Have any of you been at an organization and as you get further entrenched, you start to realize you are surrounded by complacency and status quo? This organization is astonishingly incompetent yet somehow has survived while tenured siloers erode any passion the newcomers bring to the table. It’s a comic reality of tech debt, lack of accountability and anti-patterns.
- SAP yut567Tell me about it. All the time! Teams are so amazingly dysfunctional. Its beyond belief. Firing middle management would be a huge favor to the org.
- Small companies that aren’t surfing on VC money aren’t like this. They can’t afford it. Otherwise, the bigger and older a company is, the more rot you’ll find inside.
Now imagine what’s it like at Apple, one of the oldest and biggest tech companies out there...
- I found the tempo rather high and difficult to maintain long term. I also got a bit screwed over re. stocks and didn't get anything when we were acquired, that's my fault though. I find I get paid a lot more at large org doing rather little vs at startup doing quite a lot. I did have way more fun at startup though.
