    Pros

    I enjoyed working at Apple since there was purpose (a Unix-driven OS with a great front-end GUI, consolidated Sony-like "family" of product-line, a strong leader (Steve Jobs), and of course great success in the retail market, a good framework for designing software.)

    Cons

    The negatives for Cupertino are many. It is part of a largish valley that has bad air,
    immense traffic, horrid housing and rental costs, and a cultural milieu which has
    aggressive immigrants raising housing and rental prices, on-purpose. The area
    is essentially unaffordable!!! The "boutique towns" along the peninsula do not
    impress. The East Bay is dangerous. It is hard to find a place to relax in the "Bay Area".

    Advice to Management

    Divest yourself of your large bonuses and options/restricted stock units and GIFT them to your employees for you are NOTHING without them!!!! Renounce your too-high salaries and take
    $1 per year!!!! Be like Jobs and stop following his advice to not be like him. That's fatal for the firm!
