    I hope the people in maps and Siri are not already working at their maximum.

    Everyone from the top to the bottom works their asses off. So you’ll feel immense pressure to work. Coupled with all the secrecy and pettiness that comes with that I left.

    It varies team by team, but most people work pretty hard. It’s fairly doable if you don’t have a family

    OP
    This is scary and not really what i expected from Apple. I was under impression that since Apple is a big company and comparatively has less online presence (compared to fb, google, amzn), it would be much more relaxed. Also I have heard there are many old timers in Apple, so was not expecting young out of college hardworking kids there. Weird!

      What other company in the world can you work on the iPhone and all of its custom parts. So everyone who works there can’t imagine working anywhere else. It really is a company full of perfectionists.

    It is not as bad as folks make it out. I think nothing can beat Microsoft in WLB. Google may come close. But those are extreme outliers. Most companies don’t have such unbelievable WLB. Apple is 100x better than the folks working in Wall Street

    Not good. A lot of silos and wlb is not strongly emphasized here. I missed Adobe’s wlb.
