    I have been working at BlackBerry full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Very professional and friendly people to work with. The company definitely takes care of its employees. The new CEO is turning things around and I am hopeful for 2013

    Cons

    Fear of being cut in layoffs during downsizing. Even though they look to be performance-based, it is still nerve-wracking wondering if you will be next.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Even though you must lay people off, don't forget to take care of those that stay. Otherwise, the talented will leave.

    I worked at BlackBerry full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    great training/experience. great people. was once a good product

    Cons

    lack of vision on the future. nothing gets through the "sponge."

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    if you have certain criteria upon which to measure employees for raises/bonuses/job advancement... stick to it. no ones wants to see a 5 year lawyer attain a level of Vice-President that is normally reserved for 15+ year lawyers. It's bad for morale and illustrates a lack of judgment.
