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

Pros

It's a fun place to work, the culture is entrepreneurial and everyone has a sense of mission. I definitely enjoyed working in retail versus the other division e.g. Apple Online and Apple Enterprise.

Cons

Politics at the center many times limits the speed of implementation and change. There's way to may "career employees" that coast and milk their tenure at Apple.

Advice to Management

Try building more startups within Apple like what Cypress Semiconductor did. This will allow Apple to continue to innovate and still be a big company.

    I have been working at Apple full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits, good pay, and the people tend to be engaging and dynamic.

    Cons

    Long hours, managers never get to take the 15 minute breaks that the associates get, often the pace and workload is overwhelming. Very few development or training opportunities for the managers. Customer expectations of getting free replacements becomes exhausting.

    Advice to Management

    Give some additional support and training to the leadership teams in the stores.
