I have been working at BlackBerry full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Well known brand, great autonomy for managers that are interested in achieving and progressing their team, scope to add and implement your ideas, clear recognition for good efforts, not so beurocratic, dynamic work experience, friendly approachable people, good salary.

Cons

Uncertainties/insecurity of the company during the recent transition period,
Management has been lacking accountability.
I get a feeling that quite a few people are not sufficiently qualified/experienced for their roles and making up as they go along, while others have to work harder to fill the gap.

Advice to Management

Set clear accountabilities for management and hold them to it. Foster and reward innovation in every department.

    Pros

    Have a very good team and all team members cooperated very well.

    Cons

    No clear marketing designation. Poor management caused many delays. High-level managers didn't come to an agreement before project kick-off.

    Advice to Management

    Develop a clear roadmap and share with different teams, enhance marketing capabilities.
