Hi all. I work in the automotive sector and I tentatively have an offer from Apple SPG. I’m not sure if I want to take it up because there are many concerns I can see, but I’m confused because it’s Apple and I might have a chance to move to different teams in the future. What do you guys suggest?

      No as in I can’t change teams? Is there no opportunity to grow at all?

      Much easier to change teams than hire external

      But it is still doable right? I mean I would like to experiment with different teams because I’m at the very beginning of my career. Is that doable maybe in 2 years or so? And is the culture in spg different than culture in Apple itself?

      Yes, it’s doable. We’ve had several folks join our team from SPG. But it will be difficult for you because you won’t interact with the rest of the company much, so it’ll be difficult to have working relationships with other teams outside SPG to move to. Your best shot if you want to move is probably to find someone in SPG who has been with the company awhile and see if they can help refer you to another team.

      I did not end up joining. I’m unsure if it was a good or bad decision but it’s already done.

    Do you simply want to join in order to switch team?

      Not exactly. I like the position. But I wanted my next career move to do something different, like a different team. This is kind of exactly what I do right now. So I’m in a dilemma because it’s a great opportunity. I haven’t accepted the offer yet.
