    Pros

    You work a little, ear a lot! Working from Monday to Wednesday, 9AM to 5PM and 1.5 hour break time. Plus reimbursement for everything. Never mind about the goals, when quarter ends the manager do adjustments for employees receive their full salaries.

    Cons

    Manager director goes to the office only 3 days each 2 weeks, doesn't knows nothing about their employees but believe to be the best manager ever. No clear rules about how to drive tasks. A complete mess.

    Advice to Management

    If BlackBerry wants to be competitive in Brazil, is time all employees qualifications.
