I have been working at Apple

Pros

I've worked at 5 Fortune 100 Companies, Apple is the best...very focused, very lean
You will work hard and your resume will be the bomb
I am constantly in meetings where i am the dumbest guy in the room
This is the most efficiently run company on the planet, buy and hold the stock,
This is company has an incredible work ethic
Nobody will keep up with Apple over the long run, except maybe Google, and that is just a maybe
Steve Jobs is the Thomas Edison of this century
You can find a cool spouse here
You will be pushed toward excellence beyond your current abilities
Video games and beer bashes...it is kinda like you never left university
Your kids, parents, and friends will think you are cool
Lot's to be proud about here
Best corporate cafeteria on the planet

Cons

Total Comp less than expected, but offset by the stock, it will continue to grow 30% a year
Not big on training or rotational programs...more like sink or swim

Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have been working at Apple

    Pros

    Work at Apple on the future.

    Cons

    they are changing most salary employees to hourly. working on some products much harder than others with little rewards

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Middle management is incredibly poor. Employees who have been at Apple previous to the iPod are taken advantage of.

    I worked at Apple

    Pros

    they take care of you, great benefits, great employees, and great company. they work with you so that you know what do with different approaches and steps.

    Cons

    managers are horrible. they didn't want to listen. they at least got 5 people forcefully to quit from what i've seen.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    HIRE THE RIGHT MANAGERS AND THE RIGHT MANAGEMENT TEAM. IT'S NOT FAIR WHEN THEY DON'T LISTEN FOR YOUR FEEDBACK AND REALLY HURTS THE PROFILE OF THE STORE AS AN EMPLOYEE TO SEE WHAT REALLY GOES ON.
