    I have been working at Apple full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Working at Apple means that the things you work on get into the hands of hundreds of millions of people, literally. It's a lot of pressure to get things right and drives one to do the best work of their lives. 2+ years later I'm still blown away by the talent and creativity of people I work with.

    Cons

    It's a lot of work, teams are usually strapped for resources and under pressure to deliver on strict timelines leading to high stress and long hours at certain times during the year.

    Advice to Management

    Keep fighting for "what's right". Renewable energy, civil liberties, working condition, everything. I couldn't be prouder of that aspect of the company, in the end it's about a lot more than profits and earnings.

    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.

    Pros

    Excellent benefits, opportunity for personal and professional development, wonderful coworkers and a fun work environment.

    Cons

    little upward mobility. Poor communication between corporate and retail leading to foolish errors and waste of resources. Employees who excel are treated the same as employees who don't try.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest, and treat your employees like adults, rather than high school students.

    Pros

    Benefits, coworkers, discounts, great perks around Holidays, management will truly work with you if you have health needs relevant to work.

    This comes with any large corporate territory, but after some time it feels like a cult with the brand promotion.
