I interned at Apple this summer (2013). I was surprised at lack of diversity.

Pros

The internship was a great experience. We were introduced to the Apple culture, plus had executive speakers, and other fun activities. The company also provided housing.

Cons

The only problem I noticed at Apple was the diversity. I am a non-person of color but realized that there weren't many people of color in our intern class. It was quite noticeable especially during our intern events. There were like 5 interns of color out of hundreds of interns. During lunch at main campus, I never did see hardly any people of color sitting at a table. It was kind of odd to say the least. I thought Apple corporate diversity would resemble the retail store diversity. I could tell the interns of color noticed it too. I was talking to one of them and the intern mentioned visiting Google campus and that it was way more diverse. I recently visited Google at lunch for an interview and my friend was right, it’s a totally different feeling. Google’s executive leadership on the website even shows a person of color and a woman. I love Apple but sometimes wondered if it was by design (like their products). As a non-person of color, I felt Apple corporate Intern program could improve on this front. It was obvious that there isn't a voice pushing this in upper management. My 2 cents...

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Great intern program, bravo, but increase diversity of people of color...it just looks off.

    Pros

    It's full of very smart people. A lot of events are organised and there are extra benefits.
    The campus is nice, and Cafe Macs has really good fresh food.

    Cons

    In some occasions there is a bad management of the resources, and choice of employees is based on the friendship with the manager instead of on the capabilities of the employee. I didn't expect that from a company like Apple.
