Apple Employees Rebelling Against Apple Park’s Open Floor Plan, Report Says (neowin.net)

During a new episode of The Talk Show podcast on Daring Fireball, John Gruber touched on the topic of the open floor plans that Apple has implemented within its new campus, Apple Park. A WSJ profile of Jony Ive, where he talked about Apple Park, mentioned how programmers, engineers, and other employees had already expressed concerns about working in such an environment. Gruber shared what he has heard: I heard that when floor plans were announced, that there was some meeting with [Apple Vice President] Johny Srouji’s team. He’s in charge of Apple’s silicon, the A10, the A11, all of their custom silicon. Obviously a very successful group at Apple, and a large growing one with a lot on their shoulders. When he [Srouji] was shown the floor plans, he was more or less just “F— that, f— you, f— this, this is bulls—.” And they built his team their own building, off to the side on the campus … My understanding is that that building was built because Srouji was like, ‘F— this, my team isn’t working like this.'”
