I worked at Apple full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Cool products and awesome staff. This is perfect for current college students. Great benefits.

Cons

No commission, poor career growth, bad pay. They hire 90% of their managers externally! Good luck working your way up. I wouldn't recommend this to anyone with ambition or a degree.

Advice to Management

Be real with your subordinates. A $.50 raise is nothing to get excited about. In the end, this is not a career; this is underemployment.

    I worked at Apple as a contractor (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Hands on experience with some amazing products

    Cons

    They treat contractors like toilet paper. Lotsof good ones who are contracting for over 4 or 5 years but managers show no concern in giving them a life at Apple. reason is the disregard to contractors, managers who don't think it's important to spend time on, or the managers are insecure about their own jobs.The other side, you see some employees slacking off without much to contribute.
