    Pros

    Their pay is better than most company, but you have to work extremely long hours and weekend.

    Cons

    Zero work/life balance

    Unethical management. The manager in my department (Silicon Engineering Group) only cares what his/her boss thinks and try whatever possible to please his/her boss. They consistently made up stories/lies to make them good in front of others. If things go bad, they try their best to blame others and cover their fault.

    Nonfunctional HR. HR plays very weak role. Reporting management issues to HR does not help, instead the retaliation is what you can get.

    Once a badge of honor, now one of shame

    I have been working at Apple full-time

    Pros

    Benefits, ESPP, 401K, free food sometimes

    Cons

    Favoritism, management, stress, hours, days, upper management

    Advice to Management

    Stop micromanaging, don't ever turn off vacation, and don't move up people with egregious reports from HR of inappropriate behavior.

    Pros

    The cafe has good food, but nothing is free... The gym is very nice as well.

    Cons

    -In the division of Applecare I noticed very little people that had any career ambition than to just "get off the phones" because they were so miserable. Pretty much everyone's career path was to just make it there long enough to not have to talk to a customer on the phone. It is awful soul crushing work and you are rarely rewarded for it.
    -I've been asked to cancel planned vacations to work "mandatory" OT and was threatened to be penalized if I didn't cancel my vacation. Ultimately, management was unable to provide in writing how this was okay, so they were not able to follow through with their threats.
    -You will be asked to work all holidays. Requesting time off is difficult. They make it easier to call in sick rather than request time off. Which is total crap.
    -Very bureaucratic structure. If you're not willing to brown-nose all your managers, you will not succeed no matter how well you perform.
    -Micromanaged more than you could possibly ever imagine. Every second of your day will be logged. You will not be able to pee without having to account for that time somehow.
    -Lots of sexism in upper management. I saw women being targets and discriminated against in several instances.
    -Managers can find ways to fire people for pretty much any reason. If one of them doesn't like you, you're done for. You have to be willing to kiss a lot of butts if you want to make it anywhere within this division of Apple.
    -Sexual harassment is huge at Apple. I was a target as well as a lot of other women I knew there.
    -Absolutely no culture whatsoever. Very very corporate feel. You'd think that a company that is historically known for being innovative, creative and on the cutting edge would try to mirror their corporate culture in that way.... but NOPE.

    Advice to Management

    Value women in the workforce, combat sexual harassment. Work on company culture. Work on training your employees well. Value and reward employees. Give decent benefits and pay. Stop the high level of micromanaging.

    Pros

    Great working with cutting technology, new products, and discounts are great.

    Cons

    very poor work-life balance, long retail hours, weekends, pay is really low, you can earn more as uber driver, lots of fake people, saying love apple and products, but the would cut trouts to get places, but to get management you really need to work in a target, as seem to like external hires for management, don't tend to promote internal.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to staff, pay more attention to people concerns, don't base a person on their NetPromoter Results,

    Pros

    They make great, unique products.

    Cons

    So much money, and they could do more for their employees. I mean no free food!?! Sure it VERY high quality food for only $8. But that's all the reason why the most valuable company should be able to cover $8 worth of food for employees that work so hard.

    Pros

    You're able to Work at home.

    Cons

    They only give you 5 days off per year no matter what, no benefits, no schedule changes, and you have to handle everything. Pay was horrible

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to run a real company, treat your employees with respect, offer benefits, and stop putting so much stress on your workers.

    Pros

    They pay you relatively well. Also, people seem impressed that you work at Apple.

    Cons

    The company has no ethics. They pretend to be all about the user but really they subjugate and lock in their users. Greed is what drives this company now.
