Disapproves of CEO

I worked at BlackBerry full-time

Pros

Above average compensation, Cutting Edge technology, Exceptional technical personnel, Extremely friendly atmosphere, Great benefits.

Cons

Bureaucratic management, Outdated project management style.

Advice to Management

Better communication between departments, or split the company into smaller and more manageable parts. It is ridiculous that they are laying off so many well-qualified people and are hiring at the same time (this is just one example of their excessive bureaucracy).
