    I have been working at Apple full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    - In general, almost everyone I've worked with is much smarter than an average employee at some other company.
    - Great beer bashes with awesome free food
    - Caffe macs, although not free, serves amazing gourmet quality good. The only problem is, I've gained a lot of weight!
    - Tons of work around...wide exposure to lots of IT systems. I've learned SO much in the past couple of years here and I continue to learn something new everyday.
    - People love to innovate and find creative solutions to everyday problems, however small.
    - Nothing but high quality of work is expected
    - Small teams. So you have a bigger chance to get noticed for your work. The only problem is, everybody is a rock star.
    - Good opportunities to take job related training - my manager always encourages me to take as many related courses as I want. The difficult part is taking the time out to do this.
    - Fair performance review process + cash bonus + RSUs.

    Cons

    - People who've done their time at Apple (read: Older employees) seem more laid back compared to the more recent hires/younger blood. This causes bottlenecks in projects which are extremely fast moving and need juggling of multiple priorities at the same time
    - NO WORK LIFE BALANCE. I regularly work 50-60 hours per week. The sad thing is, the more you work, the more people expect from you and the more you work. If you treat it just like a job, you might stick around, but you'll be passed on when the good projects come in. You need to decide what type of career you want - you can't do 40 hours AND shine at work at the same time.
    - High burnout rate. I find myself short of patience many times just because there's always too much to do.
    - Base salary is not that good, but more than compensated for in the form of cash bonus, RSUs, 401k

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Don't let us burn out. Balance the work across the team and don't just burden 1-2 people who are willing to work longer hours. It's not going to work long term if your best employees end up changing teams, or worse, leaving Apple.

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

    Pros

    You will learn so much from working for Apple. They will give you free training that you can apply to any job you might ever get in the future.

    The People you work with are awesome. I work in a store of over 100 people and I can honestly say I like 98% of them! Its like working with your best friends and having fun at work!

    Cons

    The crowds of people. On average our store see over 1000 people a day. I personally help around 25 a day. Because of the sheer amount of people. It high pace and high stress some days.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bigger and stand alone stores would be great! Our store is very small for the amount of people we get.
