I worked at Apple part-time (less than an year)

Pros

Friendly atmosphere, easy to enjoy work, strong coworker bond. Frequent workshops to help boost employee knowledge and skills.

Cons

Standing, walking alot, little to no opportunities to sit down aside from break. Very difficult to move up in corporate ladder, they make you jump through quite a lot of hoops.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Make it easier for entry level employees to move up -- giving them the illusion of being in control of moving up when it's actually at management's whim isn't cool.

    I have been working at Apple full-time (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 Offices are out of date (it's nothing like the Apple stores.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 as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Easy to get job, as long as you know about computers
    paid training

    Manager is understanding and treats you like you are a customer

    Cons

    The computer system used can be a nuisance sometimes.
    Apple customers can also be snooty and annoying

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A free ipad mini to your advisors wouldn't hurt
