Consulting Exit Opportunities

Anyone know how product managers are positioned at Apple? I haven’t heard too much about PMs there compared to at other FAANG. Is it “true” product management, agile, or more like project managers?

Due to Apple's org structure - their PM org functions very very differently.

Is it generally a good thing to be a PM at Apple (reputation-wise)? Love the company but not sure how it’d look on the resume.

It's very top to bottom driven company. don't expect lot of freedom. Mostly it's very execution oriented.

Starting application process to FAANG and other tech firms. For those who have recruited, what’s the end-to-end timeframe?

I have a colleague who always shows up on our morning meetings with wet hair from where it’s clear she just got out of the shower before the call. Our manager took her aside and apparently told her that it didn’t look professional on client video meetings. I wouldn’t have even known or thought about it but someone else in our team was talking about it. It seems like a nonevent but I am curious what everyone else is thinking about experiences and expectations for dress on client video calls?

Range on ES (S&P) sell at the highs on Friday worked, it worked almost too well. We fell out of the range in the afterhours and opened up with a gap lower on Sunday night. That gap sent us to 3027. Then it was a gap-fill long that basically worked until Europe trade this morning to 3097. At that point, there been two sells of a major Halfway back short. We are still defending that short. However, it's a Monday and major trending defining moves rarely happen. Bearish below 3100. 2999 Target.
