Pros

Great place to work! Very good work ethics. Things move too fast to waste time with drama or people who don't contribute… they get fired fast.
From an IT standpoint, you get 100% control of your own system(s)!

Cons

Poor work/life balance. Employee discounts are less than desirable. Because working for Apple is considered "it's own reward" there is a tendency to pay on the lower side of the spectrum. Unfortunately applicants will take the below industry rates just to be at apple.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Never be afraid to say "no".

    Pros

    Basically was life training; the varied interactions (and customers) teach you how to approach lots of different situations. You might become more outgoing as a result of working there. You also get the opportunity to learn a ton about technology. Worth it if you are willing to put the time in.

    Cons

    Lots of rules, some of which can be broken, but unclear which. There is a bit of a glass ceiling - it can be hard to move up. And there is a lot of ambiguity; sometimes it's not entirely clear what is actually expected of your performance vis a vis with what management is saying.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to be consistent in what you are communicating to staff.

    Overall a good experience, but with many small pitfalls

    Pros

    Fantastic benefits with a work environment that breeds a certain connection between team members, with most of the management team being competent enough to work with you on most issues.

    Cons

    Definite brainwashing atmosphere with lots of pep talks and cheerleading moments which leads either to intense love for the company or a silent, brooding disgust of many company policies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cold hard facts tend to be appreciated by certain people - managers need to be able to recognize which people this works for, and not feed them the same lines as others.
