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

    Pros

    The people they hire are the most talented, fun, overachievers you can find. There's no surprise being hired by Apple looks good on a resume. Their focus on hiring based on personality and then training may be their greatest success.

    Cons

    While they push customer service and employees aren't commission based, they are still rated on numerical scales. Most people leave the company yearning for a 9 to 5 job with consistent hours or because they could not grow amongst the heavy competition.

    Advice to Management

    Value employees by paying more or hiring from within before hiring fifteen employees from outside the company.

    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Great offices, salaries. Doing work that actually reaches people at some point. Prestige of being "Apple." Working for a company whose products everybody enjoys. Highly professional atmosphere (could be bad for some people).

    Cons

    The feeling of being a slave of a big corporate machine. Engineers are treated like blue-collar workers that must do what they are told to do. Management has little idea of what engineering is (but does know how to deliver results using dated business oriented methods). High levels of stress every day.

    Advice to Management

    Respect your engineers. Don't treat them like code monkeys that work for bananas. This has a huge impact on the quality of their work.
