I worked at BlackBerry full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Smart People. Great products. Free BlackBerry. Decent benefits. New sense of focus and direction from Thorsten.

Cons

Growing pains and symptoms of immature senior leadership (pre-Thorsten Heins).
Hours can be long as a result of increased workload and less people however the work is becoming more focused as the extraneous initiatives are eliminated.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Focus on the future and the platform. Never give in to pressure to conform to another OS.
Don't forget the people who work so hard.

    I worked at BlackBerry as an intern for 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.
