I worked at Apple full-time (More than a year)

Pros

I enjoyed working at Apple since there was purpose (a Unix-driven OS with a great front-end GUI, consolidated Sony-like "family" of product-line, a strong leader (Steve Jobs), and of course great success in the retail market, a good framework for designing software.)

Cons

The negatives for Cupertino are many. It is part of a largish valley that has bad air,
immense traffic, horrid housing and rental costs, and a cultural milieu which has
aggressive immigrants raising housing and rental prices, on-purpose. The area
is essentially unaffordable!!! The "boutique towns" along the peninsula do not
impress. The East Bay is dangerous. It is hard to find a place to relax in the "Bay Area".

Advice to Management

Divest yourself of your large bonuses and options/restricted stock units and GIFT them to your employees for you are NOTHING without them!!!! Renounce your too-high salaries and take
$1 per year!!!! Be like Jobs and stop following his advice to not be like him. That's fatal for the firm!

    I worked at Apple part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Amazing place to work for obvious reasons. You get what you put into your work and can move up if willing to work hard

    Cons

    I worked at an Apple store in a huge city so I am not sure if same pro above relates to smaller stores
