I have been working at BlackBerry full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Great perks, great people, competitive salaries. This is a great place to work, with lots of oppourtunity for learning, growth and movement within RIM.

Cons

Some duplication of effort, and a few too many "old school thinkers". Like most companies, its big enough to be slow at certain types of change, and some empire building. For the most part though, people work together.

Advice to Management

Break down the silos, listen to the front-line, and focus on innovating!

    I have been working at BlackBerry full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very smart people. Good people are attracted because of reputation of being the best high tech company in canada. Rim gets high quality graudates from the nearby universities that they vet through the co-op system,

    Cons

    The aura of cleverness prevents people from learning from others. Have to resort to aggressive self promotion to be recognized.

    Advice to Management

    Try to be more imagainative about the people you manage and avoid regimenting people into preconcieved roles.
