Working here is pretty fantastic. We make the best products, have some of the smartest, most driven and caring teams around, and our benefits are first rate. That said, the tech industry as a whole is pretty male dominated. There aren't a lot of females around for you to mentor or for you to try and identify a path to success with. Things like moving from an entry-level position to a mid level leader can be really tough, because there are so few women acting as mid or lower level leaders. I sometimes think they might not "see" you as an option to promote. The only other difficult part of the limited number of females, is the lack of females starting families. Most women are college aged themselves or have school age children. When I had questions on what pregnancy at work looked like or how maternity leave worked, I had to refer to HR and was unable to ask my peers. It wasn't the worst thing, and is hardly a knock on the company, but it can make it interesting for someone who is trying to find resources from friends. If you do start a family while at Apple though ...the maternity leave is great. I was on leave for four paid months bonding with my little one!

There is great support for women here. This excellent environment is built around mutual respect and what I'd call "gender-agnosticism": people deal with each other simply as people, for the most part, not "men" or "women." As long as you're doing your job, it doesn't matter who or what you are. Don't be timid or scared. Speak your mind (politely and respectfully). Ask questions; don't be afraid of looking stupid. If you're hired, that means they think you've got the stuff; they won't hold a "stupid" question against you. Go ahead and blaze trails; come up with your own ideas and get them in front of your managers. However, don't expect all your ideas to win. Sometimes you have to turn around, drop your great idea, and come up with a new one. My department is very supportive of maternity leave. They've been known to allow moms to extend their leave beyond 16 weeks (although you only get paid for the 16, so extra time is on your dime).

I have been there for 15 years. Once we decided to grow the family, our benefits made it so easy. Especially for being older and getting pregnant was not easy. Apple was flexible and benefits made it possible to actually do something I would not have been able to do on my own. Once I returned from maternity leave I was able to attain a work from home position. More recently I am back on campus working in a different role, but once again find myself wanting to work from home. My leadership team is seeing solutions to help this happen for me. I live about an hour from work so the drive has since taken its toll. My performance and reputation I'm certain have helped make this possible.

There is definitely still a disparity between the amount and male and female employees and leadership. But the more Apple continues to stay true to their promise of diversity, I'm hopeful that will change. There are opportunities for women to move up, but it can seem discouraging when you don't see as many women in leadership positions. Apple states they try hard to be diverse, and they do to a certain extent. But it can still prove difficult to get promoted as a woman, especially on the technical side. I’ve worked in stores in the south and it’s much worse there, all male managers. Better on the west coast. Still needs improvement.
