Former Apple employees told about “intolerable conditions” with the company




Former Apple employees Don Melton and Nitin Ganatra podcast Debug talked about difficult working conditions in the company. According to them, the orders, established corporations in the most expensive in the world, do not leave any chance for a quiet and measured life.


Head of Internet technologies Don Melton and CTO of Apple Nitin Ganatra shared what the rules established in the company, brought them the greatest inconvenience.

Don Melton: In his own blog, I wrote about the reasons for departure from Apple. One of them was that Sunday evening is considered working time in the company.

Nitin Ganatra: Exactly.

Melton: Because every Monday there are meetings and conferences – so put off their phones and sit down at the computer to be ready for tomorrow. Nobody cares about that on the TV show is your favorite show.

Was particularly bad, when they stopped to show “The Sopranos.” Scott Forstal watched this TV show, so that when the transmission is started, it was possible to detect an hour and go about your business – take a bath or dinner with the family.

Scott – very “evening” people. He never went to bed early and wake up late always pretty. All employees must be connected somewhere to two nights. How many times have I received a letter from him at 1:30 or even 2:00 – and to respond to his message had to be immediate.

And more:

Melton: By the way, when you hear stories in the media about how Tim Cook comes to work in the wee hours, and sitting up late at the office – it’s not just the myths that should make you believe that to be the head of the company is very difficult. Tim really does so. And all the bosses. Just bonkers. They are all the time at work. One could never be sure how many will receive a letter from the management.

Ganatra: It seems that Tim had never slept longer than 3-4 hours, right?

Melton: Yes. And Steve, too.

According to managers, to be a leader in Apple – a huge responsibility. It is very hard work, and a person should always be in touch. For e-mail had to watch even on vacation.

“Ganatra: I always take a laptop on vacation, and I had to check it at least four times a day.

Melton: Only four?

Ganatra: You laugh, but I myself and felt – a bum. Where this is the case work – the boss sent me a letter, and I made him wait four and a half hours or more. ”

Melton has described what it means to be the manager of Apple:

“When someone came into my office and said he wanted to become a manager, I asked:” How did you sleep last night? “When a man answered,” good enough “, I said that it was the last night, when he slept well” .
