    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Good benefits, pay is good

    Cons

    - No work life balance - is extreme left leaning to the point of making right leaning people feel uncomfortable.

    Advice to Management

    Go back to center inclusion should mean that right leaning ideas should also be included in the conversation.

    Pros

    You will have Apple on your resume

    Cons

    -Low average pay rate compared to market value - Overuse of third party overseas vendors which hinder quality and frustrate internal employees due to lack of quality - Really bad work life balance. Apple has fallen behind to all modern tech companies and lacks a progressive attendance policy. You can’t even request unpaid time off in advanced unless an Area manager approves it. Really? - Little to no room for growth...

    I worked at Apple full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    **This is from the perspective of an on-site (Cupertino) corporate employee's perspective. Does not apply to home advisors or retail. - Legitimizes your professionalism and the skills it takes to acquire to get to that point in your career. - The people - if you're fortunate you will meet some great people, find a mentor and keep in touch regardless of who you call your employer. - Some teams are very flexible...

    Cons

    - Average Salary (they know folks like saying they work there and ego wins most of the time) - After a few years, politics will become very evident and part of it is keeping the status quo (i.e. innovation has declined you could apply the proverb here "The nail that sticks out...") - Inconsistent policies within organizations (Some teams within the same division/organization are 9-5, others are flexible - up to your...

    Advice to Management

    No advice, they're doing great. However, the inevitable will happen and it's coming in the form of a small scrappy company led by an eccentric CEO with a vision and product that will disrupt the world.
