I worked at BlackBerry as an intern for less than a year

Pros

-plenty of email & meeting communication experience
-often have the ability to do the same work as regular full-time staff
-open atmosphere it turns of being able to suggest other ideas
-casual dress code
-people are down-to-earth

Cons

-since it's a very large company it can be easy to feel unimpactful, however people are allowed to take lead roles if they show initiative!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

-management was still stuck in the past; students questioned the need for so many phones and this criticism was in part brushed aside
-but now after losing more money the company has decided to cut many of their phones out of production; why didn't they listen sooner? It seemed pretty obvious that this would happen.
