Pros

Beautiful campus, cool products, smart co-workers. It's a fun company to be associated with. Your friends will be jealous (and also ask you to buy products using your employee discount).

Cons

As Apple continues to do better as a company, they also cut back on employee benefits. The employees with lots of stock keep getting richer, while the rest work too much overtime for average compensation compared to other companies. Healthcare costs are passed on to the employees, so benefits that were once the best in the valley pay for much less now.

Apple quietly gets rid of older, more expensive workers, and replaces them with the recent college grads who are willing to work more hours for lower pay. If you are young, it's a fun place to work a lot of hours and it looks great on your resume. But don't plan to stay there too long, unless you get lots of stock.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

How about a pension program? Many workers have $millions in stock. Many don't.

    Great company experience from the consumer perspective, needs more refinement from the employee perspective.

    I worked at Apple

    Pros

    Great culture surrounding the brand. A place where honesty is encouraged, and not trying to just sell something to someone for the hell of it. Lots of benefits, and perks for full time, and part time alike to take advantage of.

    Cons

    Didn't like the fact that employees were almost made to feel expendable, regardless of the level of service they brought to the company, and their positive contribution to heighten the experience for the consumer. I watched a lot of good employees get drop for being late a few times in a heavy traffic, constantly congested location.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice is to don't treat employees like children behind closed doors, and not give them respect in that regard, but then turn around and expect them to be adults when dealing with customers.
