I have been working at BlackBerry full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Great place to work in Canada.

Cons

It's in Waterloo so that's boring but the cost of living is low and there are a lot of nice areas.

    I have been working at BlackBerry full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    years detached from its glorious dot.com years but blackberry is still relevant and the most awesome real-world productivity device out there, notwithstanding fancy hyped competitor "toys"

    Cons

    too many layers of management, many arrogant local folks hired & promoted without much effort and behaving like they deserve to work there more than outsiders, nepotism, its really who you know, old boys/girls club, lack of basic recognition and appreciation for the "little" folks, certain selfish arrogant upper management whose silent directive is to suppress/inhibit their staff, management who care more about progressing their own careers/fattening their wallets than growing the whole team, empire building, mentorship/career progression plan only available for the exclusive old boys/girls club members

    Advice to Management

    trim more levels of management. do a better job of marketing the products and company. hire more truly humble hardworking honest passionate collaborative folks - and not Paycheck People. zero tolerance on bullying. zero tolerance on old-school managerial dictators. zero tolerance on corporate sociopaths. purge dead weight floating employees, bring in fresh passionate minds, don't re-hire former employees described as above

    One of the good ones when it comes to co-op salaries.

    Cons

    The work given wasn't the same as promised during the hiring interview.
