I worked at BlackBerry full-time (less than an year)

Pros

One of the best work environments I have ever been a part of. Youthful, energetic, which a huge focus on innovation and learning. Absolutely great place for anyone young to start their careers. There's a big focus on employee satisfaction.

Cons

Bit too much work creeps into your off hours / weekends. And while the company is well organized on the R&D side from the project management and developer teams down, there seems to be an excessive number of executive VPs, SVPs and CEs. Definitely feels they could cut a layer of senior management out.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Look to reduce top-heavy structure (at least in R&D).

    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
