It seems effects are applied before the layer style. To me that doesn't seem logical or intuitive. Is there any way to change that?

Thanks in advance!

Precompose the layer with the layer style then apply the effects to the precomposed layer

Declan's answer is the right one.

Layer styles are applied as the last step in the render pipeline, along with blending modes. They are much more similar to blending modes than to effects under the hood.
