    I have been working at Apple full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great Benefits, great co-workers, job security

    Cons

    Highly political, egos need to be amply stroked to get anything done internally. Management often nowhere to be found.

    Advice to Management

    Help us help you. As part of support our job is to interact with customers. At times our tools barely function. We go on a near yearly rotation of support tools with each iteration seemingly tested only for what should work, not tested to see what makes it break.

    As far as the customer facing aspect of things go, spend more time fixing broken products rather than struggling for the next big thing. iTunes is a woeful nightmare, features such as match, wishlist, season passes, allowance, all of them only partially functioning. Then what rolls out, iTunes Radio, instead of fixing day one bugs in the Mac App Store.

    Apple was around for a long long time without having to constantly cater to the "What's hot now" crowd. We were around because of the quality of the product we released. Now, our focus is in a million different directions and fixing our problems doesn't seem to be one of those directions.
