Apple folks, how many hours do you work? Is it as bad as Facebook and Amazon? Looking for Apple Media Products team specifically?

Do you guys work over the weekends?

    Imagine dating the neediest girl ever. Except she stalks you everywhere and you don’t have privacy to use the bathroom. That’s what working for Apple was like.

      I hope the stock refreshers make up for it, innit?

      Eh debatable. Really depends on your org. Shitty orgs like SWE Programs probably won’t give much but maybe anything under Eddy Cue.

  • I think it has to be extremely inefficient at Apple. they have tens of thousands of engineers and all they offer is a laptop with only one I/O port and a tweaked version of FreeBSD and one phone, in the shape of a phone or a watch or a speaker. Google can do that with 5,000 engineers.

    Trolling aside, the quality and quantity of work varies from team to team and highly dependent on the manager. In general, it is no way relaxed. Things will be hectic for at least two to three months a year.
