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

Pros

A distinctly fast paced and challenging environment where it is beneficial to begin to foster and nurture business relationships with clientele on a personal level. I find it very easy to talk to people and want to get to know them as people, not just as customers. The camaraderie that people develop with their customers, both internal and external is incredible.

Cons

Even though the senior corporate leadership is fantastic, skilled, proven and driven to make a good product and take care of its people, the retail leadership is highly lacking. The tendency is to hire people from the outside (Target, for example) who are not familiar with the internal Apple culture and ascend them into leadership roles, rather than spend a little more time and a little more money to develop leaders from within the Apple retail family.

Advice to Management

Rethink your retail business model, especially when it comes to hiring outside people to lead your stores. You say you are passionate about your employees, retaining and developing them into being whatever they want, well, prove it. The soul of your company is your people. The face of your company is your Retail Stores. when you hire sub-par people to lead AMAZING sotres, you are going to get sub-par results.

    I have been working at Apple part-time

    Pros

    Benefits are great all the way around...from commuting, personal purchases, stock and health insurance. Apple really believes in helping you reach your goals and encourages professional development. Exciting, positive environment to work!

    Cons

    Work - life balance is important to Apple but it becomes a little difficult during holidays and when a new product launches.
