    I have been working at Apple full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    It seems to be good for resume. People believe that Apple is hot.

    Cons

    - Average Salary
    - poor bonus with no stocks
    - Obj C/Cocoa is only matters, don't even bother if you are HTML5/js person
    - Not much innovation in a lot of departments, especially IS&T
    - Very little diversity in a lot of departments

    Advice to Management

    Pay more to engineers, better bonuses, and free food

    I have been working at Apple full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Job satisfaction. It's wonderful to work with people who are really good at what they do. If you're not sure of something, there's always an expert to call on.

    Cons

    The stress is intense at times. A whole team of people can be working flat out (including going to China) on a prototype build of your design and you don't even know if it'll work.
    There's not much work life balance.

    Advice to Management

    I commute 2 1/2 to 3 hours a day. I've proven I can do the job - it would be nice (and more productive) if management were more open to my working from home.
