    Pros

    Challenging, interesting. Apple makes impressive products that have had a discernible impact on the world. Lots to learn and do.

    Cons

    Location. Short contract and lack of long term commitment. Pay is not as good as one would think for this company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Current Employee - Apple Family Room Specialist in New York, NY (US)

    I have been working at Apple full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The benefits are fantastic.

    You genuinely enjoy the people you work with; consistently high-performing, intelligent people.

    Cons

    Underpaid for the work that we do.

    Communication at the retail level is abysmal, but hidden under the moniker of 'dealing with ambiguity'. Management include many ladder-climbers with no personal accountability.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Re-tool your focus from results to internal customer focus. The NY market has an atrocious NPP. I witnessed constant braindrain from our teams as area startups poached our best people, who wanted to leave because they were overworked and underpaid.

    I worked at Apple as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Executive Speaker Series
    Intercampus shuttle system
    Informal attire, jeans and maybe even a collared shirt would be the most expected of an employee
    On campus food is delicious and plentiful
    Provided housing/stipend options
    Provided travel/stipend options
    Interns encouraged to only work 40hr/week but sometimes allow overtime if requested

    Cons

    Decentralized campus with many different buildings, though this is changing with the newer campus coming soon.

    I worked at Apple

    Pros

    The People are what make this company who they are... Of course the products as well.

    Cons

    Scheduling issues at times makes it hard to plan your life accordingly. They could be more flexible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have more of a relationship with your employees, get to know them more. Be flexible with the scheduling of shifts.

    I worked at Apple

    Pros

    Cool team with interesting people, nice discount on Apple products, you will gain a lot of general technical knowledge and awareness.

    Cons

    Environment can be very stressful, customers are often rude, have to work weekends and late hours, have to spend hours standing, holidays/ launch days are especially difficult in the volume of customers serviced.

    I worked at Apple full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    On the job training
    Great benefits
    Good pay
    Great people to work with

    Cons

    Overwhelming workload
    Disgusting schedule
    Childish customers
    Some people paid high and low for doing the same job

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think its better to pay higher salaries to the ones who have great experience and good work ethic. The ones who excel should be the ones you want to keep. Do not pay high salaries to the ones who are horrible and lazy.
