I have been working at Apple full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

- Less burearacracy than many/most companies
- Many passionate and very smart people
- Always looking to innovate and never settle
- Very challenging environment

Cons

- Expectations are high and hours can be long
- Compensation seems below average, especially for a company doing as well as Apple
- Lack of structure can be challenging at times

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Management could do a better job of recognizing and rewarding top talent... the superstars tend to wander and consider other opportunities because they are not properly incentivized to stick around.

    I worked at Apple as a contractor for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Hands on experience with some amazing products

    Cons

    They treat contractors like toilet paper. Lotsof good ones who are contracting for over 4 or 5 years but managers show no concern in giving them a life at Apple. reason is the disregard to contractors, managers who don't think it's important to spend time on, or the managers are insecure about their own jobs.The other side, you see some employees slacking off without much to contribute.

    I have been working at Apple full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Apple really makes sure their employees have the tools they need to do their job well. From the office furniture to the cafeteria offerings, computers, and little perks like state of the art gyms and luxury shuttles with wifi that take us to and from work, they really make us feel special.

    Cons

    Management politics. Apple has too many chiefs and not enough indians. Apple is populated by leaders. Subsequently there is a lot of head-butting.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Apple is constantly looking out at other companies to make sure we're doing things better than them. You should look at other departments to make sure your people are better treated than theirs. Best Practices can apply to how you lead your people, as well.
