    Pros

    Amazing benefits for employees; full health and dental plans, great stock options, discounts on hundreds of products and services.
    Apple encourages you to pursue hobbies and interests and will even contribute towards any classes or memberships (including gym memberships).
    Discounts on their products too is also a great benefit.

    Cons

    Days are often very long and draining and sometimes that can mean a lack of variety. Particularly with the technical roles, days can be quite long and monotonous, particularly during high velocity days.

    Advice to Management

    Avoid changing the 'focus' of the day/week/month. Each week the focus changes and new plans are put in place, but these are often very short lived.
