Former Employee - Product Management MBA Intern  in  Waterloo, ON (Canada)
Former Employee - Product Management MBA Intern in Waterloo, ON (Canada)

I worked at BlackBerry as an intern for less than a year

Pros

Very reasonable rent in the area (Waterloo), opportunity to get Services exposure (albeit too late for the firm)

Cons

Former CEOs never communicated strategy, inability to focus on external partners, low quality software teams

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Understand that both software and hardware are becoming commoditized, but at least focus on building a credible platform for all partners.
