    I have been working at Apple full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Good work life balance depending on your team - Could be interesting work but your project also depends on how your manager thinks personally of you. If you don't get on well, you might end up with projects no one wants to work on. - Great benefits from the company including good food, good 401k, health insurance etc. - Supportive environment for personal development.

    Cons

    - Recruiters are usually bad and unprofessional. They usually try to lowball you (as typical) but if you try to negotiate, they become aggressive and even rude. - Very unbalanced compensation even within the same teams. Study up your numbers well before signing up. - Secrecy - Very non-uniform groups within the company. There are big differences between different organizations so you might have totally different experience...

    Pros

    We work with geniuses - in every department, We create innovative products that thrill our customers and create new product categories - who else can say that?

    Cons

    ZERO ZERO ZERO work/life balance. Execs have been saying for YEARS that they understand and will make it better. But in actuality, it gets worse every year! It is obviously top management LIP SERVICE because if they meant it, they could fix it tomorrow. They have hundreds of BILLIONS in the bank. If they REALLY cared about employee work/life balance, they could bring aboard the right number of folks to...
