    Work Life Balance Is Not The Best

    Great place to begin a career. Your resume will love you and prospective employers like seeing the most valuable company in the world connected to you. Mostly passionate people with a minimal of people who don't belong there.

    There's always a glass ceiling and you hit it sooner than you wish.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    For the most part, keep doing what you are doing.

    I worked at Apple part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Fun and upbeat working environment
    Good opportunity for advancement
    Resources for self-learning and personal growth
    Good company culture
    25% discount on most Apple brand items

    Cons

    Promotions can be based on favoritism
    Managers and employees continue to work there after their passion is gone
    Strict attendance policy with no exceptions allowed (seen lots of good employees fired)
    Steve Jobs no longer CEO

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If one of your top salespeople has poor attendance due to circumstances outside their control, see if any exceptions or changes can be made to keep good employees.

    I worked at Apple

    Pros

    So many benefits. Parking, transportation, stock options, and now health.

    Cons

    demanding customers that are eroding the companies core values little by little.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't hire outside people to be managers that come from Best Buy, Circuit City, Radio Shack, because they start using their selling "tactics" on customers that come to apple.
