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 ManagementAdvice

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

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

    Pros

    -big company
    -good salary
    -exposed to different modern technology
    -good working environment
    Overall you get to work in a fast paced electronics company, if you like learning and also getting good pay, this would be a very good company for you.

    Cons

    team are full of young people, most of them don't stay for very long, so sometimes it's hard to get advice.

    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 ManagementAdvice

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