    I worked at Apple full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great work environment. Growth focused. If you want to become a overall better person they provide the tools and guidance. Work hard, play hard mentality. Getting in at Apple isn't easy so it helps to know someone and they refer you. Some of the best leaders around work there, but not all leaders share the same vision. Work/life balance is very important to them and they give you lots of time to take off. Employee...

    Cons

    Not the most autonomy, although the managers try their best to convince you. Extremely competitive to move up, can become political. I've heard pay has improved although it definitely could have been more competitive for the work and the results. Depending on what market you are located in, there can be an extreme push for results.

    Advice to Management

    Be as transparent as possible. Continue to invest in your people. Communicate as effectively as you can.

    I have been working at Apple full-time for more than 10 years

    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...
