What are some good SW teams/products at Apple?

Thinking of Apple as mid/long term. Since work and culture within teams/products vary within a big company it would nice to know which of them standout.
Good teams as in positive and hard working co-workers.
Good product as in having a high ceiling for learning and a decent product roadmap.
Looking for backend work building APIs.

    Siri/Services/ML are good.

    Some Watch teams are okay.

    IS&T and SWE Programs are hell on Earth

      Mostly internal tools/automation/infrastructure.

      They’re responsible for our god awful bug tracking tool that we use instead of JIRA.

      That’s disappointing, I would have assume the in house ones were good. The fb system in house one is pretty great.

      Apple internal tools are awful. They look like kids wrote them in the 90s.

      All the emphasis is on actual product releases. Those teams actually have real engineers lol.

    New Private Cloud teams in Services related to compute, Storage and Databases are also good.

    Working closely with CVML and Turi, both of them are quite good in vision and engineering strength, not sure about the culture in team though. I’ve worked with Siri teams with jerks, but also with pleasant experience, so maybe luck.

    Many of the SWE Development orgs are good like CoreOS, Networking, Security etc. Very talented and motivated engineers.
