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

Pros

- Awesome corporate culture and a great working environment.
- Get a BlackBerry smartphone to use for the term of employment
- Plenty of opportunities to go beyond regular duties and discover your passions by collaborating with different teams

Cons

- Automation, automation, automation.....not much focus given to it yet as it should, so no one has to do those mundane testings everyday.
