do not drag their feet in to work everyday. That feeling you get when spending time with family during a fun occasion or with friends at a party...this is what it feels like to work for and at Apple.

Cons

I have nothing bad to say about working for this fantastic company.

Advice to Management

It's always good to speak to your team if they are in a rutt. Don't direct them on what to do...ask them how you can help them through it.

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

    Pros

    Great coworkers with a wide range of backgrounds and experience. Possibility to gain insight into how a large and hugely successful retail organisation is built, specifically with the way in which Apple runs its business as it is considerably different in approach to many other high street retailers. Good advancement up to a point if you are willing to play the corporate game. Great up to a certain point but then if you really want to do anything beyond Retail you have to leave, which culminates in Apple losing their most promising staff.

    Cons

    Once you reach a certain level within the Retail side there is little further training or progression beyond possible management positions and even these are seldom promoted from within the staff with outside hires being the norm. Poor salary with little increases for long service meaning you are stuck in an underpaid job with no possibility for progression.

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring outside managers from other retail stores. New management does not understand the attitude of general Apple staff which is to do a good job in their own way, not taking well to micromanagement. While this may have worked at other Retail stores this does not work at Apple and leads to confrontation between management and staff that could otherwise be avoided.
