    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...

      Pros

      Great work environment. Growth focused. If you want to become a overall better person they provide the tools and guidance. Work hard, play hard mentality. Getting in at Apple isn't easy so it helps to know someone and they refer you. Some of the best leaders around work there, but not all leaders share the same vision. Work/life balance is very important to them and they give you lots of time to take off. Employee...

      Cons

      Not the most autonomy, although the managers try their best to convince you. Extremely competitive to move up, can become political. I've heard pay has improved although it definitely could have been more competitive for the work and the results. Depending on what market you are located in, there can be an extreme push for results.

      Advice to Management

      Be as transparent as possible. Continue to invest in your people. Communicate as effectively as you can.

      Pros

      - Good work life balance depending on your team - Could be interesting work but your project also depends on how your manager thinks personally of you. If you don't get on well, you might end up with projects no one wants to work on. - Great benefits from the company including good food, good 401k, health insurance etc. - Supportive environment for personal development.

      Cons

      - Recruiters are usually bad and unprofessional. They usually try to lowball you (as typical) but if you try to negotiate, they become aggressive and even rude. - Very unbalanced compensation even within the same teams. Study up your numbers well before signing up. - Secrecy - Very non-uniform groups within the company. There are big differences between different organizations so you might have totally different experience...
