    Advice to Management

    Read more books on complex systems. Stop enforcing top-down process for the sake of it; build simple rules to create a fence around where you want the company to move while allowing your teams to direct how they best see fit. Apple isn't a small company anymore and as such the same management models will not work. Invest more in the talent that has brought Apple its success as that will create a positive feedback loops in ares of: competing in the high skilled labor market, reducing overhead costs, avoiding the Apple engineering churn, etc.

    I worked at Apple full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Energetic, professional, challenging, and lots of opportunity fir those who make them.

    Cons

    Any position as a call agent in a call center can get monotonous at times, but the purpose of this group is so important, that boredom is a rarity.

    Advice to Management

    Assume nothing…department growth tends to do that, and newcomers don't know some about what you assume in many cases. New employee orientation is too high-level, so area and team managers have to manage the lexicon and vernacular to the new employees, but also become more knowledgable about programs, initiatives, and benefits (such as tuition reimbursement) to stimulate employees to keep growing their knowledge.
