I worked at Apple

Pros

Apple in general is a really exciting company to work for. Not only are their products are amazing but the camaraderie was unlike anything i've ever experienced before. I felt like I was apart of an amazing team that worked hard to give people top notch products and services.

Cons

To be honest, the customers sucked. People came in acting super condescending and rude. I mean sometimes you would get those great transactions and get someone really excited about a product and then the next thing you're doing is dealing with someone who hates you, who hates apple and just wants to complain. It's also a fast paced and busy environment and a lot of customers were rude about how busy it was.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more accessible to employees at the bottom. Learn to develop better people skills. Be more realistic when it comes to product development schedules and what's feasible to build better employee morale.

    I have been working at Apple

    Pros

    - decent quality, health options in on-site cafe
    - on-site gym
    - minimal dress code
    - accepting, non-discriminatory environment
    - nice corporate discount on most Apple products

    Cons

    - minimal dress code (Bathrobe guy, I'm talking to you!)
    - senior management apparently lives in a different reality than the rest of us
    - too many senior managers hired from the outside = change in corporate culture, and not for the better

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop bringing in outsiders for senior management positions. All they do is change things for the sake of change, and often this winds up screwing things up. Also, stop re-branding us with stupid, meaningless job titles (like "Advisor"... it's just downright insulting.)
