I worked at Apple full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

For a retail position, compensation and benefits were solid. Lots of good training and many opportunities for temporary assignments around the company. Apple goes out of their way to seek out talented individuals who are interesting, engaging and usually fun to work with. Products speak for themselves.

Cons

Work/Life balance can be terrible. Even for a retail specialist, leadership constantly asked people to come in early/stay late, work days off, etc, especially around product launches. Our leadership team was increasingly difficult to satisfy - their drive for results was bordering on maniacal, which took a lot of the Apple magic away from our store and ultimately burned out a lot of their top talent.

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

    Pros

    The people. The energy. Great management team. When I was in the college based team... you really felt the culture and the hunger from all of the advisors.

    Cons

    Lack of true growth. There's no way to grow outside of your current department. The deeper you get in the company, the more you noticed how jaded your fellow colleagues become.

    Advice to Management

    More career opportunities.
