    I have been working at Apple full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Get to work with some of the best people in your field. Lots of infrastructure built into the company for employees to use ranging from software tools, to an office gym and hospital to transportation subsidy programs

    Cons

    Apple has had almost no layoffs in its history so some people can coast while remaining at the company, providing value through retaining tribal knowledge and less about being the best in the industry. Too much stability can built complacency as in any large company.

    I worked at Apple full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    • Incredible culture and drive to be and do the best at everything. Steve's simple yet powerful vision "to make the greatest products in the world" really did deliver. • Special place to be and work alongside some really great and talented people. I was there for 8yrs and to this day have life long friends and trusted colleagues. • IF you performed and achieved results, you could be compensated handsomely. This was obviously even more dramatic the earlier you joined (I joined around the time of the 1st iPhone). * Honestly, I miss so much about Apple despite it being my choice to leave. There was so much greatness there but I had to expand my horizons and in doing so have passed on immeasurable amounts of experience I gained while at Apple.

    Cons

    • Like any organization, there were some true jerks. They were somewhat few and far between but upper
