    I worked at Apple full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    OK discounts on products and winter holiday shutdown period adds to your vacation days.

    Cons

    This review is for IS&T (IT) department.

    99% are Indian H1B visa contractors so practically there is no diversity. There is bad communication skills, heavy accent (very hard to understand email and verbal communication) and bad manners. Contractors tend to stick together so you have to watch your back. Vendors are not very technically savvy and mediocre and/or below-average developers/consultants. However, there are few exceptions. At times they speak Hindi (during meetings) so you might as well learn the language to fit in. Apple claims to hire the best of the best but it looks the opposite.

    Middle management does not have necessary skills to manage and in many occasions does not have proper training to manage people/projects.

    Terrible work environment and culture. Office space is very bad - crowded, noisy, bad air flow.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more permanent employees with CS background and change your permanent/consultant model.
