Pros

Training is the best around. Advancement is determined by performance not by experience. Family atmosphere. Best technology in the world

Cons

You are rewarded for hard work by leadership positions and more responsibility, but it does not mean that you will earn more compensation

    Pros

    Apple is a fantastic company, albeit going through some major transitions right now.
    - Great insurance benefits for full time and part time employees.
    - Good discounts and lifestyle benefits.
    - Positive atmosphere for the most part.
    - Apple only hires competent candidates, so you're on a team you feel good about.
    - There's lots of ongoing training.
    - New Career Experiences give Retail Employees the opportunity to explore new facets of the business.

    Cons

    - Very few promotions to management from within (retail).
    - Most managers were District Managers of other big retailers, and were recruited. That means they often have no experience whatsoever with Apple Products or Culture, which can be hard to take as a long time Apple enthusiast and employee.
    - Drastic differences between Retail and Corporate culture, with Retail often feeling like the ugly stepchild.
    - Retail doesn't receive all of the same perks as Corporate.
    - Retail hours are inflexible and don't allow for much of a work-life balance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Study up. When you're new to Apple, immerse yourself in the culture and get to know your people before you try to make any changes. Apple has always been a company that values its people, and we can't afford to have managers that don't.

    Pros

    I absolutely loved the people I met every day, the experiences involved in product launches and the general positive attitude every employee had, as well as every customers surprise and delight when you showed them something Apple technology could do better than the competition.

    Cons

    The only complaint I could ever have about working for Apple was that it was difficult to move up to the next level, even when you as an employee are hitting and exceeding the goals set for you. The only other issue I had was with compensation. Delivering the kind of sales results I was should have led to a higher salary and more opportunities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to notice the employees who are striving every day to do and be the absolute best and reward them for those things.
