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

    Pros

    Great people. People for the most part generally care about customers needs and each other. Great opportunity for a younger person (25 and younger) looking for a career.

    Cons

    The cool aid is sometimes hard to swallow, even for the most die hard Apple fans. Not a place for someone with a lot of experience unless you are willing to unlearn everything you've learned before.


  2. "Fun and delight with our customers, but a struggle for the people within."

    I have been working at Apple full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The experience of "enriching lives" is what makes this job so much fun. Every customer who visits us gives us an opportunity to surprise and delight them beyond imagine, regardless of whether they are completely new to the products and services or if their fourteenth Mac is crashing in flames. We can't always work magic, but when all the gears turn together amazing things happen. We are given a lot of flexibility to "get to yes" and make things possible where it may not be at other retailers.

    Cons

    It's retail, so be prepared to navigate an ever-shifting field of politics and drama to get anywhere in the company. Various training initiatives that spark up to address immediate need and then phase off once short-term goals are met. The impression that management truly cares about growth and development, and will dangle carrots that lead to uncertain outcomes for creating and navigating a career at Apple.

    Advice to Management

    Value your people and their contributions, and their desires to grow and explore. You have a chance to revolutionize not just the lives of our customers, but also the way business is done.
