    I have been working at BlackBerry full-time

    Pros

    Flexible work schedules
    Pay is very competitive
    Access to cool new devices through beta programs
    Company provides you with new BB device and pays for data/voice
    Ice cream days in the summer

    Cons

    Little potential for promotion to higher roles
    Senior management (C-Level) does no communicate down to employees well
    Too many layers of management (Team Lead, Manager, Sr Manager, Director, Sr Director etc)
    Its hard to be proud of working for a company that wants to be 3rd place

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start making logical decisions that will actually help the company do better and retain employees
    Keep employment at BlackBerry in Canada - no more outsourcing
    Lean out the many layers of management

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Approves of CEO
