Apple's Corporate Red Tape

Date: July 7, 2010

Facebook Product Designer Chad Little was once an employee of the most valuable company in the world. Howevever, after joining team Zuckerberg, he divulged a number of inside secrets about the Cupertino Clan on the Quora site. Apparently, all Apple projects involving Steve Jobs assistance had ridiculous completion times: “If you have a project that Steve is not involved in, it will take months of meetings to move things forward. If Steve wants it done, it’s done faster than anyone thinks is humanly possible.” Little also confirmed nothing was free at Apple, not even coffee. Jobs alleged explanation for this was that it made employee stock go up so they could afford these amenities. Damn.
