    Pros

    - work on the best products in the world with the autonomy to "do what is right" versus "do what is cheap" -- excellent training for an early-career engineer
    - lots of support for learning and investigation, a culture of innovation and invention
    - surrounded by smart and passionate people

    Cons

    - tons of politics between teams
    - people are treated like resources here, don't expect anyone to care about your work-life balance -- but you have to be willing to sacrifice to do well here
    - culture varies drastically from group to group, some groups are great and some have a toxic culture
    - it seems to get ahead here you have to both be a rockstar *and* willing to step on people to get to the top -- which results in the top management spots being held by people with questionable moral standing

    Advice to Management

    Upper management at Apple is entrenched with "old white guys". There is little diversity in leadership, and few successful role models for people who aren't "old white guys".

    Pros

    -Good environment
    -Good pay
    -Good internal resources
    -Good hours
    -No commute (At-Home Advisor)

    Cons

    -Metrics are outrageously important
    -Customer feedback surveys are outrageously important

    Advice to Management

    Finding an appropriate balance with metrics is hard. I know Apple does a lot of changes and does their best. It's a work in progress, and I get that.

    Pros

    - Very Good Training
    - Amazing Benefits, very good pay when compared to other retail jobs.
    - You work with unbelievably talented people.
    - They truly care about making the world a better place through technology. Corny, I know, but it's true.

    Cons

    - The Retail hours can wear down on you after a while.
    - They expect their leaders at all levels to be ready to make Apple their life's work, even people who are only the equivalent of team supervisors.

    Advice to Management

    The advice I would say is to give their people a better work-life balance. It's definitely there, but sometimes they expect you to make business commitments that knowingly interfere with personal ones.

    Pros

    Great people to work with and great product discounts.

    Cons

    Not a lot of vertical movement. Promotions are hard to come by. Since it is retail, you'll lose your weekends (especially during product launches).

    Advice to Management

    Don't have favorites. Be better mentors despite constant role shifting.
