    I worked at Apple full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great office Comfortable and safe working environment

    Cons

    Apple is the worst company when it comes to supporting their own employees. I was cheated off some money by Apple’s health care provider, United Healthcare during my wife’s pregnancy. As per the policy, they were also supposed to cover all pregnancy costs but that’s not what happened. They refused to acknowledge a heavy duty bill of NIPT on massively stupid grounds. They said the woman in question needs to be over the...

    I have been working at Apple full-time

    Pros

    Apple is really a model corporate citizen. Everything is not always perfect, however, it’s heart is its identity and that permeates every aspect of the businesses.

    Cons

    This is less a criticism of Apple as much as a revelation about companies this big. That is, it’s very easy to get lost in the shuffle.

    I have been working at Apple full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Apple’s philosophy, concern for the environment, inclusivity and products are to be admired. Benefits are good, and they are a class act.

    Cons

    What is unfortunate in the Apple, PIE group is how many truly bad managers there are and how rampant cronyism is within the company. HR issues are handled poorly if they get any response at all. As a result, you have to put up with bullying, favoritism and as a PM, you absolutely have no voice; your concerns carry zero weight. People get promoted because of who brought them into the company (there is a large Yahoo contingent...

    Advice to Management

    Stay away from allowing managers to hire groups if their friends. It doesn’t allow for a fair playing field and creates resentment amongst employees.

    I worked at Apple full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great pay, prestige, nice to be around the latest technology. Great coworkers.

    Cons

    Terrible management at the Market and Divisional level. Claims to be a people company and steamrolls those people for results. Several leaders out due to stress leave is a solid indication of how poorly things are managed by mid to upper level management.

    Advice to Management

    Get more involved in the day to day. We get yelled at daily from customers and struggle to stay afloat. Get security for your locations so locals don't come in and jack product every day.

    I worked at Apple full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Diversity in the workplace. Discounts on Apple products

    Cons

    Working in a big company like Apple was always a dream since my business school days. That dream turned sour when I joined their Cupertino office back in 2013. I was in my 6th month of pregnancy and was adviced to undergo NIPT by my doctor. Apple’s health care provider, United Healthcare, refused to accept my claim for it by stating I was not eligible for it as I was under the age of 35! This was totally unbelievable!...

    Advice to Management

    If anybody from Apple is reading this; please do all your employees a favor and get rid of United Healthcare. You are not only wasting your money but also not helping your employees in any way at all.
