    Approves of CEO

    I worked at BlackBerry full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The work environment was very relaxed (comfortable clothes were the norm). Most of the people at the company were very friendly and easy to deal with.

    Cons

    The pay was a little below market value and the PM process mattered more than project outcomes. The PMO was dealing with an immature organization that was not aware of the role they needed to play in the process (The norm was the team expected PM to sit in his cube and manage the project with no input from them...It was like pulling teeth).

    Advice to Management

    Process shouldn't be more important than results. Better right the ship fast.

    I worked at BlackBerry full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    great training/experience. great people. was once a good product

    Cons

    lack of vision on the future. nothing gets through the "sponge."

    Advice to Management

    if you have certain criteria upon which to measure employees for raises/bonuses/job advancement... stick to it. no ones wants to see a 5 year lawyer attain a level of Vice-President that is normally reserved for 15+ year lawyers. It's bad for morale and illustrates a lack of judgment.
