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

Pros

The people there are amazing and it is really easy to make friends. You find that you fall into a niche somewhere within the store. You never have to work overnight, and there is always a lot of free food

Cons

It's still a retail company, and even though they like to lure you in with the "We're different than other companies, we don't have a lot of levels to go through" you still have to deal with all the corparate nonsense that goes along with it - Example: I loved working there, was a hard worker and ended up clocking in 1 minute late one day. That added to a couple days I'd taken off earlier in the year ended up with me having to go into review and ultimately being let go.

Advice to Management

Don't pretend to be friends. You either are or are not, but you are still a manager and you need to do your job.
