I have been working at Apple full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

-The stock purchase plan has been rewarding.
-My co-workers tend to be very high quality. The average tenure is much longer here than at other companies so I tend to think most of the employees are satisfied.
-The onsite caffe is great and serves healthy fare.
-Employee perks are numerous and generous. (beer bashes, BBQ cookoffs, etc.)

Cons

-Managers tend to "manage up".
-Lots of trendy business lingo without a lot of substance in some of them.
-The company can be greedy. Compensation plans change to drastically reduce employee income when it suits them.
-Culture is changing since Steve Jobs is gone

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Manage your employees instead of managing your spreadsheet. Build tools that help not only you but your employees do their jobs more effectively. Remember that other companies envy your talent pool.

    I worked at Apple full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Stable employment that is not going anyway. People will always love there apple product and always will be all over a place like apple.

    Cons

    There is a terrible work/live balance that does not even exist. You will always be working. People will always ask you question about Apple for the rest of your life even after you quit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The culture of Apple and what it represents is dying starting from the Inside.
