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

Pros

The work you do changes the world. Love it or hate it, people know about your work. That's more than most can dream for. There are ppl who would kill for my job.

If you care about pixel perfect (most ppl don't) this place is heaven.

I'm pretty well paid, I am sure I could get more elsewhere, but there would just be something poopier about the other place (like the new place's cafeteria would suck or the office space would be open floor plan or cubes).

Cons

Long hours. The media was up in arms about the Foxconn employees working 60 hrs a week (with overtime) and I often work 70-80 hr work weeks, sometimes more, with no overtime. Granted I am not doing manual labor, but I'm still in a deadend job.

Parking is a problem, too many people in the cafeteria, offices are doubled or tripled up. Offices are out of date (it's nothing like the Apple stores. Think dreary government office).

There is nearly zero career advancement opportunity at Apple.

Some groups are well managed in terms of schedule and work load, others are not.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Build the spaceship faster. The pay could bit a little better, but that's #firstworldproblems

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

    Pros

    Really great products to work on, exciting opportunities and smart interesting people to work with. There is a strong culture of focusing on the end-user experience and not irrationally obsessing with features/technology.

    Cons

    It's a big company, so there are the general the rules and bureaucracy you don't have at, say, a start-up. There is a strong Apple-focused culture and loyalty which becomes both a strength and a weakness.
