I would think that its a good company to join as a hardware engineer. But what software are they working on that makes it a good company to join?

      Apple software engineering sucks. The hiring bar is pretty low compared to all the other brand name companies and it shows on some of the software products we release.

      Give iPads a fully featured filesystem and I'll have no complaints

      Oh please, Glassdoor — the most irrelevant website with salary data from the 19th century. You know there are high school students who do a better job at what Glassdoor is supposed to provide.

      Lol Apple may not be as prestigious compared to fb/G but Amazon is definitely a place people go to when they get rejected from the top 4. I’ve literally never seen anyone reject a FNG offer and go to Amazon.

      No, but I know plenty of people who rejected Apple and went to AWS. Apple couldn’t pay them what they wanted and its culture is shit.

    It’s not good for software. Offers for senior engineers max out around 450k RSUs, outside of Siri. At fb/G, u can get 800k RSUs for E5/L5.

      In what world? I’ve not seen any such RSUs among fb/g E5 employees.

      It happens. If u have a competing offer from Netflix. Or if G is trying to down level u to L5 when you’re getting principal/staff level offers from amazon/fb etc.

    Decent scale. And in some orgs, you define the API for many iOS developers to use and depend on.
