    Pros

    The company, the products and the people are all top tier. Amazing talent and unbeatable quality and manufacturing. The food is pretty amazing too.

    Cons

    There's very little room for career growth. Many glass ceilings. Burnout is inevitable.

    Advice to Management

    Utilize your talented employees. They have much more to offer than the one skill you've hired them for.

    Pros

    You will learn a great deal and are involved in substantial decision making. Compensation is good.

    Cons

    Work-life balance is non-existant. Quite a bit of time spent covering yourself rather than working collaboratively to resolve issues. Vacation is not very good.

    Advice to Management

    Somehow need to provide employees with a good work-life balance.

    Pros

    You'll love your job. You'll be a celebrity whenever someone finds out you work for Apple. You'll work hard, you'll gain life-long friends, get great discounts, tremendous healthcare benefits, and you'll believe in what you do.

    Cons

    You'll work hard in a rigid environment that promises innovation, but often discourages or ignores it. Advancement beyond the role of Genius is nearly impossible from within unless you posses an insane tenure and you're extremely chummy with your market managers.

    Advice to Management

    Management does a great job with the restrictions they're given. Corporate needs to recognize the power of promoting from within.

    Pros

    I interned in Apple last summer as an hardware design group. It is a good experience in general. The coworkers are good. The pay is much higher than all other interns I have ever gotten. I learn a lot of experiences. I started using mac and found out it is very good for working.

    Cons

    The design environment is pretty close. In other companies, most of the designs are open to all the employees. Here, you can only see what you need to see. Not as easy to learn as others.

    Advice to Management

    As an intern, I have nothing to complain about. I worked with a couple of nice coworkers and I think I will probably go back after I graduate.
