    Pros

    Engineers 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.

    Cons

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

    Pros

    Opportunity for advancement, great people, great pay, great experience, overall just a great time, good fellow employees, 8 bucks a month for a gym membership, definately one of the best companies to work for, its great & i love it!

    Cons

    I cant think of any, they give out free apples to employees, cons would just be those that apply to all companies in general, whatever that may be!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    it would be super awesome if volt employees could also use the gym! oh and maybe all employees would get free iPhones? haha just sayin :)

    I have been working at Apple

    Pros

    The atmosphere in the store is unlike any other. Not only that, but the amazing collection of personalities, minds and atitudes that make up the Apple family make it impossible to enjoy yourself while working. Putting smiles on a persons face after showing them something new is just an amazing feeling. I wouldn't trade it for anything.

    Cons

    The only downside of working at Apple is the fact that I have to go home at the end of the day. I honestly love this company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The management team at Apple are the most supportive I've ever had the pleasure working with. At previous jobs, I always felt somewhat daunted when approaching management. I used to feel that managers didn't care about me. But my sentiments have changed. At this company, the management team feels almost like the advisory feeling you would get from a grandparent. They're calm, understanding and caring. If every company operated at a fraction of the way Apple does then the world would be a different place.

    Pros

    The company is innovative, the corporate culture is amazing. You are truly setup for success when you start working there. I have found that management is open and ready to help.

    Cons

    Things can get stressful we're a company who releases new products constantly and you have to be up on the latest technology all the time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Getting my job at Apple made the day the last company I worked for laid me off the best day of my life.

    All employees are over-qualified and stuck working there, due to Apple's hiring process based on personality.

    Pros

    It is a prestigious place to work because the best personalities are hired on.

    Cons

    Retail hierarchy, the corporation holding a carrot in front of your nose incessantly. Laughable wages, and even more bitingly hilarious system for raises.(not based on individual performance and is only once a year. Best wage increase being $.50-$.75 to hope for.)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It is actually impossible to be promoted to management as a Specialist because all the hiring is done based on personality. Managers have entirely different personalites as Specialists, so a Specialist could never aspire towards it; one cannot change their own personallity.
