Pros

Free product depending on your group.

If you're truly driven by your work, then this is the place. It truly is a products, customers, and the numbers will follow sort of place.

Good health benefits, good on site benefits, subsidized good food. No matter how much vacation time you have saved up, the company still shuts down from Christmas to the day after New Years (but you might have to still work).

Cons

If you're not the type to take pride in saying, "I work for Apple" to people then this isn't the place for you.

If you can't handle ambiguity, this isn't the place for you.

If you want 9-6 with an hour lunch, 5 days a week, this isn't the place for you.

Everyone is so focused on delivering something great that the "process" isn't always reviewed, since there aren't many processes, the wheel gets reinvented.

Advice to Management

Sometimes it feels like employees are always there for Apple, but Apple isn't always there for the employees. That's really the case with any big company, but Apple is so successful and so lean, I don't think it'd take much to share a little more of the success.

    Pros

    Working with customers and helping them take home Apple products is truly a rewarding experience. The majority of customers are friendly and excited about being in the store and learning about the products, which makes the job a lot of fun. Coworkers are also a major pro, as they are diverse, supportive, friendly, helpful and fun.

    Cons

    Management is obsessed with service attachment rates. Despite Apple Corporate's belief in providing exceptional service, store managers are willing to sacrifice the customers by promoting aggressive selling techniques and will even punish compassionate specialists. If you want to work in an Apple retail store, be prepared for an intense sales environment where your are constantly pushed and bullied into achieving better sales numbers.

    Advice to Management

    Think of the customers and employees before your numbers, because people are the heart of Apple, not service attachment rates.

    Pros

    You get a chance to work with teams where management & engineers are very Intelligent and Hard working. Go Apple :)

    Cons

    Certain HR benefits are less compared to other companies but other than that I don't see any other downsides of working @ apple. This is a great place to work and grow in your career.

    Advice to Management

    Management makes all the right decisions on a timely manner and always produce products of high quality in the market. I think providing more benefits to company employees would be the advise from my side.
