Pros

- Great products and new technology to work with
- Learn to leverage Apple's huge supply chain influence to get what you want quickly
- Business class travel and 5-star hotels

Cons

- Extremely flat at the top, execs make almost all of the decisions
- Promotions are very few
- Poor feedback from the management team
- 60-80 work week is the norm, not the exception
- 2-3x per quarter in China, expected to go to every Engineering built, even if to just sit in the factory "in-case" something goes wrong
- Organized chaos, everyone does their own thing to get the job done. No structure
- Salary/benefits are below market average, and yearly compensation is getting worse every year I've been here

Advice to Management

Have been opportunities to promote. Increase benefits and compensation.
