A conversation on Hacker News from an alleged Apple employee says that things are broken at Apple and no one communicates.

Broken management structure. I have had many managers (a red flag in itself) but even worse none of the managers take suggestions from engineers. Everything is purely top down. If an engineer realizes there is a problem on a macro scale they cannot fix it. It is literally impossible to unite more than 1.5 teams to get anything done.

    Apple does have a reputation for an internal culture of secrecy and silos, being so paranoid about “leaks” that teams can’t adequately communicate and work together. Ironically few leaks come from Cupertino proper – most are from the vast supply and manufacturing chain.

    In contrast, Google seems fairly open internally (with the exception of the former Google X which was highly secretive, had separate buildings that you couldn’t get into, etc..)
