Almost everyone who has worked with Apple founder Steve Jobs has a funny story that reveals similarities about the character and life position of the now deceased CEO. Evan Doll, the creator of the Flipboard news aggregator, who worked at Apple from 2003 to 2009, told his story.
In his microblog, Doll talked about Steve Jobs' reaction to the question about the low salaries of Apple engineers. In his usual passive-aggressive manner, the businessman replied, "Perhaps you should ask your manager why he thinks you are not worth more."
Jobs' advice perfectly characterizes Apple's policy of promoting competition among employees at the time. During the period when Evan Doll worked at the company, Cupertinians agreed with the three largest corporations Google, Intel and Adobe not to poach employees from each other. This agreement subsequently became the cause of a class action lawsuit from their employees. Evan Doll was one of those who went to court for compensation. He recently received a check - the creator of Flipboard was paid $ 1,000 for each year he worked at Apple.
According to Dollars, the engineers' relatively low salaries were offset by securities that employees received through the employee stock purchase plan (ESPP), which provides for the purchase of company shares with money withdrawn from their salaries every month. As Evan admitted, he sold his shares almost immediately in order to pay off the student loan. Then he rescued $ 4 thousand, now this amount would be $ 500 thousand.
