Pros

Apple brand name. Very exiting projects. Bright colleagues. Fun/relaxed work atmosphere. You can see direct result of your work enjoyed by millions across the world. That's really a shot of changing the world !

Cons

Work life balance. Very flat structure with few employee positions (atleast in my group). So less chance for promotions.

Advice to Management

High end products is not going to cut in this economy. Go mass market !

    Pros

    Killer benefits package. Reasonably priced, on-site food (Cafe Mac). Employee discount. Awesome corporate culture (quarterly beer bashes, no issues with visible tattoos/piercings, non-existent dress code, okay to be an individual and not a business-casual drone. Occasional opportunity to do something incredible that can change the world. GLBTQ-friendly. Many options to work-from-home/telecommute.

    Cons

    Long hours expected. Never worked this hard at a job in my life. Rapid turnover rate with management means it's hard to develop a mentoring-type relationship with a manager who helps you develop your career. I've had 5 managers in less than 2 years, and each time I work under a new one, I have to go through the whole learning curve of proving my worth and learning their style, all over again. Corporate culture also is big on secrecy, sometimes to the point of paranoia.

    Advice to Management

    '86 the micromanagement and really listen to the voices in the trenches.
