    I have had a lot of fun, have learned a lot and working at Apple has definitely been a great experience.

    Family Room Specialist (Current Employee) Salem, NH

    ProsApple provides their employees with great growth opportunities. The management lets you achieve and develop on your own, without pushing or prodding you into roles you don't necessarily want. They expect you to own your own development and to push yourself to be better.

    ConsWhile Apple pays better relative to other retail environments, considering Apple's massive cash assets and the knowledge their employees are expected to display, I would expect them to compensate their employees somewhat better. Apple's attitude on the matter is that their work environment is an "experience" which is as rewarding as cash compensation. While I understand and appreciate the value of this work environment, you can't pay the bills with "experience."

    Advice to Senior ManagementI would consider compensating employees better. I have seen far too many extremely talented and dedicated people leave Apple simply because another position pays much better.

    Fantastic place to work.

    Senior Software Engineer (Current Employee) Cupertino, CA

    ProsEngineers at Apple get to make real contributions that will benefit tens or hundreds of millions of people everyday. That's awesome. Everyone makes substantial contributions to one or more products. I think incredibly highly of all of my co-workers. They do some of the best engineering work I've seen anywhere.

    ConsProducts go out the door on a schedule. Those schedules can be aggressive. If you can't deliver, you are left behind.

    Intern (Former Employee) Cupertino, CA

    Prosa company that everyone loves: the world will cheer you just because you wear that badge
    great products, with a focus on perfection - you are constantly pushed to do better
    a dynamic work environment: everyone's contributions are valued

    Conslong work hours, probably too long at times
    the focus on perfection can become stressful when deadlines approach
