    I have been working at Apple full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - The cafe is amazing, even if it's not free.
    - Great equipment - standup/sit-down desk, machines for testing.
    - Smart co-workers who care about their job. No slackers.
    - Shuttle buses for transportation.
    - Bonuses for job well done.

    Cons

    - Meetings where you could cut the tension with a knife.
    - Profanity is okay at any time.
    - More work than can be done in a 40 hour work week.
    - If you're a woman and work in engineering, but you're not a programmer, be prepared to be lonely.
    - If you don't respond to emails received on nights and weekends, you're left behind.
    - Arrogant company culture. They expect you to treat your job like you're employee #10 in a start-up.
    - No work/life balance.
    - Dysfunctionally secretive. Little to no guidance to new employees.
    - Co-workers pass you in the hallway and don't acknowledge your existence.

    If you enjoy a competitive work environment where meetings get tense, and the company takes itself very seriously, with long hours, then you'll be okay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let the people you hire do their job; don't swoop in at the last minute and make split-second decisions that are counter to decisions made by employees in previous meetings.
