    Pros

    Office culture is what you make it since you work from home. There are guidelines but nothing too bad. I love it. I make work how I want and the atmosphere I keep enables me to constantly strive at what I do.

    Cons

    Leadership is great. Management is amazing. Great perks. Apple takes care of you from their health benefits to their employee programs. Amazing!

    I worked at Apple as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Great team and mentorship. Freedom on project direction. Flex hours, access to experienced senior employees for advice. Gym on campus. Transport reimbursement.

    Cons

    The hours can be very long, sometimes 80 hour weeks as an intern depending on which team you on are. The culture can sometimes feel elitist.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better work life balance.

    I have been working at Apple part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Good work-life balance, lots of opportunity for personal growth here especially if you're a part-time student, good pay for part time, excellent training

    Cons

    Your experience can be at the whim of your management. Stores have many managers with varying management styles. It can get inconsistent and your achievement reviews may be mixed. Too many males being hired.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire managers who work well as a team and can create a cohesive culture. In my experience the managers had unique personalities, strengths and weaknesses but it didn't work in a "diversity is better" kind of way; it created disconnect among the store.

    I worked at Apple full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Culture is pretty cool, they let you be who you are. Your coworkers are great, there is a lot of training.
    Benefits are great, pay is so so. High for retail, but low for tech

    Cons

    Management is a mixed bag of amazing people and incompetency. Your hard work may be for nothing depending on who is managing.
    Absolutely no work life balance. Weekends are mandatory, and Friday is a weekend day for them.
    Midnight shifts are also a thing, instead of repairs in the morning like it always was, now you stay til midmight despite the store closing at 9.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Part timers should work weekends, which many already need since many times they're students. Work life balance is an issue

    I worked at Apple full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Apple has the best brand recognition in the world, and they have the top talent to create great products like Macs and iPhones.

    Cons

    Engineers are sent to China way too often. The life in China for several weeks leading to new product launches is not very good.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Apple has the tendency of being too secretive about the new products. Sometimes the "need to know basis" hurts communication among different product groups.
