I worked at Apple as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

Apple is a very exciting and fun environment and you are surrounded by very smart people. If you love Apple products, it is like being in utopia. The work is challenging and satisfying. Management is very competent and is doing a great job.

Cons

The company is split into very distinct silos and it is difficult to move around. If you know what career path you are passionate about, it is a great fit, but if you want to explore more, it may not be the best place to be for you.

Advice to Management

Stick to the company's roots. Apple is in an entirely different position now, being the market leader with a target on its back.

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

    Pros

    Fellow employees. Apple hires a very specific set of people and if you're one of them, you'll love it.

    Cons

    Once Jobs passed the new regime really didn't seem to know what they were doing, every one was trying to assert themselves, and it made a mess of things behind the scenes. Also, not much room for advancement once you reach Genius level. Was told point blank by sr management that they only pull new managers from sales.

    Advice to Management

    Tell the truth to your employees. When you're trying to clear out old inventory by a new phone is coming out, tell them that's why you're pushing sales of the old product, don't couch it as "it's in the best interests of the customer"
