Apple can be a great place to work, be prepared to 'make your own way' and drive your career there.

Sales Associate (Former Employee) Cupertino, CA

ProsGreat products, as sales person its wonderful to be able to represent the best, campus life is good (great food, beautiful surroundings, and the occasional party/fun activity at the main lawn). Compensation and overall benefits (matching 401K, stock purchase when the stock is rising :-)) are definitely competitive. Smart people and overall the company feels 'well run', they deliver great products somewhat on-time, they market these products well. Management seems relatively flat and so you can know/meet the top execs and that is cool.

ConsThere is this overall 'secrecy' feel that is weird - and I think it permeates many many aspects of the company from engineering to marketing to sales - so you are often wondering if you are supposed to know something and not talk about it, etc. and it makes for a sometimes uncomfortable environment. Not all mangers are great (some are egomaniacs intent on self-promotion and 'kissing up' and/or micromangers) and if one of them is your boss, bummer for you. Work hours can be significant (its not an HP 9-5 type of place to work).

Advice to Senior ManagementYou've run an incredible company these last 8-10 years, congratulations, I'm awed. Perhaps have somewhat more consistent policy (across the entire company) for giving anonymous feedback on management so can hear feedback from those of us choking under bad middle/lower management.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
