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

    Pros

    I like the company, it is a good company in Waterloo.

    Cons

    There is a lot of useless managers and employees that only pretend they are working. I'm amazed and very disappointed that the ones that are let go are actually the ones with the company's best interest at heart. There is no proper evaluation on who is being let go, a lot were just manager picks and OD is useless in checking to see what the real motive is behind the manager selections.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You are clearing the top level and a lot of regular employees, please pay attention to the mid level managers that are going unnoticed. They throw their employees under the bus and attend meetings in the name of solving problems, when there are real problems they rarely show face and OD is definitely not there for the right reasons.
