    I have been working at BlackBerry as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You are the first people to be aware of the new phones, tablets etc.

    Cons

    Long hours and early starts.

    Advice to Management

    For training, it is baically a non-stop process. You are active most of the day, not even able to have a cup of tea.

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

    Pros

    Generous pay scales and benefits. Great vision and product plans. Can present a good learning curve for some.

    Cons

    Generous pay scales and benefits. Lack of aligned management. Getting recognition depends on personal relationships and not through skills/hard work.

    Advice to Management

    Look down the ladder, the middle management is quite stacked and more people are needed at the base to dot he actual hands on work
