I worked at BlackBerry full-time (more than a year)

Pros

With the recent downsize of the workforce, the company had changed immensely in terms of its culture and work ethics. The employees are very motivated and are very result oriented. This will be a great company for you to build experience and network.

Cons

Location. Waterloo may not be for everyone as the city itself lacks entertainment (unless you have a family). You might be expected to work long hours but it is common for any technology company nowadays.

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

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, good pay, lots of opportunities for interns to experience all sorts of work, always something to do, new technologies.

    Cons

    Tedious work at times, some buildings are cube farms, no benefits at all for interns, relocation is a must.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to employee suggestions wholeheartedly.
