The worst place to work
Payroll Analyst (EMEA) (Former Employee) –  Cork10 April 2019
The payroll team in Apple, Cork is one of the worst places i have ever worked. They treat the employees like slaves and there is a lot of favouritism going on. There is a blame-shifting technique that managers and team leads master and follow without a pinch of guilty.
If you love your life, then run away from this place. They boast about how much they care about their employees but it is all a white lie. 3 employees resign from a particular team within 3 months because of the manager. If you think about complaining to the HR or ER team, forget about it. The HR team is shady to an extend i can't even explain. They are rude and insensitive and are worse than con artists.
The perks that you receive in Apple will not sum up to the stress and depression yo undergo in that place.
There is zero work-life balance and the payroll analysts go home every day at 6 or sometimes 7 (remember that the shift ends at 4.30). The management boasts about the lack of micromanagement but that is a big white lie. They monitor everything you do and use that against you. Dont even think about taking sick leaves when you are on probation because they will surely use that against you. There is no training or induction for you and you are supposed to do work from the day of your joining and higher management dont seem to care even if you complain about it unless something goes wrong. And when something goes wrong, get ready to take responsibility because they want scapegoats.
Pros
Cheap food
Cons
Long work hours, Blame shifting policy, No work life balance, Immense work pressure, Favouritism, No training, No respect or recognition, Expected to work and take responsibility for the mistakes of management.

Apple Developer Support (Former Employee) –  County Cork25 March 2019
Many managers at Apple are not properly trained and don't have a college education or executive education which makes them unable to understand the real problems, some times is better being friend than having real talent: hence many bad mid-level managers. Apple is a great company but if it wants to grow even more it will need a professional body of employees.

Good company and good company with advantages and equality.
Company respectful and nice colleagues but you should prove your hard work as well.

Nice place to work
Training Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Cork26 February 2019
Apart from the role it's self, being part of the company was a fantastic experience as the company culture is very cool and the onsite catering facilities are excellent. Parking in Cork city centre isn't great at all when you have to pay 8 euro a day to park on the top floor of Carrolls quay which can be a little dodgy dependng who is sleeping in the doorway of the car park since homelessness has sadly spiked.
Pros
Excellent catering services
Cons
Super busy - not enough hours in the day

Good people to work with
Contract Project Manager (Former Employee) –  Cork24 January 2019
Very good people to work with - knowledgeable, committed, professional. Know their areas of expertise well.
Do tend to be focused in a narrow frame of reference only.
And you'll need to work across time zones with California a lot.
Pros
Very good lunches!

At Home Advisor (Former Employee) –  Home11 January 2019
Good place to work. Worked from home so can't say much about the offices, but the management was very supportive. The perks were good as well. They would send out gift packages during the busy times.

Good benefits, great environment
Customer Relations - German (Former Employee) –  Cork9 January 2019
Somewhat halted progress, in career development, cloudy updates. Very high pressure on numbers, even when rationale is invalid.

Cork is not big enough, but Apple makes it enough surprisingly. Work culture is a given by them.
Pros
Amazing benefits, great environment
Cons
0 payment raise, cloudy options, no real career development

Unable to recognise real talent
Technical Support Advisor (Former Employee) –  Cork4 January 2019
Talent doesn't come by easily and inexpensively. The company would rather hire cheaper labour than invest in talent, experience and knowledge that could advance the company. Not the best strategy, if all they think of is how to save on labour...

Nothing but compliments to say about them, a company I'd love to work for again.

The salary was generous, the managers kind and understanding, a wonderful experience overall.

AppleCare Soporte al Desarrollador (Former Employee) –  County Cork13 December 2018
es un trabajo de monos, te dicen lo que tienes que decir, que palabras usar, como usarlas, vamos que puedes dejar tu cerebro en casa. Controlan todos tus descansos, hasta los minutos que vas al baño, hasta llegando a recibir emails de tu manager diciendo que has estado 4 minutos en baño :S

Working from Home
Customer Relations Advisor (Former Employee) –  Cork3 December 2018
I was working from home so I wouldn't have workplace culture.The management team was excellent also the trainer since day 1 they made us feel that we already belong which for me is very essential the sense that you belong, you are part of a team with different types of background, they made you feel that you actually matter and nobody is better than any one. The hardest part of the job was the hours in my opinion. The most enjoyable part of the job was to be able to help all the Customers and they the customers were very satisfied with your work and input that you do.
