Freedom to be yourself, Little opportunity to evolve, Fun has turned into figure pleasing with little recognition. When I first started my career at Apple years ago I loved the energy, drive, fun and opportunities Apple offered, although sadly I cannot say the same today. As business started to change over the years the main focus of Apple has become quite dry with many employees losing motivation. Instead of a fun and super encouraging environment Apple has switched its passion into figures and percentages with little recognition to those who meet targets and little focus anymore with creating a happy motivated team that feels appreciated for the work they do. When I wanted to develop myself and evolve further within the company I was continuously rejected and was never even given the opportunity to finish an entire internal interview process. As I understand rejection is a part of growth its sad that Apple are not able to give opportunities to those who work for them over the years. Many employees are witnessing new comers enter into roles so easily with little expertise and experience as the internal interview process has become strictly formal, so when you answer a question exactly how management want to hear it you suddenly become more evolved then anyone else that’s been in the company for years. Apple were once accomodating to everyone learning styles and focusing on strengths but it appears now to grow we are all judged through a linear interview process that doesn’t build on strengths but more so makes us leave the interview process feeling devalued. At the start of my career at Apple I felt supported and felt my evolution at Apple meant a lot to management. I now feel that my expertise and experience, goal reaching, customer pleasing burn out has meant nothing or seen as any value when my daily work reflects other. Very unhappy and disheartened that a company that promotes equality and fairness can look past the talent of those that have earnt it. I know I am not alone with this one.
