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

    Pros

    I love working at Apple. The opportunities are second to none. You get to work on products that the whole world wants. I get to travel and the compensation is great.

    Cons

    Hours are long, the management does not always maintain a common message. Culture can be a bit cutthroat at times.

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

    Pros

    Pros - get to work with some incredibly smart people on products/technology that's used all over the world. Most people do work where the contribution really does matter. Pay could be really good depending on your performance (ie stock options, bonus, etc).

    Cons

    There are huge differences in work/life balance depending on you / your team / your manager / organization, and on the ability to say "NO" at each of those levels to the people/team where that request is coming from. Due to secrecy / culture, often several teams work on similar solutions wasting engineering hours. Similar mistakes from similar teams can sometimes be seen year after year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do feedback on the managers, to be provided to the manager's manager as well as the level above.

    I have been working at Apple as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    Everyone is very passionate and very talented. I have never met better contacts in my life.

    Cons

    It takes a large amount of work to get a pretty product and before it gets pushed out to the customer, it goes through a vigorous testing and approving cycle that seems to drag on.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Secrecy is important especially when dealing with contractors but disclosure of minor details could make our jobs much easier in the sense that we figure out exactly where our piece of the puzzle lies.

    I worked at Apple full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Definitely the internal team. The managers and team members are what made the experience at Apple so memorable. While customers can be difficult at times, it's great having the support from other colleagues on a daily basis.

    Cons

    Can definitely be stressful due to dealing with customers who could be on edge due to their piece of technology not working as expected.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Nothing in particular

    I worked at Apple full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Your colleagues are some of the coolest, most intelligent, and diverse people around. The people that work at Apple, actually care about it being a good work environment and also about doing well in business.

    Cons

    Pay is low, but because a lot of people want to work for Apple, Apple doesn't have to pay much to draw in good employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I don't actually have any advice. I was rather impressed.
