    Great place to work which attracts smart, intelligent people but politics are everywhere.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Cupertino, CA (US)

    ProsWorking at Apple is a great experience as it is one of the iconic companies of this era. It is a very cool place to work with many of the perks that Silicon Valley is known for. People are friendly and helpful and there is a real passion for the kind of products that makes Apple what it is today.

    ConsWork life balance is non-existent and there is something of a clash between the old Apple and the new. With such explosive growth comes a whole bunch of issues that make things more challenging than they should be. It is a very political environment.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIn my experience Senior Management does not support their teams as they should.
