Curious if google employees are offered Apple Mac/iPhones as an option or they have to use pixel books and pixel phones ? Also if they do use apple devices, how is that seen in the company?

    Boring question. Unlike apple google does not force employees to use android/pixel books. Free to use whatever device and os without judgement l

      My team uses MacBooks. It’s also worth noting that most of our internal apps are also supported on iOS

      Dogfooding is encouraged, but I’ve known several people who used Android. You have to use Macs obviously for development.

      As a windows guy, most windows shops I’ve been at lately use macs. The only reason Apple can get away with the shit they pull with that hardware. RIP MagSafe and right to repair.

    Question not boring at all, i really dont know why google will allow employees to use competitor’s product- not wise decision. It will not make goole product better

    • 1) google employee are not the best target market for google products
      2) using competitor product will make google employee learn the best features about apple
      3) dow chemicals is awesome

      Proper grammar will certainly improve Dow’s products, though.

      Google's products were better when they considered their employees part of the target market.

    No one gives a shit. iPhones and MacBooks are offered as corp devices. Give your employees the tools they need and they'll get shit done.

    Steve Balmer used to throw a fit when people used iPhones — look what happened to Windows phones.

    Limiting openness is always the stupidest business decision you can make.
