I worked at BlackBerry as an intern (More than a year)

Pros

good compensation. good teammates. good CEO. good place to start your career.

Cons

from managerial to Senior VP levels, they all just care about money, not the company, not the products, not even the customers. a Senior VP said RIM doesnt need any advertisement, just like Boeing 747 doesnt need any

Advice to Management

changing the exec team only is not enough when all the people between them and the engineers are not doing their job properly

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at BlackBerry full-time (More than a 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 Management

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