I joined Apple in February 2003. This means that I've now been working at Apple for three and a half years, or a bit more.
That means that I have passed or have nearly passed the length of time I worked at Claritech. So this is a new record for me for tenure in any job.
And before Claritech, there was CMU for four years, and four years of Stanford before that. High school was three years, junior high was three years, and elementary school covered three different schools, with no more than three years at any one--so I'm getting close to a record for time spent with any institution.
And Apple seems to be thriving, Apple's management seems happy with our group, and our group's management seems happy with me. It looks like I won't have to leave in the forseeable future.
This is an unprecedented level of stability for me.
