    I worked at Apple as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Had a great experience working there in terms of fast pace environment, international collaboration. Also, it was thrilling to work for upcoming product development. Proud to be involved with one of tech companies. Recommend to people who want to get into tech industry.

    Cons

    I think it will be depending on teams but where I worked was that building was kind of dark not enough lighting and there were cubicle so it didn't really look "tech companies" like most of tech companies in SF.

    Advice to Management

    i don't have much to say. thanks.

    I have been working at Apple full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great team work. Welcoming to any new ideas. It is very flat in structure considering the size of the company. I worked in multiple locations in the company for more than three years. The similar culture throughout the company.

    Cons

    It is not easy to begin with. The learning curve can be very daunting especially you will need to get to know people to learn stuff. A lot of things are not documents and processes are fluid. If you like it, you kinda enjoy it. Otherwise, you won't stick for long.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the structure flat and good ideas will flourish. We need to keep agile and lean in order to be continuously successful. We need fresh perspective to look at everything we do.
