    I have been working at Apple full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Ability to work on some of the best hardware in the world. Ability to work from home occasionally. Excellent commuter benefits. Has a generous sick leave policy. Annual cost of living raises.

    Cons

    There are a whole lot of inexperienced managers here and there is no training to help them learn people management skills. They tend to promote good performers without any management skills and then don't help them obtain any.

    Advice to Management

    Really need to get some training for managers in people management skills. Far too many talented people are promoted to management positions and then find out they just have to sink or swim with no help to develop people management skills.

    I worked at Apple full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Most stores have leaders who really want you to succeed. Fun to work for and you can build strong friendships. Stay and do well, you can end up in Austin or Cupertino.

    Cons

    Not a perfect company. But then again, what company is?

    I have been working at Apple full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    We work with geniuses - in every department, We create innovative products that thrill our customers and create new product categories - who else can say that?

    Cons

    ZERO ZERO ZERO work/life balance. Execs have been saying for YEARS that they understand and will make it better. But in actuality, it gets worse every year! It is obviously top management LIP SERVICE because if they meant it, they could fix it tomorrow. They have hundreds of BILLIONS in the bank. If they REALLY cared about employee work/life balance, they could bring aboard the right number of folks to...
