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.

Lack of promotion opportunities, slow moving.

Advice to Management

Make it easier to fire non-performance and enable strong performers to advance faster.
