NewsDoes Apple really assign engineers to “fake” projects as a loyalty test? Pin

The claim took life with the publication of a book called Inside Apple, which claimed some employees were "hired into so-called dummy positions, roles that aren't explained in detail until after they join the company."... But is it true? I was prompted to look into the question after several friends—Apple employees, no less—expressed disbelief at the claim. Their skepticism matched my own experience; in my years of reporting on Apple and speaking to many of its employees, I had never heard of such a practice.
Canceled projects, sure. Fake projects? No.
