Pros

Benefits and time off. The benefits are very good. So is the time off and vacations. I also think there is good work life balance. California laws allow for great benefits. Steve Jobs is revered at the company. Is seems to be a great leader and everyone is excited about the products. Employee discounts on products are a plus too.

Cons

Stucture needed for a growing company. As the organization get bigger, the organization will need to change how they go to market and the processes that the organization employs. The organization opposes this becauses it changes the company culture, but there is a way to balance maintaining the culture with structure needed for a growing organization.

Advice to Management

Change is needed for a growing organization.

    Steve is a gifted marketeer, in knowing what people will buy, and when to bring new ideas to market.

    Pros

    A chance to say you work for a "cool" company, that outsiders admire for the most part. There's also a chance to be involved in a great innovative energy that you might not get elsewhere. Sort of a halo effect from the creativity that occurs all over, not just in engineering. At the end of the day, its nice to be recognized for being part of the effort. All in all, its a good community to be involved with.

    Cons

    The caste system between engineers and all who are not. Includes pay, smugness, attitude. People who aren't engineers are sometimes regarded as less intellectual, even though the work might be very creative, very important, and very mind intensive. You have use the F-word, "flexible", more times than one cares to count.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your foundation and support structure to keep the roof from caving in. There's a significant team supporting the folks who create new products and marketing ideas. Many have decades of experience here, bringing invaluable tribal knowledge to the table.
