Current Employee - Project Manager in Waterloo, ON (Canada)

I have been working at BlackBerry full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

mobile is a happening industry
global brand recognition
new executive team is really going for it
friendly work environment
seems like pay is competitive
seems like company is trying to attract and retain the best talent
BlackBerry's story matters and will be discussed and studied, whether we succeed or fail...

Cons

very few of the perks you get at the top tech employers
if the turnaround falls flat...
Canadian offices are mostly not inspiring (but that is supposed to change)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I'm rooting for you
