Quick question: why was modem development a big fail? Is it just incompetence or are there other reasons? Thoughts?
https://www.macrumors.com/2022/06/28/apple-5g-modem-failed-qualcomm-remains-supplier/ Apple failed to build a viable modem due to incompetence. Iphone 15 modem will also be fully sourced by Q in 2023. Layoffs are coming! Better leave before they... — read more
Superstar employees should be those who are the best at their job and who in many ways are role models for others. However, here I have to put up with a few of them with superstar status who do not deserve that status at all. Are you sick of them... — read more
I have never worked in a company where micromanagement lowers company morale and creates a hostile workplace to such an extent. I have the feeling that the manager is watching me 24/7! Is leaving the only solution?
This company would rather layoff people than invest in a safe work environment. Even schools have this equipment nowadays. It exposes their preferences. Either people have to work in an unsafe environment or they will be fired. Shows the worth they... — read more
No matter what corporate does, some people will just complain. Let them moan at home. Apple should fire them en masse. Doers will get the job done.
This used to be my dream job but lately this has become a company that constantly puts their employees into a situation they don't want to be in. I started looking for a way out. Apple is rapidly changing, for the worse. Just my opinion.
It's funny how many people here advocate RTO. I spend more on gas, I waste precious time driving, but for me too it's better to be working in the office. The reason: I work less in the office than at home. I was more productive at home, but I... — read more

https://www.forbes.com/sites/dereksaul/2022/07/18/apple-reportedly-plans-to-slow-hiring-amid-recession-fears/?sh=318465aa717c I understand the need for a hiring freeze, but I also think it's too risky a move as well. Anyone else?
First, there is a slowdown in hiring (already announced). Then it's a hiring freeze in certain departments/groups. Then it's layoffs. Just look at what's been happening with Twitter and Meta, for example. I don't think it'll be as bad, but I do think... — read more
What was Doug Field's legacy at Apple?
I have only been here for a little over half a year and I am very disappointed. I didn’t think the atmosphere would be this toxic. My question for long time employees, has there always been a lot of negative energy here?
I joined Apple four years ago and I love my job. That's why I've been so bothered by the rumors going around about massive cuts in case of a recession. Is this likely to happen? Those who were at Apple for the Great Recession, is this what happened... — read more
I'm not delighted about hearing Cook say that acquisitions of large companies are not ruled out. Acquiring smaller companies is not an issue since most of the layoffs are on their side, there is very little disruption to the rest of us. With large... — read more

I'm interested in how many of my colleagues and others here are having a hard time deciding to leave Apple, mostly because they are afraid of the company's practice of changing the job title to "associate" for those who leave? Really awful... — read more

Full layoff on 12/25
I don't think so, because Qualcomm is still many years behind, but I wonder what you think? From the media: https://9to5mac.com/2021/11/16/qualcomm-apple-silicon-chips-m-series/
If the market makes a turn soon, do you think there will be Apple layoffs? Any chatter, news or rumors?
Racists can never collaborate to build something. They need to be grinded down and made to cooperate with others. Next year if apple can finally get that 5G soc, it will be far worse than q. Then the question will be , why did apple waste so many... — read more

We would be more successful marketing our modem as a multipurpose device. A personal heater with an inbuilt modem.
It’s against Apple policy to comment on here.
The workers in favor of trying to get their way by threatening to quit if they are required to be in the office should be taught a lesson. Come back to the office on The Company’s terms or be terminated. This is very straightforward. Not a boomer... — read more
