    I have been working at BlackBerry full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good benefits
    Flexible working
    Interesting industry
    Ability to test pre-release devices

    Cons

    Overladen with processes nobody adheres to/respects
    Silo mentality - you find yourself working against other business units rather than with them
    There are far too many political wars going on. I know RIM isn't the only company that experiences this, but for a company currently in a turnaround transition, this is ridiculous. Far too much backstabbing, petty arguments etc
    Nobody wants to take accountability for decisions, that's why it takes weeks even months to reach solutions
    Some senior executives are grossly incompetent, relying on their teams to help them look good. RIM is a boys club, with senior exec promotions being based on who you know rather than your merit and intelligence

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire your indecisive, egotistical, and emotionally unstable senior execs and start looking for realt talent outside of RIM

    I worked at BlackBerry full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    payed well in general but not for all the positions

    Cons

    don't work too hard. otherwise, if got injured, you'll see the company's true ugly face. all their unfair treatment to employees done verbally, no proof to suit them

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    get rid of some of HR craps and health safety craps, the company will regain strength

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
