I have been working at Apple full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

-The stock purchase plan has been rewarding.
-My co-workers tend to be very high quality. The average tenure is much longer here than at other companies so I tend to think most of the employees are satisfied.
-The onsite caffe is great and serves healthy fare.
-Employee perks are numerous and generous. (beer bashes, BBQ cookoffs, etc.)

Cons

-Managers tend to "manage up".
-Lots of trendy business lingo without a lot of substance in some of them.
-The company can be greedy. Compensation plans change to drastically reduce employee income when it suits them.
-Culture is changing since Steve Jobs is gone

Advice to Management

Manage your employees instead of managing your spreadsheet. Build tools that help not only you but your employees do their jobs more effectively. Remember that other companies envy your talent pool.
