Current Employee - Customer Relations Advisor in Cork (Ireland)

I have been working at Apple full-time (less than an year)

Pros

The job is ok and easy enough but not that challenging or interesting.
Benefits and pay are ok and there are decent discounts.

Cons

It can be hard to work in customer care if you don't stand behind the management decisions.
It is ok for a call center job but not much more than that.

    I have been working at Apple full-time

    Pros

    Very good job satisfaction, high performing stocks, challenging work.

    Cons

    The review is entirely about IT.

    Very political environment. Lots of back stabbing/finger pointing. Fearful/threatening environment, incompetent middle management who drive away good talent for political sake, no room to make mistakes which kills creativity. Upper management / HR is very arrogant as the company is doing extremely well. Not so great compensation/poor benefits compared to many other big companies in the Silicon valley. Upper management is always trying to please the executives and in turn forget to respect employees. Poor people management skills in the middle management. Inexperienced directors.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't punish every mistake/failure as it kills creativity. Employees will tend to be very defensive in such environment. Don't be arrogant b'cos the company is doing well.

    Pros

    It's second to Google. Depending on the department you report to, depends on your happiness.

    Cons

    If you have read Steve Jobs Biography, that mentality still exists. a $100 billion company operating like a $10 billion.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A happy employee will walk the extra mile for you. Stop micro-managing!
