I have been working at Apple full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

gym, cafeteria, nice office, excellent benefits, matching 401K, education assistance, employee stock purchase discount

Cons

current management has manipulated commission structure to tighten the gap between bottom and top performers. Much harder to have a stellar year compared to previous years

Advice to Management

don't kill the sales culture, loosen up the sales comp plan and allow for a few outliers to make good money to inspire the other salesmen

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

    Pros

    Apple employees are valued very much by other employers. Next job is always easy. Opportunity to work on latest technology.

    Cons

    Work resembles that of a start up without enough rewards. Long work hours. Employees are loyal to company, but company does not seem to care about employee retention. In product development groups, employee turn around is high. In iPod group where I worked, on average every month there would be about 40-50 employees leaving the company and approximately same number would join as well.

    Advice to Management

    Provide better benefits and improve satisfaction of employees than just promoting pride of working for Apple.

    Pros

    I think it is a great company to work with. The location is good too.
