Seth Fiegerman has news from Reuters which reported what a recruiter said:
I am being inundated by LinkedIn messages and emails both by people who I never imagined would leave Apple and by people who have been at Apple for a year, and who joined expecting something different than what they encountered.
Well, that settles it. Apple has an employee morale problem, right? Of course, there are no details, no numbers, no locations, and nothing else that would smack of a fact.
Apple, for its part, appears to be aware of the issue as the company reportedly conducted a survey of employee morale in the hardware division earlier this year.
That’s not news. All large companies take similar surveys, sometimes every six months. Apple has almost 75-thousand employees worldwide, so there’s bound to be some churn. So, where is it, and at what rate? Engineering? Retail? Executive management?
