I would like to know how easy it is to switch teams internally @ Apple? Have an offer for a role which is not in line with my current experience or career goals. If I join this team now, is there a min time before I can look for other opportunities internally?

    Not all that difficult but must be in current role 1 year.

      Is 1 year mandatory company forced requirement or just good to do?

      I call BS. If you want to switch, you better do a good job networking internally. Otherwise, the teams treat you as if you are an external candidate. I reached out to multiple teams while there and they didn't care that I was already at Apple.

      I meant not difficult as in it is an established, supported process and lots of people do it. Most teams still have a bar that needs to be crossed. Being internal earns you some points but it’s still up to you to cross it.

      And to OP: it’s an HR policy but like most rules can be bent and broken for the right people.

    Depends on the team. It's not that easy and your manager can make it very difficult if they want to. In many cases you have to go through same interviews as external folks and it really sucks. Then your manager says he needs you on a project for 6mo and that team needs people now so you miss the chance. Politics at Apple can suck

    If the job is not on the team you want you should not take it. Internal mobility is not predictable and you will end up getting stuck. $0.02

    Not always easy, many teams like to hire external expert and current manager can sabotage your transfer.
