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 Management

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

    Pros

    Great culture of incredibly intelligent and passionate peop, plus good benefits for even part timers, like stock purchase plan, hardware and software discounts on not just apple products, but third part accessories.

    Cons

    Can be difficult to get in without an inside connection.

    Advice to Management

    Look from within before going outside when hiring. Also, allow more time for training.

    Pros

    If you apply yourself and go above and beyond, there is no limit to where you can go, literally. Apple has positions all over the globe, great benefits while simultaneously offering lot's of opportunities for personal growth and education.

    Cons

    Apple is a big small company, sometimes it was hard to get my individual issue heard and addressed by corporate. When it came to things that effected everyone, however, store management was more than responsive.
