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 Management

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 Management

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

    Pros

    Work environment unlike any other. People around you are unlike any other their all a great single individuals, it's hard to believe they can have so many great people in one place.

    Cons

    Moving to another position is almost impossible in the retail stores because of the number of employees it becomes incredibly competitive.
