    Pros

    Amazing culture and the pay is great for retail. There are so many stores so it makes it easy to move around and try new things.

    Cons

    While there are lots of avenues to try at Apple, there can be so many roadblocks in getting to the next step.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Nobody enjoys playing the political game. Recognize people for their contributions rather than judging on if you like them or not.

    I have been working at Apple full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Amazing company with amazing people. If you work hard and do your job, you will move up. This company is all about career development if you do your part and work hard. The work is extremely satisfying and I love what I do. Love the comfort of working in my home. They also send lots of t-shirts, mugs, totes, and other cool stuff that truly make you feel appreciated. Best place to work.

    Cons

    None, other than have a more strict policy on hiring. Weed out the clowns who don't have a strong work ethic and are just there to try and get out of working.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great job. It's nice to see a company that cares about it's employees and their career development.

    Pros

    They create an environment that allows you to build great relationships with your coworkers. Amazing benefits and good pay. They also paid for my school after a year.

    Cons

    It was very demanding and tough work at times. Sometimes I would get frustrated because of how much there was to do but they always provide the resources to help.

    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.

    I have been working at Apple full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    We work with geniuses - in every department, We create innovative products that thrill our customers and create new product categories - who else can say that?

    Cons

    ZERO ZERO ZERO work/life balance. Execs have been saying for YEARS that they understand and will make it better. But in actuality, it gets worse every year! It is obviously top management LIP SERVICE because if they meant it, they could fix it tomorrow. They have hundreds of BILLIONS in the bank. If they REALLY cared about employee work/life balance, they could bring aboard the right number of folks to make that issue dissolve. Sick of hearing the lies. Just don't lie about wanting to fix it, when they clearly DON'T care

    I have been working at Apple part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Work culture, employee discounts and partner programs, quality of home/work balance, competitive benefits packages.

    Cons

    Hit or miss quality of leadership, scheduling (retail...), upward mobility.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management tends to lose sight of the value that Apple places on putting the customer first. For a company so concerned about personalizing their sales approach, it's exhausting to have half of the management team completely disregard what's right for the customer.
