These days there’s a very interesting blog post by an ex-Apple employee. Correct me if I am wrong but I feel it’s the first of this kind, so open and so harsh.
UPDATE: here is another interesting post by a designer.
I can’t help myself to believe every single line is true. No, I don’t believe every team/manager at Apple is like that. I am sure there are great teams and people proud of being part of Apple.
What I like is that the post depicts scenes which could belong to any other big company. Finally somebody testifying that Apple is a “normal” company, with as much shit as any other big tech corporation behind the great looking façade.
Maybe we will start liking it for what it is, and not some magical entity full of perfection.
ps: Here is a follow up to the first post by the same author.
