    I worked at BlackBerry

    Pros

    *Company loves students
    *Incredible group of like-minded, intelligent interns, and we had a blast
    *Work life balance - 40 hour work weeks (for me) and generally commitment based. Some of my
    friends worked more but never too much more that I saw
    *Nicest people ever. My whole team was great (the actual employees, not interns) and really supported me
    *Very competitive sallary for a internship
    *Free blackberry and full voice and data service while working for them

    Cons

    *Not the fast-paced environment some might be looking for in places like Google and Facebook
    *Don't get to keep Blackberry after internship :)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Innovate. Apple and Google will take you down if you don't take some risks with your phones. Loved my internship though. Amazing experience. :)
