"It's very gender-diverse and has great benefits. There's even domestic violence leave, which is stunning in a good way to me. It doesn't force people to use sick time or vacation time to do things like relocate, file for a protective order, or other things. "

"There is a workaholic culture that is still present from the Steve Jobs days. Depending on your team/org, the pressure to always be available (almost like “on call”, but you get no overtime/compensation reward), can be really strong (working daily nights and weekends). Upper level management are “on” all the time and this culture trickles down to expectations for individual contributors as well. While I have not experienced any unfair treatment based on gender, the poor work life balance makes me feel pretty miserable. Several of my female colleagues with children find it really difficult to pick up/drop off their children to school and attend extracurricular events with them because, while management may be flexible, they end up needing to just work way more overtime to do work and over compensate any time they spent attending to their family needs outside of core work hours anyway. It can be especially bad depending on the team because there are work responsibilities and tasks that are just expected to be done before and after core office hours. The work life balance just eats up so much family time that I don’t recommend it."

"My advice for women interested in this company is to try to come in at a level where you will be satisfied and if you get an opportunity to move up, it's just icing on the cake. If you come in at the bottom, you will be hard pressed to ever have an opportunity to move up. Many come here to take advantage of the good healthcare benefits. There is not a lot of work-life balance because of pressure constantly put on you by management. Many say they are so exhausted when they get off work that they cannot enjoy their days off and the battles at work bleed into personal relationships. It is a very authoritarian structure that doesn’t allow for much “thinking outside of the box” among the lower levels. They basically want you to be robotic drones who just take orders. They ask for feedback, but whether anything real and truly meaningful is done with that feedback is another story. I find management to be abrasive, combative, and dwelling in a long line within the ranks of “yes” men & women. It’s not a place where you can truly be creative and outstanding and feel like you have accomplished something. I’ve stopped talking because they don’t want to hear any voices but their own. These are the new "Masters of the Universe,” or so they believe. With that kind of hubris, you’ll be lucky to see much change. "

"There are relatively few women at this company in leadership roles, and they cannot possibly relate to those way down the line within the lower ranks who barely get by on minimal wages, who are overlooked time and again when opportunities arise, who are constantly pestered because they went out of the way to provide good customer service, but it caused a metric or two to fall out of line. Those who do sit at higher levels, based on my more than five years of experience at the company, don’t do very much to help women below them, who have a significant amount of experience and education that is highly transferrable, move up and into more appropriate roles within the organization. There is talk, but little action. It was even suggested that this may not be the right company for me by a more senior person who joined the organization a few years after I began. Well it certainly is a bureaucracy without a doubt. In some roles, there are up to 10 layers of management between the worker and the CEO. I can’t help but wonder if women at this company tend not to help other women because there are so few opportunities for women in general in key roles where one can grow and their compensation with grow as well, that they fear they could be displaced. My father always told me that women don't help each other and the longer I live, the more I find this to be true. There is too much jealousy. You really have to know your playground, and toiling in lower-level work, working under a string of managers who have less education and experience than you is only going to leave you feeling trapped. I have to say I am extremely disappointed by what I have seen and experienced at this company. I don't hold out a whole lot of hope for it to change in a meaningful way. There is a lot of incompetency and jealousy within the rank and file and it's not a place where I can see myself spending much more time. For a company that carries an outward appearance of seeming to be so perfect and put together, there are a lot of skeletons in the closet. Age discrimination seems to be a huge problem at this company; if you are over 30, you may have a difficult time unless you have a sponsor. This company really caters to the youth. "

"Apple's claims that they value diversity are PR only and their numbers must be inflated by including Apple Store employees. In my division at Apple there is one woman on each team of ~20-30 people. There is no training for employees about diversity, or unconscious bias - which goes a long way to explaining their failure to hire any women. I've had to endure humiliating comments from my workmates about my hair and clothes. I'm tasked with menial and uninteresting work despite having a PhD and 10 years of work experience, complaints to my manager about my inconsistent workload go nowhere and I've had to watch male colleagues straight out of grad school get promoted ahead of me. The company Christmas party featured a scavenger hunt where one of the tasks was to line up 4 women in red dresses and take a photo. Another task was to "smear a man's face with lipstick" and photograph it. Women are viewed as objects of curiosity here and not seen as equals. HR organize a "diversity bash" to celebrate Apple's diversity. The clumsy title of this event conveys how interested Apple HR are in making this a better place to work. Stay away, it's not worth it."

"I would say that your experience here can vary widely depending on your particular area. I work in a group where I am respected and considered a leader. I believe my pay is on par with my male counterparts, and my work is valued. I have been in other groups where this is not exactly the case, and I know of other women in my area (and in other groups) who are living another experience. Be sure to speak up for yourself, build a support system in other groups and have the confidence to toot your own horn. Without the ability to self-promote, you can find yourself left behind. "

"I've never thought that someone was getting treated better because they were male. Some of the other women at work may say differently, but I don't think that this is down to them being female. It's down to a lack of respect for their ability to do the job - and other men who are unable to do their job will also experience a lack of respect too. There are often female warriors at work who preach the feminist battle - but it's important for them to recognise their own shortfalls before blaming it on them being female."

"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!"

