Workers Supposedly Discontented With Work Culture At Apple

A few days ago Tim Cook (the Apple CEO) had an interview on extensive topics. One of the things he cited was how the employees in the company were motivated to work and stand. Well, it seems that workers are not too pleased with their CEO. As per yearly ranking by Glassdoor for top 100 CEOs in the U.S., Cook was placed at a miserable 96th position. By the way, Cook was 53rd in the list in 2017 but has dropped down 43 positions within 12 Months. The ranking is based on more than 12,000 Apple workers that posted reviews on Glassdoor. Apple has more than 80,000 workers, hence this review is just a part of the total number of individuals at the firm.

Other CEOs such as Sundar Pichai, Satya Nadella, and Mark Zuckerberg received a much favorable position in the list in comparison to Cook.

On the other hand, it does give a hint that Apple workers are not too pleased with the work culture below the management of their CEO. Some of them did mention this in reviews section of Glassdoor and underlined different problems. A lot of the discontented workers criticized about the work culture at the firm. Some of the posts read, “Work life balance is not the best” and “no work life balance, no growth opportunities”. It was not all criticisms as more than 600 employees did claim that the Cupertino-based firm had a “fun work atmosphere.” Although Cook may not be concerned about the posts from his workers, it is not a good thing to fall down so many positions in the list for top CEOs.

On a similar note, Apple last week arranged standing desks for all its employees. As per Cook, sitting is the new cancer. Cook disclosed this at the time of an interview with the media while speaking of the firm’s campus, which is widely recognized as Apple Park.
