Neutral Outlook
Disapproves of CEO

I worked at BlackBerry as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

Very reasonable rent in the area (Waterloo), opportunity to get Services exposure (albeit too late for the firm)

Cons

Former CEOs never communicated strategy, inability to focus on external partners, low quality software teams

Advice to Management

Understand that both software and hardware are becoming commoditized, but at least focus on building a credible platform for all partners.
