Former Employee - Anonymous in Cupertino, CA
Former Employee - Anonymous in Cupertino, CA
Approves of CEO

Pros

Benefits and time off. The benefits are very good. So is the time off and vacations. I also think there is good work life balance. California laws allow for great benefits. Steve Jobs is revered at the company. Is seems to be a great leader and everyone is excited about the products. Employee discounts on products are a plus too.

Cons

Stucture needed for a growing company. As the organization get bigger, the organization will need to change how they go to market and the processes that the organization employs. The organization opposes this becauses it changes the company culture, but there is a way to balance maintaining the culture with structure needed for a growing organization.

Advice to Management

Change is needed for a growing organization.

    Current Employee - Mac Specialist (Apple Store) in Chicago, IL
    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    The brand and reasonable discounts. People tend to be excited to hear you work there. Usually is fun to come to work and be able to interact with a wide range of people.

    Cons

    Overly secretive. Little to no room for advancement. The retail roles are extremely repetitive and at times nauseating. Great if you're a college student or something, but everyone else should steer clear (though to be fair, that's true of retail in general). I don't feel like I'm recognized for my hard work and am highly limited in the ways I can advance within the company.

    Advice to Management

    Great job with the products, not so good at managing people.

    Pros

    Independent work culture making you manage ur workload.....

    Cons

    Too vague in terms of processes making it frustrating sometimes to get in touch with the right people.... sometimes I wonder at the inefficiences with which we operate in terms of operations and still get such a healthy margin.... what would happen if we can tighten our processes... somehow vagueness is a doubel-edged sword here at apple.. it fosters great ideas sometimes but leads to ad-hoc actions a lot of times making the company lot of money.....

    Advice to Management

    Never expect yourself to stay in one role here for a very long time.... there are so many things to do.. if you are up to it, there would be no dearth of work and opportunities....
