I worked at Apple full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

The salaries are competitive for the area and for the industry (software development). Benefits are pretty good and lunches and dinners and easily available and affordable.

Cons

The Mac has been around for decades. But Apple still has a bit of a startup mentality. Depending of what group or department one works in it may be difficult to get weekends off or real vacations of more than 1 week.

Advice to Management

How about a little down time between projects to give employees opportunity to avoid burnout.

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

    Pros

    Discounts. Health benefits for retail after 6 months.

    Cons

    Management is an absolute atrocity - Conniving, heartless, and without morals. Forced to work long hours without legal breaks, quick turn-arounds "clopening", complete disregard for state/federal workplace health and safety. Disrespect, no appreciation, completely unvalued.

    Advice to Management

    Show your employees respect, and appreciation - mine never did. Jump in and be a part of it, don't just stand idle laughing as they drown in consumer purgatory.
