What Employees Say
I have been working at Apple full-time for more than a year
Extremely good benefits from healthcare, PTO, and discounts. Very relaxed environment with clearly laid out expectations.
Nothing that sticks out vs other jobs I've had
I have been working at BlackBerry full-time for more than a year
People are wonderful, very welcoming. Very diverse set of skills and abilities within the organization. Never short from learning on a daily basis.
Work-life balance is very difficult. It may be unique to my role given I'm in security and monitoring. BlackBerry has a hard rule from working from home which has only gotten more extreme. Before it... was casual and if you had a good reason, I'm thinking some people abused the freedom we had. Unfortunately this has stifled my family life and I feel like I'm always in the office.
Advice to Management
Discuss hours of operation, work from home capability again. Competing organizations are well advanced in comparison.
