    I have been working at Apple full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great medical benefits
    Great vacation & sick time (for full-time employees)
    "Fun" work environment - you work with a wide variety of people from all walks of life

    Cons

    One word: retail. Unable to have a fixed schedule, deal with cranky customers on a daily basis, managers who don't really know the product (unable to support you). Apple seems to target those without much direction, and gives them hope that they will be able to advance and then never actually promote them (besides money-making machines). Hard to get a job here, even harder to advance once you're in

    An extremely fulfilling life changing experience but with plenty of costs

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Read more books on complex systems. Stop enforcing top-down process for the sake of it; build simple rules to create a fence around where you want the company to move while allowing your teams to direct how they best see fit. Apple isn't a small company anymore and as such the same management models will not work. Invest more in the talent that has brought Apple its success as that will create a positive feedback loops in ares of: competing in the high skilled labor market, reducing overhead costs, avoiding the Apple engineering churn, etc.
