I have been working at BlackBerry

Pros

very lax environment which is brought from the canadian culture, if you do your work, you'll be acknowledged and given great opportunities

Cons

at times there could be a disconnect between departments, but its not something that you wouldn't see in other large conglomerates

Advice to ManagementAdvice

i've gotten a 'sneak peek' of the world inside the leadership roles, and boy is it a busy schedule. having said that, there are opportunities that a leader can get a 'refresher' on what the trenches/front-line do on a day-to-day basis, seize the opportunities to better yourself and those you lead

    Decent benefits.

    Cons

    High levels of stress between employees.
    Low morale.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean up the house. Many "old timers" don't want to change their ways and still believe RIM is the only smartphone manufacturer in the world, making it more difficult to do business with us. Arrogant attitude needs to go out the door. There is a lot of talent in middle management that needs to be promoted or else will leave the company.
