UBS survey shows Apple employees love the company and their boss
Swiss bank UBS has completed a survey of tech firms which found that Apple employees are the most optimistic about the future. Considering how well Apple rebounded from a rather dull 2013, the company has given its employees plenty of reasons to see the glass as being half full with a strong year for iPhone sales. The larger screens on the Apple iPhone 6 (4.7-inches) and Apple iPhone 6 Plus (5.5-inches) are the impetus behind the strong showing for the handsets.

Apple took first place in all of the categories surveyed by UBS, including business outlook, culture, values, management and CEO. Speaking of Tim Cook, he received a higher score from Apple employees than the score given the rest of Apple's management team.

UBS tech analyst Steven Milunovich says that the employees' positive assessment of the company bodes well for Apple's future. The analyst added that he wasn't surprised to see Apple take the top spot among the tech firms polled. EMC finished second with NetApp, Cognizant, Accenture, HP and IBM completing the order of the remaining firms surveyed. While Apple finished first in each category, IBM finished dead last in each one.

You're simply pissed, cuz I buy what I want. If you think about, You're actually brainwashed lol. You follow the "we hate Apple crowd" right? I spend my money on what I choose, and you're too stuck in camp droid, to notice the other good devices out there. Oh well...

He's too droidheaded to know the difference Mxy. Apple rocks, and working for them rocks too. I love going to the mall, just to hang out there, plus there's a Johnny Rockets rite across the way :D +1

25. Mxyzptlk unregistered

Same here. I love popping into an Apple Store and walking around. +1 for Johhny Rockets. They have good food.

Why wouldn't they? It's profitable, it (allegedly) has a nice work ambient, superiors who seem nice and laid-back, what most can someone ask for? I pity the haters who rage on the internet about a company who's too busy making money to notice.

I guess this survey didn't ask those who works as slaves for making the Apple products back in China. Instead, they just walked into Apple's fancy headquarters in the States and went ahead with this fishy survey.

You're absolutely right! They asked Apple employees, you know, the ones that are actually employed by Apple. As for the "slaves", you'll have to wait for the Foxconn survey.
