    I worked at BlackBerry as an intern

    Pros

    It was great time working with BlackBerry. The employees are so helpful and there were many other activities to do. We played basketball and foosball during lunch hour and it was fun.

    Cons

    It was great time working as a co-op but it is difficult to get a full-time job as most of the employees have 7-8 years of experience in the company.

    Advice to Management

    recruit more full-time employee and also provide opportunities for the intern to continue as a full-time employee.

    Pros

    Empowered to do what is needed to keep end customers happy. Work with your friends, Work hard play hard. Lots of work to get done, never a dull boring moment.

    Cons

    Some departments could be perceived as silo'd. It was difficult to understand holistically how to solve a problem if it extended outside of your business unit. At times, it was viewed that legal and hr coverage was more important than doing the right thing.

    Advice to Management

    Turn it around.
