    I worked at Apple full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great company culture
    Great talent
    Great execution
    You feel like you can accomplish anything you need to at Apple
    You get to learn the "secret sauce" that makes Apple great

    Cons

    Senior Execs have all been their since the iPod days
    Career advancement is slow
    Career development / coaching not institutionalized, so you are at the mercy of your boss

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make career development, training, and coaching a bigger priority

    Former Employee - Senior Software Engineer in Cupertino, CA (US)

    I worked at Apple full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Very challenging environment, where you might impact millions of people, do great things and "change the world" in your own little way. You'll learn very valuable lessons in how a big company is still trying to operate as a startup

    Cons

    Secrecy is a killer, the more you give to the job the more is expected from you. no chance of life balance here. Ever wondered why Google always makes the the top ten of the best companies to work for but Apple never get even close? well there is a reason...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employees are your best asset, cultivate that relationship and respect them.
