Pros

Free product depending on your group.

If you're truly driven by your work, then this is the place. It truly is a products, customers, and the numbers will follow sort of place.

Good health benefits, good on site benefits, subsidized good food. No matter how much vacation time you have saved up, the company still shuts down from Christmas to the day after New Years (but you might have to still work).

Cons

If you're not the type to take pride in saying, "I work for Apple" to people then this isn't the place for you.

If you can't handle ambiguity, this isn't the place for you.

If you want 9-6 with an hour lunch, 5 days a week, this isn't the place for you.

Everyone is so focused on delivering something great that the "process" isn't always reviewed, since there aren't many processes, the wheel gets reinvented.

Advice to Management

Sometimes it feels like employees are always there for Apple, but Apple isn't always there for the employees. That's really the case with any big company, but Apple is so successful and so lean, I don't think it'd take much to share a little more of the success.

    "Fun to be part of something great, but you won't get credit for much"

    Pros

    Very exciting products and a bright future.

    Cons

    Most employees are treated as replaceable parts.

    Advice to Management

    Employees want to have ownership but middle management is so busy managing up they don't allow workers the freedom to do their jobs proactively. Managers just don't trust their staff to make them look good to senior management... that's really your primary task.
