We are told that companies like Google and Apple create Nirvana, when in fact the truth reveals Liberalism at its ugly core.
Liberals rarely want you to have a real look at the Utopias they claim to create.
Former Apple employee Ben Farrell spent two years working for Apple. He describes it as a “cut-throat” environment with 16 hour workdays and little concern for the employees’ well-being and that of their families.
Not exactly the picture of happiness Liberals present of Apple.
“Drinks with colleagues revolved around the same stories told again and again as drunken management spoke of times when Apple executives made ‘strategic’ decisions to cut jobs and shut down Apple sites so swiftly and carelessly. Like Boy Scouts around a campfire, employees eyes would glow and twinkle at this notion of power, and embrace these stories with awe but with utter disrespect for the actions Apple has on the broader community of contractors, vendors, partners, resellers and business partners they have bent over a barrel of non-profitability.”
“Sickness, family emergencies, and even weddings are given no respect at Apple. When I started my role I missed one business trip as my wife was pregnant, fell down the stairs and had to be hospitalized – this was listed as a ‘performance issue’ on my record and brought up during a one- on- one with management as a major ‘miss’ on my behalf.”
“Management was inconsistent, moody and erratic. I’d often receive aggressive chats at all hours, and harassing texts every fifteen minutes asking “are you online? Your status shows you as away – are you there?”. I received rude voicemails on my phone when I was one minute late to a meeting and was harassed about my ‘Australian work ethic’ with management out of Singapore, even commenting that Australians are ‘unfriendly’ and that we ‘only like to work with other Australians’.”
All told, Farrell sounds like he’ll be much better off working elsewhere.
