    Pros

    Nobody is selfish and you get lots of help from people in there. Besides, its one of the most recognised brands in the world and it'll definitely look good on any resume.

    Cons

    Secrecy and privacy might be so important that it might be a taboo to do things normally considered minor.

  2. Micro management is an understatement in retail stores

    Pros

    Lots of fresh talent in these stores. I learned so much within the course of three years. Made a lot of friends for life in this company. They love to promote from within.

    Cons

    management is usually not experienced in computers, you will be micro-managed, drink the cool-aid or be shunned. Don't be even 5 minutes late or you will be on your way out in no time. Once your a Genius or a manager you've hit the ceiling and corporate does not seek to hire retail employees.

    Advice to Management

    Stop micro-managing. Most of your employees may look and act young but are a great source to team up with. You burn them and they will make your life hell.
