    Pros

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

    - 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 part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    you get to meet a lot of great people since you are always in the public eye. You get to play with great technology and leran a lot from peers and customers. Employees are a lot of fun and very intelligent and artistic in their own right. The management seems to care about the employees wellbeing generally

    Cons

    As a full time job you don't get paid nearly what you're worth. You often have to deal with insane amounts of ambiguity and constant changes. You are expected to give your life for the company, which can become increasingly difficult if you have another full time job.

    Advice to Management

    My advice would be to corporate. As a company that can solve the national deficit it would be nice to be treated as though we werent so easily expendable. Yes I know that because it's a job a lot of college students/grads go for, which means they will take lower pay, however it's a bit insulting to those of us who have been there a while and have families. Back in the day Apple positions were very highly sought after because they paid much better and the retention rate was higher. Times have certainly changed and it's very unfortunate. Now it seems as though people only use Apple as a stepping stone for a job they really want.
