In 2004, Apple’s position was nowhere near as strong as it is now. At this time, the company had just unveiled its first iPod Mini, and work on the project for the first iPhone was only in its early stages.
According to a former Apple employee, his favorite rule was # 5, “Everyone sweeps the floor.”
“This means that there is no unimportant or insignificant work. In other words, you don’t need to be arrogant just because you work at Apple or got a promotion, or your salary is an impressive amount – the basic foundation matters and you should always help, no matter how high you have taken off or how important you think you are, ”explained Dunseny.
Dunseny worked as a product consultant for Apple, but the rules apply to other areas as well.
