    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 have been working at Apple full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Amazing company with amazing people. If you work hard and do your job, you will move up. This company is all about career development if you do your part and work hard. The work is extremely satisfying and I love what I do. Love the comfort of working in my home. They also send lots of t-shirts, mugs, totes, and other cool stuff that truly make you feel appreciated. Best place to work.

    Cons

    None, other than have a more strict policy on hiring. Weed out the clowns who don't have a strong work ethic and are just there to try and get out of working.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great job. It's nice to see a company that cares about it's employees and their career development.

    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 full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Amazing people all working to achieve extraordinarily high standards of work. Personalities are often larger than life with razor sharp business acumen and commitment to doing great things.

    Cons

    Organization often allows senior leaders with personality challenges to run their organizations with little regard for junior managers. Accountability at senior levels is paramount, but less senior managers should not be victimized by character deficiencies at the top.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great work.

    Not much training for the job. Most of the times, need to explore and learn by oneself. Long working hours. Usually worked overtime. Not much opportunity for promotion.
