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

    Pros

    People are impressed when they hear you work at Apple. Apple encourages learning, classes are offered to learn new software. They have some really fun events and guest speakers. Cupertino is a pleasant town if you are tired of the crowds and cold weather of San Francisco.

    Cons

    Work space is very crowded. Everyone in my group works in one open room.
    Very political work environment. Some groups burn out employees quickly and have low job retention.
    There is often no notice if you have to stay late.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat everyone in organization better, not just upper management, and you would have higher employee satisfaction and retention.

    Former Employee - Senior Product Design Engineer in Cupertino, CA

    I worked at Apple full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Co-workers are smart and the best at what they do
    Impact of products is huge
    Everything you work on typically ships out to customer
    Highest compensation in the industry for HW workers

    Cons

    Always-on work climate - emails are answered within minutes, even on vacations/weekends
    Not child-rearing-friendly
    Inflexible working hours - few in HW ever work from home
    Can't have a 'public persona' or represent Apple at conferences. No credit outside the company for work you do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase workplace flexibility
    Most-hours-works shouldn't matter as much as impact made
