Current Employee - SDM Manager in Cupertino, CA

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

Pros

Great cafe, high compensation, nice equity price

Cons

- Managers suffering from mental instability or possibly on drugs
- Brown nosing definitely superior to intelligent work
- Very long hours and weekends, most job roles outside of engineering mind numbingly dull, a CEO who demands work before 6am everyday, & "accountability without control" (that's one of the core values they teach in Apple University management classes btw -- it's Apple culture to get screamed at for things that are beyond your control).
- Verbal abuse and intimidating workplace the norm -- everybody craps on somebody while getting crapped on by somebody else
- Internal infrastructure (basically everything IS&T builds) constantly breaking, management solution to scream at underlings without fixing root causes or problems
- Avoid at all costs unless you really need to money, like getting abused, or God forbid want to work someplace where you're expected to abuse your reports into mindless submission

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get some sleep, fire and replace all IS&T top management, apply roughly the same standards to internal applications and processes that you apply to finished products, stop hiring psychotic leftovers from The Gap

    I worked at Apple

    Pros

    I made the best friends of my entire life working here. Apple knows how to hire amazing people. This is the only pro.

    Cons

    I dealt with actual verbal abuse from both management and customers on a weekly if not daily basis. I was treated like a peon and a disposable member of an army rather than an actual human being who mattered. There were numerous HR issues with coworkers and managers that almost always got swept under the rug. Disgusting. I would never recommend working here to anyone. Every quarter, employees anonymously review management and ours consistently received a score UNDER 0%. I don't even know how you get a negative percent, but this job sucks so badly that it defies math.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop abusing your employees and learn how to run a business.
