Great spot to work

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Apple

ProsManager are nice and generous of their time. The salary is good compare to other jobs in the industry, Not alot of room for growth because so many applicants and lack of possibility

ConsValue are a little childish with the teenage attitude of the maangers. Employee are not taken seriously. Job is not for everyone because you need to fit in the "model"

Fantastic company from the top down

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Austin, TX

I worked at Apple full-time for more than 8 years

ProsGreat pay, lots of enthusiasm, great coworker support, employee-centric culture--all very different from the corporate culture that I had come from. All good!

ConsEvery department is different so Apple is a but like many companies in one. It can be difficult to move to another department once you have been hired into a certain department.

Advice to Senior ManagementPlease share your knowledge with your direct reports.

An awesome Work at Home opportunity

Tier I Technical Support Advisor (Former Employee)
Columbia City, IN

I worked at Apple part-time for less than a year

ProsLoved the discounts and the people that i worked with there, i would love to work with and hang out with any one of them again.

ConsNot able to get full time hours all the time, (hired in as part time not full time off the jump), and the lack of desire to allow you to help across multiple platforms if you had the knowledge like i did, (laptop and cell/tablet)

Advice to Senior ManagementMy Manager Geoff George was awesome. Nothing to add there.

Great place to work.

Embedded Software Engineer (Current Employee)
Cupertino, CA

I have been working at Apple full-time for more than 3 years

ProsLife as an Engineer is good at Apple. Challenging projects, good pay and benefits. A very stable company with long term vision. It's great seeing your products everywhere. Apple throws good parties (although they are getting a little crowded these days). Work-life balance is better than previous experiences I've had.

ConsIt's a big company so bureaucracy creep occurs.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep looking forward to the long term and don't get caught up in the quarterly reports.
