Current Employee - Project Manager in Austin, TX

Pros

Most days I am proud to say that I work for Apple. The products speak for themselves and it is great to be able to use them. The work environment can be very invigorating as well as mentally challenging.

Cons

Salaried employees are expected to work 50-60 hours a week. Advancement opportunities minimal for upper level positions. External applicants are being hired with less experience & fewer qualifications over well-qualified employees. Internal candidates for those same positions are then asked to provide training for the new Apple employee.

Advice to Management

Look to promote from within Apple. There are many extremely talented, hard-working current employees that Apple could benefit from promoting. Current employees are leaving which is a loss to Apple.

    Pros

    Apple makes really great products - being a part of that is rewarding in and of itself. Now that the company is doing so well, we're really an 800 lb. gorilla when it comes to vendor relationships - it's great to have other companies bending over backwards to get your business.

    Cons

    Sometimes even annual performance reviews get missed - that means not a lot of feedback about career growth or professional development. If you have upwardly mobile aspirations, Apple is probably not going to help you out very much. Sometimes you'll feel like you can't get the information you need to do your job.

    Advice to Management

    Give up on this unit tracking garbage. It doesn't solve the problem you're trying to solve, and it makes everybody's job harder.
