Former Employee - Finance Intern in Cupertino, CA

I worked at Apple

Pros

relaxed corporate environment, very flexible, happy people work there from all walks of life

Cons

Flat management means that incompetent people may get promoted to manager status (so many managers!), middle management problem where it may take a long time for someone to get promoted beyond manager and they get disgruntled, and there is a lack of constructive feedback, interns are often set up to fail since there are so few employment opportunities available

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Just because you can't rise above a management position doesnt mean you should sabotage or hold others back, thats my opinion and it was shared by several colleagues.

    Cons

    - Desperate Self-Interest rules the day
    - Low pay precludes use of employee discount
    - Though the official word is there is freedom. Others around you are fearful
    - Difficult to work across teams as mistrust is common.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize those non-engineers that have skill and experience. And listen to their assertions.
