I have been working at BlackBerry full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Well known brand, great autonomy for managers that are interested in achieving and progressing their team, scope to add and implement your ideas, clear recognition for good efforts, not so beurocratic, dynamic work experience, friendly approachable people, good salary.

Cons

Uncertainties/insecurity of the company during the recent transition period,
Management has been lacking accountability.
I get a feeling that quite a few people are not sufficiently qualified/experienced for their roles and making up as they go along, while others have to work harder to fill the gap.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Set clear accountabilities for management and hold them to it. Foster and reward innovation in every department.

    I worked at BlackBerry as an intern (more than an year)

    Pros

    Co-ops get real responsibilities and work on real products. Good co-op pay. Learned a lot about how things work in the real world. Got the opportunity to work with a lot of smart people.

    Cons

    Product is no longer cutting edge. Uncertainty over future of company. Too many teams that aren't really well aligned. Very cold in Waterloo. :(

    Pros

    a good product, that people want and intends to keep

    Cons

    no company culture, haphazard management structure. duplication of wirk and very less R&D. Minimal stress on innovation and employee participation

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    should look towards future, not in a view of just doing....but doing something worthwhile, to get back the same momentum int the company and giving a new lease of life to our product, make them unique, not just space filler, in a long list of smartphone, we should have what e had before, a smartly designed phone
