Featured Review

Current Employee - Security Analyst

I have been working at BlackBerry full-time for more than a year

Pros

People are wonderful, very welcoming. Very diverse set of skills and abilities within the organization. Never short from learning on a daily basis.

Cons

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.

Current Contractor - Mechanical Engineer

I have been working at Bruce Power

Pros

I am a professional engineer of a certain age who was frankly fed up with dysfunctional and toxic workplaces. I had turned down several other lucrative offers on that basis before BP came calling,... but I was pleasantly surprised by what I found here. There has clearly been a lot of thought put into their organizational principles and practices, which help workers to produce their best. This extends to the physical comfort of the workspace, which is important for me. In summary, a very progressive management philosophy. The approach to safety is comprehensive. They support your specific training needs, in fact they insist on it!

Cons

None really. Some other reviewers here gripe about the weather (it's Canada) and the distance from Toronto (aka the centre of the universe). Probably The same ones who didn't want a nuclear PP... built downtown I guess.

Advice to Management

Work on making your homegrown information systems more comprehensible to newbies. Otherwise keep up the great work.
