I worked at Apple full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Get to work on amazing new stuff that actually ships.
Tens of millions of people run my code every day in their iPhone, iPad or Mac.
Worked with and learned from the best people in the industry.
Tons of mutual respect for all fellow employees.
Confidence: you are at Apple.. If it can be done, then we can do it.

Cons

Some teams are better than others.
Some managers would be better engineers.
It's hard to live up to the reputation of Apple.

Advice to Management

Your employees love working for you, just please make sure you aggressively fight political situations and poor management and trust in your engineers to do what it takes to make awesome stuff. Also: a profound thank you for many awesome years. I never felt like I was wasting my time.
