Nor I. New job, new employer - the last thing you want to be doing is flouting the dress code. Imagine if it was the other way around. You rock up in jeans to a suit and tie firm. I just think it is a bit odd from a corporate policy point of view. I get companies in which coat and tie is the norm. Traditional, conservative, showing respect for clients, having more of business frame of mind. I work in such a place. Equally, I get places which allow you to wear whatever you want. They are saying, be an individual. Be innovative. We'll judge you on your output rather than what you wear. Fair enough. But to require casual dress just seems a bit forced and try hard - like they're playing at being a funky, anything goes workplace, but they're actually being very rigid about it. Maybe one explaination is this. We have casual Friday (unless you have an important meeting etc), but I have noticed that no senior leaders ever wear casual on Fridays. So that leaves me thinking should I dress like my peers or like the hoi polloi? So, perhaps, Apple take the view that if you allow some people to dress in formal business dress that could create two classes of employees and they want to be more democratic than that.
