Is Apple considered a prestigious (Tier 1) company to work for as SWE?

Heard good things about different projects and talent pool but equally bad equally about secrecy and tech stack. This obviously doesn't count for IS&T teams but more of their consumer-based product teams e.g. Apple pay, music, AMP, Siri etc.

  • Definitely a better place for product, marketing, and hardware, but I'd say tier 2 for software, which is still pretty good. It's certainly well respected.

      Google, Facebook, Netflix are the tier 1 for software

      @iHateFruite What team/division do you work in? I know IS&T teams are horrible.

      FB serious? They move fast and break EVERYTHING... so many debts... I would say Google is the only big Tier 1 player. Apple is definitely not close to Google, but I think it’s not so bad.

    Who cares how prestigious it is? Is your concern really how other people perceive where you spend 40 hours a week?

    Netflix is the ultimate software company in my opinion. They blow every other offer out of the water with their 400k all cash offers!

      Are they only top-of-market for software engineers or are they also like that for netops/dba/non-SWE people?
