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

Pros

Can be fun somewhat, but don't expect a warm fuzzy "welcome to the family" approach after your 2nd month. It's ok in the beginning, but the claws come out around the 3rd month.

Cons

Staff is mean spirited & VERY clickish. If they don't like you, the co-workers will make it difficult for you on a daily basis. Hours are also very UNFLEXIBLE.

Advice to Management

Stop trying to move up the ladder & out & take care of your people.

    Cons

    Lack of career path for engineers
    Very secretive even internally
    Limited stock grants, its an old company that doesn't put its cash back into its employees
