      The whole company is a shit show? You were able to judge this in under a year? Seems like an exaggeration to me

    What’s the difference? It’s a business
    You leave if it does not make sense !!
    Why so much judgement ?
    We are all engineers and professionals!
    You can leave in a month if it’s not a good environment!!

      Ok. Id only go if it were to Apple or FB with base bump. Else id stay put. But i dont think anyone cares if you stayed more than 1 yr.

      FB is better for long term stability. Apple isn’t the monopoly in the space it operates in. FB is.

      Does it mean if you meet expectations and quit on your own terms then there is a chance for being flagged? I thought this applies only for pipped persons
