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

    Pros

    Apple is challenging, exciting, fun, and prepares you for any career whether with Apple or not. You will learn life skills not just tech or customer service skills. Great benefits from healthcare to transit subsidy, gym reimbursement, 401k and stock plan.

    Cons

    It's getting really big. It can be hard to be recognized unless you are the absolute cream of the crop. Very hard to get promoted from within. It's also stressful. The demands are high and pay is not equal to the work most of the time.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out how to offer career level positions from within. Most managers come from the outside these days. Recognize the hard work with rewards - not just monetary or promotion, but recognition. Some form of incentive plan would make sense also.
