    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.

    Pros

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

    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 have been working at Apple full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The people hired at Apple are usually brilliant and talented people. Work is always challenging and the time flies. You're the first to experience all the latest and greatest technology Apple has to offer. The skills developed at Apple are applicable to many different career paths. You have the opportunity, if you're a hard worker to travel world wide and have international experiences few companies can afford their employees.

    Cons

    It's easy to hit a dead end with different roles, they only promote so far within the retail level and moving into Apple Corporate is next to impossible. From an IT standpoint it still difficult to leverage your technical knowledge when applying for tech support positions with other companies. Work can be exhausting, retail hours are unpredictable and fluctuate based on seasons and product launches. Speaking to Leadership about Compensation is very difficult, you have a yearly review and that's it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Accountability between management and employees should be held at a higher standard. With so many people working in one place it's easy to the let those who slack or don't perform as expected fall through the cracks.

    Pros

    Never boring and always challenges that push the thinking outside the box for solutions. Smart people to work with in every capacity and rewards in seeing impossible problems being solved with great tenacity and focus by like minded group of people.

    Cons

    Travel and work/life balance has always been the challenge from most of the employees in operations. Most of the manufacturing is still done overseas which tend to keep travels very high.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Building local onsite team more to help keep balance for employees in the states. Make it mandatory to limit the length of stay to 2wks max before having to return, recoup, and then return again with a good down time.
