    Pros

    BlackBerry is a leader in the technology field. BlackBerry 10 is a product that is easy to stand behind and speak in favor of.

    Cons

    Being in a transitionary phase and downsizing from within, it can be hard to move around between organizations in order to advance your career.

    Advice to Management

    It would be great if people were more free to rotate between jobs and between organizations within the company. This is would help with employee development and career growth.
