  1. Good company overall, poor personal experience

    I worked at BlackBerry

    Pros

    I cannot speak for the main offices, but in our remote office we had good benefits, competitive salary, and a mostly friendly atmosphere.

    Cons

    Although the company has made improvements to their products and image, there are still many problems with inter-department communication, management, morale, and corporate nonsense.

    Advice to Management

    Cut down on all the red tape, simplify processes (for example, it takes too much work to get access to new equipment). Realize that many employees in management positions are only trying to make themselves look good so their positions aren't eliminated, and otherwise are not contributing much to the company or its products. Internal systems are boated, redundant, confusing, and inefficient, which causes things to take 10 times as long to accomplish as they should.

  2. Great working environment, few career opportunities
