    Working on great products makes up for lackluster employee benefits

    I worked at Apple as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    When you're working at Apple, you believe that you are working on some of the greatest products possible. And those around you feel the same way. Apple's constant claims about attention to detail and pursuit of perfection aren't just PR - there's a drive within each employees to not cut corners and to obsess over pixel amounts.

    Cons

    The heavy compartmentalization of teams makes you feel disconnected from the rest of the company. And software engineers aren't allowed to work on any code outside of Apple, which makes you feel restricted.

    I worked at Apple full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    They create an environment that allows you to build great relationships with your coworkers. Amazing benefits and good pay. They also paid for my school after a year.

    Cons

    It was very demanding and tough work at times. Sometimes I would get frustrated because of how much there was to do but they always provide the resources to help.

    I worked at Apple part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great pay. Work around your class schedule. Work from home. Managers are supportive. Lot of mentorship and development by both direct supervisors and continuous training. They often send gifts boost moral and create a sense of team.

    Cons

    Nothing really bad to say. The job itself can suck at times. Customers can be really demanding and rude. BUT, once you get into your routine, the few bad calls you get are easy to deal with.

    I worked at Apple as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Everyone in the company loves the product. It's also really exciting to be a part of a culture that is in the spotlight. Everyone wants to know what you're working on. The food is good and the people are awesome, too.

    Cons

    Need-to-know company and sometimes the secrecy can be hindering when trying to meet your co-workers.

    I worked at Apple as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Flexible hours and decent wage. I did enjoy the training modules and the weekend training in Cupertino was the most fun I've ever had! And the people that I meet on the trip were the greatest.

    Cons

    Too many objectives that it was hard to achieve everything. Didn't feel like I grew through the experience, wished there was more guidance along the way.

    I worked at Apple full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The camaraderie is like no where else. Your coworkers are family. Having your only goal be help as many people as possible as efficiently as possible was also great.

    Cons

    It was non stop. The only non-busy hours in that store were after closing and before opening.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As I was on my way out, upper management was shifting and I have only heard good things about the changes.