"I've been pleasantly surprised by the amount of women hired by Apple, as well as the number of women in supervisory/creative/managerial roles. The company strives to a give their employees a good work/life balance with generous maternity leave (for both men and women), paid family leave, flexible schedules Kin care, and many, many other family friendly practices. The environment is very inclusive and supportive, with no gender bias (or any other bias, for that matter)."

"I think Women and Men are treated equally. There are many women in senior roles. It is a flat company, making it challenging for everyone to get promoted. The toughest jump is from Sr. Manager (M3) to Director. We have a rich benefit plan, and the stock increase over the last handful of year has made this a very lucrative position. One note: The nature of the work requires a lot of hours, in and out of the office. It was very challenging to maintain work and family when my kids were small."

"If you are planning on having a family, this isn't the place to be unless you are in an upper level position. I barely had enough time to pump for my daughter. Because I couldn't afford to stay on leave for the full twelve weeks, I had to return after six weeks of giving birth. Most surgeries allow 90 days. Birthing a child should be the same. Women have a hard time being promoted into better positions because it is a male dominated place. There always seems to be some excuse why some people aren't promoted vs others."

"There are not many women in engineering here and very few in engineering management roles. In software development long hours and weekend work is required and assumed. There is little opportunity to work from home when needed. As for maternity leave, it is only "Paid" if you take sick days and vacation days to supplement disability. Don't confuse this for other tech companies that actually keep paying you salary during maternity leave."

"I've mostly interacted with highly professional, extremely smart individuals at this company, and I've never experienced overt sexism. That said, like most tech companies it has a pretty high male to female ratio, so it's easy to feel outnumbered. The senior leadership seems committed to recruiting more women though. We also had two women present at WWDC this year, which I believe is a first. So that's a step in the right direction. I had no issues with my maternity leave. My team was supportive when I left and when I returned. There are a lot of people with kids here, so everyone is very understanding about needing time off for doctors visits, school functions, etc."

While overall it's a professional and fair place to work, the group chats and training sessions can be a breeding-ground for inappropriate and sexist jokes/attitudes, depending on who's around.There were many women on my teams throughout my time in this position, and most of my direct managers were women. I didn't see evidence of gender coming into play for hiring or promotions, since this is such a data-rich field. Your numbers generally speak for themselves, and most decisions are made that way."

"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)."

"It's important to bring a can-do attitude to work every day. The hours can be long and you might be given huge tasks that you aren't even sure where to begin solving. The key is to let folks know 'you are on it'. Pay attention to build relationships across the company, not just at your level but above and below. There are many opportunities to work cross functionally and the better your internal network, the more successful you will be. Pay close attention to how more senior women have advanced. Seek out mentors, even if they are unofficial - they can help you learn the culture and how to get things done. Don't assume that other senior women will be your best mentor. Find someone who gets you and can help you advance."

"It's going to be a long, tough journey - as you know, it's a lot easier to fall than it is to get back up. That being said, getting back up and continuing on is, without a doubt, the best thing you can ever do in any situation. It is easy to get lost in the sea of people at such a large company, but surround yourself with a strong and hard-working team, and you will see the impact you make. And the impact this job will have on you."

"At Apple, you need to network. The projects and initiatives are typically cross functional so you need to know who to talk to and how to make things happen. Important projects are accomplished by a team so it's truly important to figure out who you need to work with to move the next mountain. I have worked with some of the smartest people during my time at Apple. We have been able to accomplish so much together and have a blast at the same time."

"(Entry date March 2015) I worked in an Apple Retail Store for over 3 years. In general, the company has great benefits that support families in many ways, I have absolutely no complaints about the support they offer on a corporate level for women and families. My concerns are more with the opportunities to grow in Apple Retail, especially as a woman. I am very relational, great with people, and have a good attitude and a strong work ethic. I started as a part time (Sales) Specialist and was offered the opportunity to apply for (and received) a rare full-time opportunity after my first year. About 6 months later I earned a promotion to (Sales) Expert. Within the next 6 months I earned a position on the Business Team as a Business Specialist (lateral move). What I found in my time in Apple Retail is that there are opportunities for movement, but you must take the initiative to make it happen on your own. Look for ways to be a leader in your department, find opportunities to improve processes especially between departments, and be proactive about your career growth. My managers were always supportive of my growth, but I had to initiate much of that, and with a positive attitude and enthusiasm for my job, my team, and my company I was able to stand out among my peers. What I found more difficult was any opportunity for breaking into the management level. It is far easier to make lateral moves, and Apple Retail is supportive for those wanting to move to different departments within the store, but breaking into management is difficult. In my store, of 7 managers, only one was female, a lower-level manager. There are fewer female Geniuses and Sales Experts. Maybe this is because fewer women pursue technology careers, but still... I found for management positions they tend to hire from outside (managers from other technology stores) and more male candidates than female. We need more women in technology careers!"

"We are hiring more and more women. The company itself is a great company to work for. Great benefits fir everything from medical to products. Work life balance is pretty good most of the time. However it is retail so there are a lot of nights, and weekends. You need to be prepared for that. If you can get into apple you have made it in the retail world that is for sure!"

"Having kids makes it very difficult to work for this company and I've worked in several different departments within Apple. Or maybe working at this company makes it difficult to have kids. Bosses don't seem to understand that emergencies happen with children."

"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."

"Apple is a true meritocracy. Your expertise and passion for what you do is what moves you ahead. It can be difficult to balance work-life, particularly in the technical roles which are very demanding. But there's a very high level of engagement and people love what they do."
