Decent job. Easy and pays nicely for what you’re doing. Management is alright, can sometimes be understaffed which is frustrating. Benefits are very good. Not secure job though

Don’t be blinded by lies. I have worked for companies that are nothing compared to the size of this place and have been treated with respect. Discount is the only thing good about working here. Management are a disgrace. Brown noses and favorites that all get ahead. Having to beg for time off. 8 minutes to use the loo all day and micromanaged on stats is enough to make you sick. Apple is now a complaints dept since Steve Jobs died as the releases of buggy software every year and unreliable devices created AppleCare.

Apple is an amazing place to work. Innovation central. In house technology evolving, but slow to adapt to change. People are amazing - wonderful energy and intelligence. Nature and pace of work results in tough work/life balance.

Overall Apple seems like a great place to work as a full time permanent employee. But as a contractor you will be treated differently. Contractors are expected to perform at the same level but without access to the necessary tools to complete basic tasks in their role. And will be penalised when basic tasks cannot be completed. In IS&T itself, attitudes to contractors are very unhealthy and conducive to a passive aggressive and bullying workplace. Management styles for mid level managers are outdated and counter productive.

In some examples frightening behaviours that suggest mental health issues by both managers and staff. Dept/Company culture and not following human Resources best practices and or legislation remain to be a huge risk for the business brand.


In 6 months I witnessed 4 different melt downs, and I am aware of 3 people who walked out of their roles because of manager behaviours. Very disappointing!

The company demands 200% of you and gives you 300% back. You will build a new family and friends for life. Work is stressful and very demanding but all the benefits that are given really show you how much the company cares for its employees.
Pros
Salary, Benefits, the people
Cons
Stressful, extremely fast paced

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.

Great Company, but the Management can DEFINITELY improve.

Lots of cool benefits and discounts, but is all about the numbers. Work-life balance is more inclined to work than life.
Pros
Great benefits
Cons
Management are bullies

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

Managers are ok to listen after your requests all the time and available.

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

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!

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

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.
