    I worked at BlackBerry as an intern (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good salary, paid phone, good working environment, friendly co-workers.
    Conveniently located next to University of Waterloo, which allowed me to take courses during my internship.
    Flexible day schedule.

    Cons

    Poorly organized management,
    Long hierarchical chain,
    Tasks at times very boring and not challenging at all.
    The way things are done, generally have to stay that way. No one wants to change anything major.

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

    Pros

    None. If I could rate it zero I would.

    Cons

    These "Great Place To Work" reviews seem very phony to me; absolutely ridiculous! How can anyone say it's a great place to work when no one knows who will be laid-off next? A complete mess created by "yes" people in mis-management. I could see this train wreck coming a mile off.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management created a toxic atmosphere of non-respect and extreme backstabbing. The Execs consistently looked they other way. It was a Machiavellian work environment until it finally destroyed them. Absolutely no "team" philosophy here. Work you 24/7 and constantly crapped on by management.
