    I worked at Apple for more than a year

    Pros

    - Large budgets make seemingly impossible options available for exploration - Engineering is done thoroughly and no corners are cut - Opportunities to take initiative and leadership - Opportunity to learn and work with advanced processes - Team dynamic is positive, low-stress, and the emphasis is put on personal health over job performance - Free dinner, frequent celebrations - Feels good to work at a company... that has good core values regarding the environment and human resources, domestic and foreign.

    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 make that issue dissolve. Sick of hearing the lies. Just don't lie about wanting to fix it, when they clearly DON'T care
