Joined Apple SWE 1 year back and my WLB is terrific good.

Aug 22, 2019 19 Comments

I work 1-2 hours a day mostly, no sprints/scrums/standups - I work in IS&S org, which accounts for Apple Music, TV, News, App Store, Apple pay etc. (Specific team shall not be named)

My manager doesn't ask me what I'm working on, I give him status updates once in two weeks.

I get good refreshers, bonus etc.

      Anyway I do agree. I was in Eddy Cue’s org a few years ago and it was the chillest time of my life. I just couldn’t take the horrible internal infrastructure at Apple coming from Amazon, else I’d have loved to draw 250k for <10 hours of work per week.

    It's been just 1 year. Someday the giant might awake and you might find yourself justifying your fortune. Better not to coast at all. It's like a trick. They will tell you that your career is your responsibility. One of my managers wasted a lot of my time like this and then later started talking about performance even if it was him who didn't give work.
