    I have been working at Apple part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Everyone gets along. It's a perk of being a social retail gig plus you're always up to date with the newest technology. Benefits are amazing - affordable health insurance, transportation coverage, fun workplace.

    Cons

    With working for a prestigious company comes customers who expect top notch attention and service. Luckily my position didn't require a lot of customer interaction. I will say you meet all sorts of personalities at the Apple store.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More monetary compensation is always welcome. But to really move up at Apple, you need to be a top notch worker or have good relationships with your managers.

    I worked at Apple full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Apple is the type of place where you can do the best work of your life. They have all the resources and incredibly high expectations.

    They also pay their employees well, provide tons of training opportunities, and have great products to work on. In other companies, I sometimes had to compromise an idea to bring it in under budget. That very rarely happens to truly great ideas at Apple.

    Additionally, I found that my personal values were very in line with the overall compass of the company.

    Cons

    It's exceptionally intense. So respect for personal time can exist as long as you work for the right person. If you don't, that can be a bad thing.

    Also as I understand it now, the group I was in has grown so big it's lost some of its magic. They've had a hard time maintaining the consistency of greatness that was a little easier when the team was smaller.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on quality. Make sure you're bringing in great folks and stay true to what has made Apple so incredible.

    I have been working at Apple full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Each R&D org has its own culture. I love mine, but I've heard stories from other groups that sound unpleasant to work for.

    It's such a huge company that there are always positions in other groups if you are interesting in changing jobs.

    Cons

    The secrecy gets in the way of open collaboration.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I've been pretty impressed with the upper mgmt. I'm not in any position to offer advice there.
