    Pros

    – Great salary
    – Good name for the resume
    – Semi-decent discounts on Apple products
    – Special concerts by great artists during summer Beer Bash

    Cons

    – Very poor leadership
    – Work w/ a wide range of people: from ex-agency folks who are sharp to 50 year old parents who want the salary and stock but not the hours
    – Work within creative and strategic constraints (thinking outside the box is discouraged)
    – No accountability from leadership down
    – Flat organization which prevents a lot of growth
    – Recruiting is sharp and well-trained in pitching the job, etc.
    – Easier to get into Apple then to leave (no exit interview, no benefit reviews, shuts off cell service, etc.)
    – Too much gray.
    – Operations (process and response time) is hit and miss from IS&T to HR
    – Very impersonal because it is so large. Each department has their own internal intranet site and emails and hotlines. The in-person HR lead knowledge is inconsistent to the hotline.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't let the talented and passionate ones go because you're threatened by their out of the box thinking.

    Hold those in each function accountable for team goals and responsibilities.

    Stop reacting to competitors efforts. Start to be proactive in design and marketing so stock stops dwindling. Be the company you were 10 years ago that innovates and is passionate to outdo themselves...not sit pretty and react to up and coming category players and continue to be arrogant that you'll remain on the top being complacent.

    Pros

    Great people. Upbeat atmosphere. Fun.

    Cons

    Contractors are treated like second class citizens. The managers I dealt with were very reluctant about paying overtime and rarely did so even when the project was going to miss a deadline.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you are going to use contractors mixed in groups with full timers treat them fairly. Pay overtime when its justified.
