    Pros

    Working for one of the most desired companies in the world.

    Cons

    Image is everything, you must be perfect. Financially, Apple is an extremely conservative company.

    Advice to Management

    At times you wonder where management's heads at. At the end of the day, when you begin to see the full picture, you realize that everything Apple does is a for reason. Detail oriented is an understatement for the work culture. Some management requests seem daunting and there is little advice given from management on how to achieve their requests, this forces you to be creative.

    Apple has strict guidelines and rules for success. "Entitlement rots the soul". This could never be more true however much the upper management has forgotten this rule for success and they require an entitled attitude and level of respect from all underlings.

    Apple is a massive business that runs like a small business with Tim Cook requiring approval for much what would be considered a small request.

    Only the most creative people in the world should consider any job with Apple, their is no clear line or direction from management out side the inner circle of leaders (Time Cook, Jony Ive, Phil Schiller ext.). You cannot look for success at Apple, you must create success at Apple. If you Apply for any position that you think you would feel comfortable in, know that it will push you though many obstacles that are out of your comfort zone.

    You must LOVE Apple to work there. I've spent many countless hours working off the clock for mundane small details that make a report or project look perfect. You must be willing to give up free time for unpaid off-the-clock work. You must love the company in order to work for it. You must love Apple in order to work for it. Love Apple in order to work for Apple. Love Apple you must in order to work for Apple. (there is a theme here, do you get it?)
