    I worked at BlackBerry full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    It was the people It was the culture It was the location It was the challenge

    Cons

Cylance acquisition has been botched - senior roles snapped up by folks who do not have the first clue about the market or the customers. Regional leadership is weak and just ‘Yes’ men. Confused marketing - how can the market know what BlackBerry are about if the staff don’t?
