    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 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 worked at Apple full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Apple provides good benefits. They hire smart people. They make great products. They have good corporate standards, good morals and good ethics.
    However, yuor mileage may vary.

    Cons

    The department is a mess. No one cares about the health of the employees. There are many stupid restrictions. The productivity demands are insane.

    Advice to Management

    Try to do the job of a reviewer for a week. See how you like the treatment. Show me that you can do half the job you expect from them.

    I have been working at Apple full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Highly competitive compensation. Once you are in, Apple takes very good care of you. Opportunity to learn from the best and brightest minds. You are consistently challenged to do your best work and leverage your resources and skill sets.

    Cons

    Challenging when you first begin since you need to learn everything on your own. There isn’t anyone micro managing you so you are the owner of your development.

    Pros

    Best benefits that you will get working as a retail part time job.

    Availability is the big thing you will need to have 20 to 30 hours always available.
