Approves of CEO

I worked at Apple full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Apple is great to build experience with sales.
Encouraging management.
Clearly articulated goals.
Amazing onboarding and training program.
Discounts.
Camaraderie amongst co-workers.
Engaging with customers and helping them learn something new.

Cons

Little room for growth. Don't expect to start as a specialist and move to genius. They're two different worlds according to management.
Often found that although I was better at helping/repairing software/hardware issues, got stuck in specialist position and told to focus on sales.
You end up selling $10k+ a day with no commission.

    I have been working at Apple full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The people that I work with are some of the smartest individuals that I know.

    Cons

    You are not always in the "know" so you must be able to deal with ambiguity

    Advice to Management

    My advise would be to try and keep the feeling of Staying small. The bigger you get the harder it is for team members to know what the priorities are.


  2. "Leading with ambiguity"
