Pros

Possibility to move anywhere in the company

Cons

Management is not qualified and it might be because Apple is new in the retail business or just a Quebec thing.

Advice to Management

Act like you are proud about what you are doing and don't forget it's a team effort and not just you as a person.

    Pros

    I'm proud to work at Apple. It has very high visibility, wonderful products, great and hard working employees, and a friendly atmosphere.

    Cons

    The hours are simply too long. There is no work-life balance. You will be expected to be on call at all times of the day, including weekends. Management forgets deadlines, creating a trickle down effect and time-crunch. Overall strategic planning is not a strength. Consider it this way: take your salary and divide by half (since you will be working essentially 2 jobs during an 80-100 hour week).


  2. "Wow"
