    Pros

    I recently finished my undergraduate degree in Psychology and took this job, despite being way overqualified for two reasons.

    First, it was conveniently offered straight after I graduated. Second, I wanted to find out why Apple is considered to be so special.

    Everything within Apple is transparent, peer reviewed and abuse trough colleagues or management is systematically eradicated.

    A comprehensive health insurance package is provided for myself and my wife, covering a wide range of options.

    I can work from home and all the required hardware and internet cost are covered by Apple.

    There are a lot of different benefits provided that range from chunky discounts when you buy hardware to incentives if you work overtime.

    The most important aspect is that you work in a sane environment with mostly emotionally and cognitive mature individuals.

    The environment at Apple is constantly changing and depending on your background, relatively fast paced what makes every minute spent working feel like it was worthwhile.

    Cons

    Working for Apple is a credo and not done for monetary reasons, this is reflected in the pay.

    There can be the occasional technical issue that impedes a smooth work flow.

    The work is done in shifts and this might be alright if you at the start of your working career but I am most productive in the early morning hours.

    The measuring of performance with the help of statistics is not done to the highest standards, it is often flawed and working towards targets based on those statistics can feel pointless.

    Advice to Management

    Only expect what you are willing and able to give yourself. Take ownership and responsibility for your staff.

    The majority of Managers encountered in my time clearly reach the gold standard or excel.

    There are a few individuals who are clearly not in the right position and take credit for their staff despite not having put in any work or effort to justify this particular behavior.

    Pros

    Friendly colleagues, fun environment, upbeat, and fast paced. Great benefits, and very supportive HR department.

    Cons

    Through no fault of the company, the position was not right for me. On top of that fact, it was very difficult to attempt transferring positions. Eventually felt stuck.

    Advice to Management

    Listen more attentively to your employee's personal concerns. Personal issues should always be kept out of the workplace, but the few times they are not, they should be better addressed in order to better support the store team as a whole.

    Pros

    The salary is good and the culture is also very good. The people are also nice. My office is in a good location.

    Cons

    The work is very boring. It is doing the same thing over and over again every day. Management refuses to fix problems with the company.

    Advice to Management

    fix all the problems you are facing with new software integration and competitors reverse engineering new and different functions.

    Pros

    Great working environment! Employees all look out for one another. Also, a really flexible work environment. Room to advance and grow through experience.

    Cons

    Hard to get above expectations and transfer locations - even if you go above and beyond and start your own initiatives within the organization.

    Advice to Management

    Work on providing employees more promotions as it may deter them from continuing to work at Apple in the future
