They paid for my gym membership every year
best thing is 401k company match
They paid me. They gave me experience. You get to use a BlackBerry phone for business.
5% 401k match after six months.
As a contractor, sick time was the only benefit
The benefits are very competitive.
Competitive health insurance, 401K, SUPERB vacations, and other perks
I thought the benefits package at Blackberry was very reasonable. Plenty of healthcare choices and good matching on the 401k.
best: 5% 401K match, good vacation - starts at 3 weeks, 4 for senior engineer. worst: no stock purchase (yet?), few stock options. Generally those are good/expected at tech companies. For BB, maybe it's just as well!
pay, bonus, 401k, insurance are excellent.
