Fast paced - innovative environment & work with highly skilled professionals
Sr. Manager, Learning and Development (Former Employee) – Cupertino, CA – December 7, 2017
When asked, "How is it working at Apple?", I usually respond, "Intense". It's a fast paced & innovative environment, and you work with creative and highly skilled colleagues. There are no slackers at Apple - one would not last. You must be willing to be innovative and independent because as a new employee there are no organization charts, nor written processes. They feel that would stiffen creativity and Apple wants to see how you handle your job function and what you come up with. It's an exciting place to work, but not for everyone. You have to be willing to think out of the box and respond/react quickly and timely. The downside is many can burn out as the pace often cannot be sustained indefinitely.
