rly depends on team but if you are in marcom, you may not have the best experience. However, stick it through for a while and more doors will open. i now do freelancing and have my own clients and making more than I did at apple

@ senior copywriter marcom is apples internal agency it’s their marketing department

Avoid Interactive like COVID ☠️☠️☠️☠️☠️☠️☠️☠️

Refer to what Apple1 said. Basically production.

What was so bad about it @Apple1? And were you doing the Brand or Interactive team?

interactive. At marcom, you are a production designer

It’s only “production” if you come in with a Designer title. Or if you are an embedded vendor. Staffed Art Directors manages the projects, similar to how ACDs do at agencies. San Jose is huge, so there’s something for most, but not for all. Sunnyvale is pretty quiet and suburban. Silicon Valley, where 80% of the people you meet works for a tech company. Imagine the conversations! 🥱 and Happy Hour isn’t a thing before covid.
