I have been working at BlackBerry full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

It once was an incredible place to work. Fast paced, brilliant talents all across the company. A great learning experience, and rest assured, there is never a dull day in the mobile industry. This market has grown exponentially, and will not be slowing down anytime soon.

I found that the people around me were great. Everyone was keen on doing their job and getting things done. The atmosphere and culture was great (prior to the great fall of the company).

Cons

As mentioned, the company went into a nose dive - which is the reason why atmosphere and culture became dreary.

People confide in their leaders, and ours dropped the ball completely. It's a shame really, we accomplished many things.

We may have lost the battle, but the war is still ongoing. Here's to hoping for success in the future!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Learn from your mistakes. Let the "lesser" employees give input; if you listen to them, you can succeed.

    Pros

    Rewarding work environment, great internal communication, fair to good perks, free BlackBerry, internal development and promotion opportunities, unique situations to build your resume that you may not find in other companies, and a great opportunity for those looking to make a difference in their workplace and to represent a great Canadian brand.

    Cons

    The restructuring changes, but should soon be completed.
