    Pros

    I have been working at Apple full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Get to work on cool, consumer-facing and relatable products Very dynamic environment that will push you to be better Really the work itself and getting to work with great people is the main benefit of working at Apple Executive team has done a good job managing Wall Street and leveraging momentum of past product innovations to drive current results.

    Cons

    Wild inequity in perks, cafeterias and facilitates across functions and teams Pays generally below market. Newer employees paid more relative to long timers due to no market adjustment on salary Product discounts could be much more generous. Under investment in enterprise tools. Manual work expected and taken for granted. Exec team generally in an ivory tower. Rarely seen and address the teams candidly even less. Have to be very self-driven and a careerist to succeed, little infrastructure for internal development and mobility. No qualms about hiring external candidates over internal. Generally poor work/life balance. Life event (eg, parental leave) getting better but Silicon Valley peer companies generally ahead in this area
