    I have been working at BlackBerry full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    One of the few High Tech Canadian companies where you can learn a lot if you are willing to take the challenges and don't sit in your laurels. Good benefits, nice work environment, competitive salaries and opportunity to grow. There is always something new to learn.

    Cons

    RIM didn't do a good job in hiring the best people during its explosive growth. Many toxic people came in and created bureaucracy (they call it processes) and a culture of playing safe and cover their asses which slowed down the dynamics of the company and created feuds and internal fights. Some still prevail.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean up the bureaucrats and promote a culture of taking risks and be agile. Do not let the excessive processes to slow us down. We need more "TO DO" people. We have had enough of "pseudo-bosses" that only want to give orders but not do anything or that feel are too good to roll up their sleeves and do the hard work.
    I have a lot of confidence in the new CEO because he's been doing just this. Please keep it doing it.
