Glassdoor is your free inside look at Apple reviews and ratings — including employee satisfaction and approval rating for Apple CEO Tim Cook. All reviews posted anonymously by Apple employees.
Current Employee – been working at Apple full-time for more than 10 years
Pros – exciting products (it's never dull)
highly regarded (your friends will be envious)
good salary and benefits and perks
Cons – work/life balance is nonexistent -- plan not to take your vacation days as anything but a cash payout
never admit to a conflict or concern about work/life balance -- just work it out the best you can and hang on, or leave, whichever makes the best sense to your situation
Advice to Senior Management – Please stop talking about the "post-PC world" and remember how Steve Jobs envisioned the Mac at the center of our "digital world". Your recent pronouncements about the "post-PC world" leave nothing in the center except the so-called "cloud". The "cloud" does not belong to Apple.
Without the Mac at the center, Apple is a very good manufacturer of very high quality commodity products (hardware and software), a very good distributor of other people's content (music and video), and a decent conduit to the WWW. A lot of competitors can do those things at a lower price point than Apple -- and they will.
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
