    I have been working at Apple full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    I'm able to be myself and everyday learn things that make me a better human being.

    Cons

    It takes many years to grow in terms of promotions. Work-life balance for Leaders and Managers is not the best.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote from within so that the Apple culture remains. Too many managers are coming from food industry and other retailers that don't understand the culture of the brand.

    Former Employee - Manufacturing Intern in Cupertino, CA (US)

    I worked at Apple as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    As an intern I had the opportunity to work on projects I did not think I would be permitted to anywhere else. The trust that was placed in me as an intern to execute on a critical project definitely allowed me to grow immensely through the experience

    Cons

    Terribly demanding work. I was working 60 - 80 hours a week and between late night work calls, and unreasonable deadlines I found myself quite exhausted by the end of the experience. It varies from team to team but while other interns were enjoying the California weather an experiencing the area I was consistently working 10 - 12 hours a day.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Everyone that works there is very smart and efficient. Just hire more people. Teams are TOO lean and that is the main reason why most people leave after a couple of years.

    Pros

    Phenomenal benefits
    Leadership really cares about your well-being.
    You have the authority to make decisions that are best for the customer.

    Cons

    You will always work weekends.
    Sometimes promotions internally are more difficult than being hired externally for the same role.
