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

    Pros

    Remarkably brilliant staff members, genuinely top flight technology. Renewed sense of purpose amongst certain parts of the business. Real focus on the customer. Thorsten is working hard to streamline and to make sure the company has a fighting chance.

    Cons

    Confused leadership in certain parts of the business, nutty budgeting processes, some leaders are just simply corrupt. Work/life balance can be tough. Hypergrowth and acquisitions have left a weird organization with confused values, and many fiefdoms. Bringing in dozens of executives from AT&T has changed the organization, perhaps not for the better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a long, hard look at the people leading the organization...some of them are feathering their own nests.

    Recommends
    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at BlackBerry as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Fantastic Company, great campus, great people, and good oportunity

    Cons

    Have become technologically stagnant, and need to start innovating more

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    allow employees to test other technologies rather than frown on them for using something other than a BB

    Recommends
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
