Mixed feelings about working at Apple

  • Work/Life Balance
  • Career Opportunities
  • Comp & Benefits
  • Senior Management
Current Employee - Engineer in Cupertino, CA
Current Employee - Engineer in Cupertino, CA
Approves of CEO

Pros

Great senior level management, I can see how Steve Jobs gets voted the Best CEO. Streamlined operations, very lean, disciplined and focused. You feel proud working for the company.

Cons

Can sometimes be over political at lower level management. Crap rains down from the top, managers will try to cover their ass, tries to shovel the blame to others outside the group. Depending on the group you're in, there might very limited room for career growth.

Advice to Management

Not much I can say here... if upper management doesn't enforce the strict discipline, the company would not be as successful as it is today. So the politics that happens at the lower level is really inevitable. There's no perfect place to work.

    • Work/Life Balance
    • Career Opportunities
    • Comp & Benefits
    • Senior Management
    Current Employee - Account Executive in Charlotte, NC
    Current Employee - Account Executive in Charlotte, NC
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    "Very Cool Products" you will be the coolest guy in town as the "Apple Rep/Neighbor/Relative/Friend" Hard working colleagues. Good health and life benefits

    Cons

    No balance with life and work. California requires you to work on their hours even if you are located in the East Coast. Low pay since you have the privilege to work at Apple.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your lower employees as if they work for Apple and are not the enemy.
