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 ManagementAdvice

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!

    Pros

    Staff was always friendly, and I enjoyed the upbeat atmosphere. It was always busy and I had a lot of practice with the customers.

    Cons

    The staff is a bit cut throat, fighting for sales. They also barrage the customer.
