Great company to work for but is in uncertain times at this time

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Slough, Berkshire, South East England, England (UK)

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

ProsWell 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.

ConsUncertainties/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 Senior ManagementSet clear accountabilities for management and hold them to it. Foster and reward innovation in every department.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
