Yet another sign that Cook can't get employees to buy in on his vision and they leave the first chance they get.

For every person who thinks they might want to work at Apple, there's someone already working there who definitely doesn't. These MR reports remind us of that all the time.

Fast forward 2 years and the guy works somewhere else. I have little respect for guys who change positions so often. Either they are magicians and can have huge impacts in 18 months and then get bored or by the time they start settling in and doing something, it's time to move on.

This is common in startups but a different reason but in the corporate world, a stint under 5 years seems like a waste of time.
Effectiveness aside. Going to a different company is the fastest (and most effortless) way to get a pay raise.

Most upper management are so screwed up that they refuse to give the proper pay raise unless they really have to. By the time the talent is ready to leave then they wake up and try to match the offer. By then it's most of an insult and people will leave anyways.
