I have been working at BlackBerry full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Great perks, great people, competitive salaries. This is a great place to work, with lots of oppourtunity for learning, growth and movement within RIM.

Cons

Some duplication of effort, and a few too many "old school thinkers". Like most companies, its big enough to be slow at certain types of change, and some empire building. For the most part though, people work together.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Break down the silos, listen to the front-line, and focus on innovating!
