    I have been working at Apple part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Everyday I’m excited to go to work knowing that I’ll be helping people, finding out new things about the various devices or just engaging with my colleagues.

    The thing about Apple, it’s not designed to be a hard sell company. I don’t look to hard sell you the iPhone, in fact, Apple’s marketing should garner enough interest in you already, I just want to lead you to a place where you may/may not see an Apple product working well for you.

    Let’s talk about support. Out of all the other consumer electronics manufacturer out there, who offers such a diverse support system, whether at home, out and about or even in a different country. I have the confidence that if something goes wrong with my phone or iPad or MacBook, I know who to go first.

    Cons

    I have suspected that management can be a little off. Meaning some don’t have as enough technical expertise as I’d hoped, some lack in people skills and some you don’t see at all.

    In addition, they talk very well about reaching your full potential, but with that comes a game of favouritism. If they love you, they’ll put in good word, if not, well, you may as well just remain a specialist!

    Advice to Management

    Be proactive in employee engagement and development. There are some employees who have spoken to me about wanting to do something to build their character and have been shot down. I don’t want to have to do your own work. If it needs be, you step down and I’ll take your place.
