Cool saying you work for Apple but thats about it. Low pay, overworked, unrealistic expectations. High blood pressure.

I have been working at Apple

Pros

Having the name on your resume is nice as most other employers will be impressed. The amazing Marketing machine that Apple is brings a lot of status wearing the badge. You can have pride in the products that Apple sells as they are truly the best products in its market.

Cons

The pay at Apple is quite a bit below industry standards. Apple leverages the name in every possible aspect including employee productivity. Management puts the constant "fear" that there are others that would love to have your job and that you are never trying hard enough or doing enough.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Increase pay and let up a little on the Micromanagement. And stop with the leadership by fear. It is driving me out.

    Pros

    Great products, great reputation, great ads.

    Cons

    No work/life balance, HR ineffective in dealing with senior level managers who display questionable ethics

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remove managers that abuse employees and have questionable ethics and integrity. It doesn't pay to keep someone at the director level who is unethical, the company as a whole is brought down and good employees are leaving.

    I worked at Apple

    Pros

    Groundbreaking technology; fabulous products; excellent salary and benefits; high-pressure but exciting corporate culture; products are developed by teams, so each employee has a chance to contribute to making the product better; generally can get the resources and support needed for essential work on products; visionary leadership.

    Cons

    High expectations; at times, very great schedule pressure if your work is part of a new product; sometimes difficult to get upper management to respect needs for balance between work and the rest of one's life.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the teamwork going and always allow individual contributors to improve the products. Bringing back sabbaticals would be terrific, too.
