Moving from Apple to FNG

I am quite overworked with mind numbing tasks in my team and plan to interview with FNG. How much importance do FNG recruiters/hiring managers give to Apple on resume? Apple is my first company after grad school and I had pretty bad ghosting experiences from FNG (especially Facebook) when I was interviewing for my first job.

    Glad you taking the decision to leave before Apple becomes a sinking ship (although it still is 10 years out). I did the same and am very happy with my decision- I used to work for Apple (worked there for almost 5 years) and the work got really really boring. Updated my LinkedIn and FANG recruiters reached out to me within few hours.

      SDE Siri org. Healthcare is not the next iPhone so I wouldn’t hedge my bets on it.

      Siri is not a great team to work for from what I’ve heard. That being said, Apple is not a sinking ship and anyone who thinks so is a fool who’s kidding themselves.

      Over $200b LIQUID cash in the bank. The company could acquire any emerging tech brand they want if they started falling behind. Literally 0 chance they sink.

      $200b in liquid cash with no investment will dry out in thin air before you know it. What the company needs is radical innovation and speed which Jobs was known for. Tim’s a typical business guy who wants to extract in every way he can. This is not sustainable. Also, Siri was not a bad team to work for but as Apple as whole there has been no vision and no direction on how we wanted our AI to be better than google or Amazon. This literally is an Engineers nightmare. People never ever suspected IBM will go in this direction but it did. It doesn’t happen overnight but lack of innovation will kill the company slowly but surely.

      Sorry, I have to agree with Shwag...

      $200b in liquid cash on a still dominant, insanely profitable company, with numerous non-public R&D ventures you have literally ZERO insight into, some of the brightest minds in the world, and you think they’re going to sink in a decade?

      People have been spelling doom and gloom for Apple for well over a decade now and they’ve consistently been wrong. What makes you think YOU are the one that’s smarter than everyone else and that you’re the one who’s right?

      You think that Tim micromanages the companies R&D and that there’s not possibly another smart mind that could be working on new things?

      Apple has never been one to spill the beans on projects early until they’re ready for prime time.

    You will get plenty of responses from recruiters. Just update your LinkedIn.

      Thanks. Do you suggest I reach out to them on Linkedin? My previous job search has been through applying on company websites.

      Yes. Reach out to them on LinkedIn. Recruiters are more responsive if you have experience. I didn't get many calls when I was doing my Masters. But once I had experience from Amazon on my LinkedIn, I got many responses.
