    I have been working at Apple full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    We work with geniuses - in every department, We create innovative products that thrill our customers and create new product categories - who else can say that?

    Cons

    ZERO ZERO ZERO work/life balance. Execs have been saying for YEARS that they understand and will make it better. But in actuality, it gets worse every year! It is obviously top management LIP SERVICE because if they meant it, they could fix it tomorrow. They have hundreds of BILLIONS in the bank. If they REALLY cared about employee work/life balance, they could bring aboard the right number of folks to make that issue dissolve. Sick of hearing the lies. Just don't lie about wanting to fix it, when they clearly DON'T care

    I have been working at Apple (More than a year)

    Pros

    The position is at home. The company is AMAZING. There are limitless advancement opportunities. You work with some very cool people and the leadership cares about your development. You may get coaching but you never get battered or belittled. The pay is decent and the benefits include, 401(k) match, stock purchase options, product discounts and discounts on services across many different areas, education assistance, child care assistance, paid vacation, sick time and other time off options, health club Reimbursment or bike cost set off. You get 1.5 time for OT and it's pretty much unlimited as long as you don't exceed 12 hours in a day or 59 total in a week.

    Cons

    The schedule changes every 90 days and you have to bid for your shifts so you never know what you are going to get. This makes it extremely hard to plan your life to far in advance. You are also pretty much assured to work a Saturday or Sunday.

    Advice to Management

    The management consists of a team manager and their area manager. Meetings are held over video and chat. They are supportive of individual development and help you to reach your goal. Management will challenge you if you want to advance but it's always in the spirit of making you better to prepare you for the next role.

    I worked at Apple full-time

    Pros

    Work from home was pretty nice

    Cons

    Went from challenging to people suffering mental breakdowns over the workloads. Essentially became a tech support sweatshop.

    Advice to Management

    Three chats at a time? Seriously?

    I worked at Apple full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Worked in store as a Product Specialist. It is a great place to work and the benefits are amazing! Would recommend anyone trying to get out of the same old same old sales game to work here.

    Cons

    There seem to be a lot of career opportunities, but there is also a lot of competition.

    Pros

    Great healthcare initiatives, our HealthKit will render EHR useless and create the rise of personal health records rather than records stored at different health places for one person, doctors can get access.

    Cons

    Don't partner with some of the best healthcare companies, only the flashiest like Mango which hurts us. Work with Modernizing Medicine and iPad for example!

    Advice to Management

    Look outside of Silicon Valley as there are a lot of awesome healthcare companies
