How does Apple compare to C1 in terms of engineering culture, tech stack and growth opportunities as a mid-level/3YOE engineer? C1 uses AWS, Spring, Slack, GSuite etc basically lots of modern tech stacks that are portable to other companies whereas the Apple team interested in me is not using most of that and has in-house alternatives.

Comp with Apple is better, but Capital One has interesting work that provides experience in can take to other companies so I'm conflicted.

    Are you seriously doing a comparison between Apple and Cap1??? I don’t even know what to say - Cap1 is a bank ... not even a hedge fund, etc just a bank. Apple ... completely separate stratosphere.

    And Cap1 engineering sucks... they scrap projects every 3 months because they can’t meet deadlines or realize the idea was never a good one to begin with ... and attrition at Cap1 is like 40%+ every year for engineering
