    I worked at BlackBerry full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Friendly and has incredible benefits. All of the benefits take a while to root out. Flexible with your schedule.

    Cons

    Too much bureaucracy. Company is not agile enough and very slow to react. They have way too many niche jobs. Also, they go way overboard on security. Very flat organization with no where to move.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the market. Customers want different phone form factors. Learn to move quicker.

    I worked at BlackBerry full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Infrastructure teams in IT are highly skilled and competent workers.

    Cons

    Senior leadership is acting in old ways and depend on 'buddy' system. Vendor refresh system leaves much to ask for

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees. Don't be afraid to challenge current vendors with competitor's technology solutions. Don't hire friends. Hire the best, most motivated person.
