    Pros

    The benefit was good. The work/life benefit was great. It was the most profitable company in Canada. Now the company still has a lot key technology to generate profit.

    Cons

    The company changed leadership 2 times in 5 years. The leaders in the past did not have vision for the industry and did not have the ability to move the company forward quickly to compete.

    Pros

    The best thing about working for BlackBerry was the compensation and benefits. The company provides room for personal growth. You had the ability to work from home and most of the time there was always a friendly and collaborative environment.

    Cons

    Ultimately there was a lot of fear because of recent layoffs. It was hard to communicate and bring about new ideas; they liked to stay conservative.

    Pros

    good pay, good product managers. great to work with one of the companies that had started the smart phone trend. great groups to work with are bbm and bes.

    Cons

    every other groups other than that mentioned above are in a downward spiral. so applying for them might not be a great idea with limited budgets for future projects.

    A groundbreaking product in a killer industry surrounded by top talent in a flexible, energetic, and fun atmosphere.

    Wait, sorry that was all true about 3 years ago. 3 years and 3 CEO's later it is a completely different story.
