    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 part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I loved having a casual uniform, flexible schedule, good pay, and great employee discounts. There is also good job Security with working with a company like this.

    Cons

    No growth opportunities. Every time you express an interest in growing there is a chance management will forget or not care

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

    Pros

    Wonderful Team that I worked with on the Embedded Firmware and QA Side.
    Lots of perks and team events to keep morale high.
    Concerts in the quad and great company benefits.
    Emphasis on hardware quality

    Cons

    Since it's always growing, there are constant changes at the high level which propagates to the low level. I would love to see the company grow in software quality and stability. It's not easy for some folks to adjust to some of the rapid changes.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to what Steve Jobs said about maintaining skilled employees. Top level pass-downs are not always easy to digest and execute. I love Apple and the team that I was in originally. The re-org changes need to be more carefully done without impact the current flow and more importantly--their lives. Having a forceful new manager call you in the middle of lunch to come back only to find out that you are the only one who came while others ignore him just doesn't sit well with re-orgs.

    I worked at Apple part-time

    Pros

    The pay is great. When I started it was like $16.25 an hour. You also get to meet a lot of cool people and the platform they use to trade shifts and get shifts covered is awesome.

    Cons

    Be prepared to do a lot of standing around. Also, there was around 4 interviews so be prepared for that as well.
