    I worked at BlackBerry full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    You are generally working with good people who are friendly and are willing to help you. The pay is decent and there are some training opportunities.

    Cons

    Given the loss of marketshare to Apple and Android, this is a relatively risky company to work for at this time. There were recently 5000 layoffs and the general atmosphere is focused on cost cutting. Bonuses are virtually non-existent and when given are a very small portion of your salary. Another problem is the constant re-org changes that occur and the business/process changes occurring based on this. Lastly, there is an expectation that you are always available to work, including nights and weekends. Executives will send emails out at 10pm on Friday and expect an immediate response.
