do you have HR data to indicate it's above or below their normal churn? do you also have their hiring data? if not, how do you feel qualified to make that statement at all? you dont seem qualified to me.
I know 3 out of 5 of them personally. None of them were involved with the actual making of the products directly, whether hardware, software or what have you. They were leaders in directing and focusing teams to meet goals.
Bertrand is a great guy. He hadn't been knee deep in coding for nearly 15 years. Rubenstein never wrote code and his expertise of working with hardware was in the past. Sina worked in branding, marketing and non tech related relations. He was one of the first guys we contacted to come back during the merger. He had bailed on NeXT and professional services prior to the merger.
There is plenty of talent at Apple. If someone wants to leave to get a huge pay day and a title they've been pining over, let them go. They'll discover the experience never pans out.
Couldn't agree more. Facebook is a shitty company that makes shitty products, but happens to have a lot of money. Harper is going to get a huge pay raise. I'm sure he will like the money. Who knows whether he will like the work. If he likes fixing shitty products and they give him the leeway to do what he wants, he may actually like it. However, if I had to guess, the people responsible for creating shitty products at Facebook are going to insist on continuing to create shit. A tiger doesn't change its stripes. Harper will become disenfranchised and eventually leave to go do something else once his options vest and he has money. Also not necessarily a bad option.
