    Apple = People First.

    Manager (Former Employee)

    ProsPeople focused, innovative, exciting and cutting edge. Company values and culture are exactly what you would expect from Apple Computer. Great pay and wonderful benefits.

    ConsExtremely fast paced, and still retail at the end of the day. You will have goals to meet, most of your day will be spent on your feet, hours can be long and tiring. Shake ups in leadership, more recently, have resulted in a dip in company culture.

    Advice to Senior ManagementProvide clearer direction and a more focused outline for employee career pathing and personal growth. Communicate openly.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Fast paced environment with great coworkers & crappy management - most of the time.

    Apple Family Room Specialist (Former Employee) Miami, FL (US)

    Pros• Great Benefits
    • Get to work with some of the greatest minds in the industry
    • Work with purpose
    • Unveil new technology and educate customers on how it can improve their lives

    Cons• Upper management is close minded
    • Employees are under valued
    • Company is one sided when reporting misconduct from Management (sides with management)
    • Doesn't matter how long you've worked there; everyone's expendable
    • Long hours

    Advice to Senior ManagementValue your employees more and listen to them more. Happy employees = happy customers. And stop hiring the rejects from Gateway, BestBuy & CompUSA; those business' clearly didn't work out for very long. Don't infect yourselves with inferiority.

    Best retailer to work for

    Specialist (Former Employee)

    ProsApple provides fantastic benefits for retail employees. Although you're getting retail pay, you'll get good perks. I had some of the best managers of my life in Apple Retail.

    ConsHard to move up or move into a corporate role. Many people in retail corporate started in the store, but only a few make it to the top. Also, a few managers who were unprofessional and hard to work for...but that will happen anywhere.

    ConsBenefits could be better. Some projects are promoted/ favored more than others

    Pretty good

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThe best reason to work for apple is the people you actually get to work with on a day to day routine.

    ConsDealing with angry customers is extremely difficult to deal with at times especially during the holiday times. Other than that it's fun to work here.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHandle business better rather than pushing it off on the workers underneath you.
