According to this article by Emily Jackson in the The Toronto Star, Apple doesn't sound like a fun company to work for. At least, that's what Adam Lashinsky, Fortune's senior editor, will tell you in his latest book, Inside Apple: How America's Most Admired -- and Secretive -- Company Really Works, based on interviews of former Apple employees -- few named, most anonymous.
And it's not very much fun, according to Lashinsky's sources, although they say that's not necessarily a bad thing.
"If you're a die-hard Apple geek, it's magical. It's also a really tough place to work," one source said.
On top of that, the pay is no better than other tech jobs. A senior executive would make a competitive salary -- about $200,000 per year with a chance for a $100,000 bonus, according to Lashinsky -- but not the millions that Silicon Valley engineers are notorious for pocketing.
