    Stressful at times, rewarding at times and surrounded by really smart people.

    Current Employee - Senior Hardware Engineer in Cupertino, CA

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

    Pros

    Job satisfaction. It's wonderful to work with people who are really good at what they do. If you're not sure of something, there's always an expert to call on.

    Cons

    The stress is intense at times. A whole team of people can be working flat out (including going to China) on a prototype build of your design and you don't even know if it'll work.
    There's not much work life balance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I commute 2 1/2 to 3 hours a day. I've proven I can do the job - it would be nice (and more productive) if management were more open to my working from home.
