    I worked at Apple full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Great training and experience opened doors to different industries and learnt invaluable lessons and skills along the way

    Cons

    - Hard to progress and senior roles are typically not advertised internally but external candidates are preferred.

    Advice to Management

    Be open and upfront with employees on career paths and nurture talent internally otherwise they will go elsewhere like myself and many of my colleagues did.
