Wish them the best

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at BlackBerry full-time for more than a year

ProsIt used to be a great place to work with, great benefits and work atmosphere. A lot of it changed due the the crisis they are facing.

ConsCompany got behind the times, they had a good product, but made decisions that did not pay off. Very unstable place to work right now.

Advice to Senior ManagementI wish the company the best, even though I was just laid off in a weird manner. Hope BlackBerry 10 can get the company back in shape, and no more people have to lose their jobs.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
